Steam tofu with fish paste


This is the "post festive" dish I turn to when we overate during the festive season and need to eat " clean and simple " food.

When someone in the family has no appetite, unwell or when I am pressed for time. I called it my lazy dish.

It becomes the "supplement" dish when I have young children joining us for the meal.

My late grandmother used to serve this dish very often when we were young.
She would buy fresh Ikan Parang fish paste and tofu from the market for her precious princesses.

The fish paste I use in this recipe is Ikan Parang and come marinated which means you do not need to add anything to it.

Substitute it with fresh fish balls If you cannot find any marinated fish paste in the supermarket, just gather the fish balls in a bowl and break it up with a potatoes masher or fork.

This is by far the easiest recipe on my blog.  Mash and steam,  an under 15 minutes recipe.

No excuses to eat out, home cooking can be convenient.

You will need:

200gm of fish meat/paste
300gm of silken tofu
salt and pepper to taste
spring onion to garnish
dash of sesame seed oil (optional)

1. Combine and mash the fish paste and tofu in a dish for steaming.

2. Place the dish in the steamer when the water (in the steamer)boil.
3. Steam under moderate heat for about 7-10 mins
4. Garnish with spring onion and sesame seed oil and served immediately

Cooks' Notes:

1. This dish is best when eaten immediately/hot.
2. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and dash of pepper if your fish paste is not marinated.
