Fish Porridge

The weather in Singapore is really very hot these days... In order to beat the heat and whet our appetite, my chef cooked fish porridge for our lunch.

Fish Porridge

Main Ingredients:
1. (uncooked) Rice (washed and drained)
2. Batang Fish & Red Snapper
3. Preserved Chinese Cabbage (Dong Cai; 冬菜)
4. Light Soya Sauce
5. Water

Ingredients M:
1. Corn Flour
2. Hua Diao Wine (花雕酒)
3. Light Soya Sauce
4. Pepper
5. Salt
6. Sesame Oil

Ingredients G:
1. Chinese Parsley (chopped)
2. Spring Onions (chopped)
3. Fried Shallot
4. Fried Ginger Strips

1. Clean the Batang Fish & Red Snapper and cut them into slices. Marinate the fish slices with Ingredients M and set aside.
2. Place the washed uncooked rice grains and water into a pot and bring to boil before lowering the heat.
3. When the rice grains start to soften, add the Dong Cai and Light Soya Sauce.
4. Put in the marinated fish slices and then bring the porridge to a boil.
5. Garnish the porridge with Ingredients G and serve.

Hi Dora! I normally have porridge when it's cold though. Your porridge looks yummy, I think I'll try that this weekend. I just hope the ingredients are readily available here.

thanks for visiting my site and for leaving a comment.
