You’ll like it too…

The steamed barramundi (ikan siakap) that we had that day was so very very good that I decided to ask my sister to come over to our house so she too could give it a try – I was so very sure that she would like it too!

My missus took another one from the four that I bought and steamed it…

…and we had that for lunch.

Yes, she loved it but it was way too big to give her one to steam and eat on her own. I don’t think she would be able to finish it in a day, lunch and dinner and one thing about steamed fish…

…is it will not be so nice if you keep it to eat the next day.

We did not cook much else to eat with the fish and the rice but my missus made this salad…

…for the vegetable dish.

I went out and bought the awesome fish soup…

…from here.

Can you recognise it? I bought it earlier that morning and heated it up before serving so it did not look quite the same and it did not taste as nice as having it fresh at the food court/coffee shop. Still, everybody was full of praises – they all loved it and my girl loved the meat balls. Of course, I did not eat those since I am on a no red meat diet and she was delighted that I passed all of mine to her.

My sister enjoyed it too – she thought RM6.00 for a bowl of that (50 sen extra for your choice of noodles added) was a steal. I am pretty sure she will make her way there one of these days just for this!!!

There you have it! Our simple lunch that day just so my sister would be able to try the very nice barramundi (ikan siakap) and like it too, just like all of us!

  1. Simple and yet delicious. Yes, the soup looks darker in shade compare to what you had fresh at the place. Hmm, why was it so? I love the salad most, nice and refreshing vegetable dish.

    The soup? It is darker because of the fried shallots. That happens when it is absorbed by the water/soup…and usually, the soup will acquire its taste and fragrance. Happens when they sprinkle a bit in the complimentary soup that they give with a plate of kampua mee. Oh ya!!! They do not give that with kolo mee – not surprised that you don’t know.

  2. Yes, a very balanced meal indeed…. I like all the dishes above!

    Yes, and hardly any oil…except in the minced meat in the soup! So very healthy!

  3. What a good lunch! Your steamer must be quite big to accommodate the fish.

    We just use our wok – it’s pretty big…or big enough for a fish, at least. Anything bigger, we would be forced to cut into two and steam the halves side by side. Can still fit in.

  4. Steamed fish is to be eaten fresh. It will not taste nice even for the next meal. The salad and soup look good and delicious too.

    Yes, best to steam half for lunch, keep the other half and steam that for dinner if you can’t finish it all at one go. Worse if you have to keep it till the next day. The sauce will drown out the lovely mild taste and sweetness of the fish completely, not nice anymore after that.

  5. Love your missus’ salad. Looked refreshing and tasty. Steamed fish anytime for me.

    You get the freshest whenever your hubby goes out to sea, lucky you. From the sea right unto your plate!!!

  6. She certainly has a way with her knife & fish heh? Expertly done.

    He, not she. He’s a boy, the one who cleaned and prepared the fish for steaming at the fish stall!
