I know many of you will be wondering why I cook only western food most of the time, but actually I am an all rounder...I eat from East to West and I will choose something simple and yet delicious. I do not mind going to all the trouble to prepare something that I enjoy eating. If I am hard pressed for time, like I have to attend a cell group meeting, than even a bowl of instant mee would be fine, but provided veggies and fresh shrooms are added to it :) I can slurp down a bowl of instant mee if there are shrooms in it and still enjoy it like it is a five star restaurant food :p Okay, last night, I prepared this simple meal for us...Pan Fried Flounder / Ikan Sebelah , with some purple potato slices and a simple salad of tomato and lettuce with Thousand Island sauce. I managed to get some Flounder fillets from Jusco....it was double the outside price but worth it coz it was thick and very fresh. For Wild Boar sake, I bought the fillet ones :) and decided to pan fried them with just a rub of black pepper and sea salt. Simple and yet delicious ! Chinese cooking takes a lot of time and only weekend or holiday, I will make special chinese dishes that needs lots of time in the kitchen :)
Wendy of Table For 2 or More was kind to sms me that there were purple potatoes for sale at Tesco :) and needless to say, I grabbed two nettings @ RM2.40 each. Came home and could not wait to devour them. Sliced them thinly and sauted in olive oil for 5 mins in non-stick pan , add 1/2 cup water and cook under medium heat till it soften and cooked through , add salt and mixed herbs . Dish up and served as a side dish. It has a more earthly smell than the normal potatoes but I love it ! Whipped up a simple salad and we had a hearty simple dinner last night. The Flounder fillets was delicious. Crispy on the outside and tender juicy on the inside. un délicieux repas !
these purple potatoes are from US and normally
it costs me RM 7 for a kilo but I got it for
RM2.40 - offered price :)
a simple salad with just fresh tomatoes and lettuce
actually that was what I have in the fridge
and thousand island sauce for dressing
pan fried fish with grapeseed oil is much healthier,
for grapeseed oil can stand high heat and it is healthy oil
a hearty and satisfying dinner for the two of us...and
Le poisson était délicieux ! - this means ' the fish was delicious ! '
Jo learns French so I must better her
