What can I do when there is plenty of food around.. but no idea what to make. Hmm.. how about something fusion? I had a heavily vegan week last week, which ended with a huge overeating binge at GBK.. so this weekend, with a slightly upset tummy, I thought why not have some fish.
Using one of my parents’ classics recipes, with a Lysandra twist to it, I steamed the fish with pounded garlic & ginger, lime juice & salted soy beans (chinese miso). My parents’ method usually included pickled chinese mustard leaves or sour plums.. neither of which I had at the moment, so I substituted with lime juice and a sliced gherkin. It was still delicious. I used the foil-wrap in oven method of steaming instead as on the hob, as the other dishes I made today also used the oven.
The other two dishes was roast sweet potato cubes, and cheesy kale. I cut the sweet potato into cubes for quick cooking, marinated with olive oil, fajita spice and garlic granules. The kale – I washed in tap water, massaged some oil into it, and put in the oven with the fish for 15 minutes. I then switched the oven to broil, added some cheese, and put it in for five.
Odd mix of food, yes, very odd. But on their own, all 3 dishes were delicious. Together they were odd, but I’m the only person eating it so who cares right? Now to plan dinner!
