But I would make it a point to try (try being the operative word here) to conjure something up in the kitchen for Hubby's arrival every Friday night. Last week was udang nestum. This week, I wanted to use the salmon that has been sitting in my freezer since my last trip to Tesco. The difference between this salmon and my previous failed attempt in making salmon spiral marinara is that this salmon is fresh while the previous one was frozen packed (and therefore very hanyir!) so remember, fresh salmon is the key!
Distinctively remembered that a fellow blogger cum future neighbour of mine had recently shared her recipe for making a meal out of salmon. So I spent the whole evening going through her blog and finally decided to try Eynda's Salmon Masak Berlada.
Fry the salmon. Because Aiden cannot eat chilli, we set aside a portion of the fried salmon for his meal.
Blend bawang besar, cili merah and cili padi. Increase the number of cili padi to increase the pedas intensity. Set aside. You will also need asam keping and shredded daun limau purut. Set these aside as well.
....until garing and pecah minyak.
Put in the salmon, mix well and you're done!
There you go, chilli fried salmon. Check out Eynda's blog for a more flattering photo.
I also made udang nestum again this week. Gara gara tension sebab minggu lepas tak jadi. And it turned out better!
XXL sized prawns. See, this is how the nestum should look like. Not soggy but crunchy!
Anyway, Hubby was extremely impressed with the Chilli Fried Salmon that he actually scooped some rice into the dish plate just to get every single drop of the kuah. Thanks Eynda, such an easy recipe but we truly enjoyed the end result.
For the rest of you, happy trying!
