If you could recall my previous post on my fish shopping at Kuala Selangor 2 weeks ago, it's about time to blog about how I deal with those seafood. The frozen scallops as you can see from my photos below were huge and meaty. A bag of 12 pieces costs us RM20 which I find quite a deal. For tonite, am going to steam 6 pieces, 3 for me and 3 for hubby!
The best way to cook the scallop is to steam it with either garlic or ginger. I prefer garlic as it's more aromatic. All you got to do is to chop the garlic till it's really fine and then mix it with a bit of sesame oil, a dash of shaoxing wine and salt.
Next, put a teaspoon of garlic on each scallops and spread it evenly. I let it marinade about 10 - 15 minutes before putting into a pot of boiling water to steam for about 4 - 5 minutes.
The end result???? Absolutely delicious!! The photo says it all!
As for the Kurau fish (can anyone tell me what is this fish called in English?), you can either steam or fried but both Hubby and I preferred fried version.
The fish was really fresh as it was caught the day we bought it, thus no sticking-to-the-pan problem. When the fish is cooked, with the remaining oil in the pan, stir-fry some chopped garlic, shallot and ginger till golden brown and scoop it onto the fish.
A few dash of good quality soya sauce...and there you go, a plate of very tasty fried fish!
