From the previous dish that i did recently, steamed tilapia with sesame oil, well this is the other part of the fish that i fillet…hehe. So yeah, i’ve decided to not to do the same thing, instead i pan fried it. Pan fried tilapia with balsamic reduction. Sounds a bit posh ho..hehe..nothing much ba. What i did was simple. As i mentioned before this, the toughest part of this dish will be to fillet the fish rite?.. 🙂 Now, how do i pan fried this..let’s see.
First of all, i coat the fillet with some flour. At first i wanted to do the same way that i did the fried calamari, but then again, i malas la..hehe..so i just did a single coating lo. But, it was good enough la. So after that, a little salt for seasoning and pan fried it, skin side down (i love to say this, sounds like a true chef ..heh :))
Then, leave it as it is. At this point don’t touch the fish. Let it be, let the crust to be formed. Shake the pan a little to make sure it doesn’t stick (only after a 2-3mins). Slowly flip the fillet to the other side after you think its ready. It doesn’t take very long to cook actually, 5-6mins tops.
Kai-lan, also known as chinese broccoli, one of my favorite greens. And yes, its been a while since i makan this. I think the last time i makan this was like ages ago, and that time also my mum yang cook it..i think i really need to take the initiative to cook more of those vegie that i didn’t eat for ages, rather then wait and hope. 🙂
Anyway, there you go for now. I still got 2 more days of leave to cook. Still struggling to think what else i can cook. Wanted to do dessert, but ..but..hmm..Just wait and see la. If i didn’t post anything by 2mlo or day after, then that’s all from me la..for now..
It was really nice to cook again. Especially after so long never really hold a knife and spend longer than 30mins in kitchen 🙂 sad man..but i must say, it was my pleasure to present to you all my cooking experience as well as taking those awesome kick-ass pictures. …
Wait..not over yet..still got 2 more days.. hehe 🙂
