Give me more…

Yes, they just keep on coming! Yan gave me fish from Kapit, Kpenyu brought me prawns and fish from Kota Kinabalu and Bukitassek gave me prawns too…and my brother-in-law as well – prawns and fish from Bintulu. Just when I thought that was it, my insurance agent dropped by my house and gave me more…

According to him, he and his friends would drive to Bintulu where they would hire a boat to go out to sea to fish. He said that the boat man knew where to berth – where there would be a lot of fish and they would have a field day bringing in a whole lot…of all shapes and sizes. He gave me two “ang cho“, pinkish in colour and hence, its name, and two “chiok pan“…

One of them had been cleaned while the other one was still in its natural state. I took them to my mother’s house and steamed them for her to eat – nice and fresh from the sea! As in the case of the ikan semah I received from Yan, there was no need for a lot of ingredients – a few slices of ginger and garlic and topped with Chinese celery would suffice. I did sprinkle over the fish a pinch of salt and msg…

…and then I steamed it for a few minutes and the fish was ready!

It was “sweet” and my mother liked it! I only had a bit and I must say that I couldn’t agree more. Next time, I’ll cook the “Nemo” that Kpenyu gave me! Watch out for the post! LOL!!!

A Blessed & Holy Good Friday to all Christian readers…
