A lot of times when I cook fish, especially frozen batang/ kite fish, I get put off by the stinky odour. The odour doesn’t mean that the fish has gone bad though. Find out how to get rid of it in this post.
The other night, I was feeling quite bad for not cooking for the longest time. I don’t like to come up with new dishes for dinner because the lighting is bad and the pictures usually turn out crap. And so when I do fix dinner, I don’t take photos.. not as often as before. How did I do it?
I was talking to a friend the other day about working mums. I am lucky that 1) I’m not a mum and 2) I get off work at 5pm and reach home by 6. And even so, I sometimes (most times these days) just want to spend all the time I have listening to all the music I can listen to, or read all the books that I haven’t read. And even before doing these two things, the time on the clock reads 11pm. Where did the time go? So, I really applaud working mums who really have a 24/7 job. When and if I become a mum, what’s gonna happen to my me-time? It’s not even enough now. I’m not sure I can handle it.
And you know, lazy working girls fix lazy dinners. I wanted to use up the frozen fish in my fridge so I can restock with new stuff to cook, so I placed four pieces of batang fish in a large bowl of milk and left it to defrost in the fridge. The idea was also to use up the curry paste, laksa paste, and coconut milk that Ayam Brand generously sent over. Honestly, I had no idea how I wanted to cook the fish, but I opened my treasure box of sponsored sauces and got inspired when I saw laksa paste + coconut milk. Ok! Laksa fish it’s gonna be!
I’m gonna cook this weekend so look out for new recipes coming your way! In other news, I foresee busy weeks ahead, with lots of writing + proposals (for work), recipe challenges + advertorials (for the blog) and accommodation booking + itinerary research (for Spain!!!!) coming up. I’ll be in Barcelona, Seville, Cordoba and Madrid from mid November for about two weeks. I cannot wait! Let me know if there are must-eat places? I promise to eat your share!
