Sauted Fish Fillet & Celery in Oriental Style

When visited China for the first time about 9 years ago I had this menu and I always remember how delicious it was, specially because I had it after a long work day and meeting. I was hungry, tired, and it had fish (I like fish), what a perfect dinner. Now I try to recreate the taste in my kitchen, I think it is close but something is still missing, probably I am not as hungry or tired as it was 🙂

1. Prepare 1C sliced celery, 1/2 C shiitake mushroom ( preferably the fresh ones ), 2 cloves of garlic-chopped, 1C fish fillet (I use sole fish, snapper or cod fillet will do). For the sauce, mix 1.5 tbsp rice cooking wine, 1 tbsp fish sauce, 1 tbsp sesame oil, 3 dash white pepper. Marinate the fish fillet in the mixture of 1tsp ginger juice, 1tbsp rice cooking wine, 1 tbsp all purpose flour, and 1 tbsp tapioca for 10 minutes.

3. Add 1 tbsp oil to the pan, add chopped garlic then celery and mushroom, saute for +/- 3 minutes. Pour the sauce mixture then add the fillet. Stir until well combined and the liquid reduced.

4. Add the mixture of 1/3C water + 1tsp tapioca on the last, this is to get the shine coating look, stir well, serve.

5. Bon appétit.

Crochet Placemat with Batik Edge Binding – DIY

Balik lagi ke crochet addiction, kali ini idea nya dari link di sini. Sebenarnya versi original nya sudah cantik tapi rasanya kurang seru kalau cuma mengcopy paste apa adanya saja. Nah biar lebih fun saya modifikasi sedikit pattern nya, baris 18 dihilangkan dan langsung diakhiri dengan single crochet untuk trim nya. Sesudah itu tinggal menambah edge binding dr kain batik perca.

Pas ngambil photo, jadi muncul idea memajang piring “bersejarah” ini. Critanya ini piring sudah travel 1/2 lingkaran bumi dari Pontianak sampai Atlanta. Ini piring peninggalan keluarga suami, dari generasi kakeknya. Walaupun bukan piring mewah atau fancy, tp sejarah keberadaan nya sudah cukup membuatnya istimewa… apalagi kalau membayangkan si little M akan menjadi generasi ke 4 yang memakainya.
