The Mr and I have decided to abstain from meat on Fridays so we either go full-fledged veg or have an addition of seafood. And I must say, it’s not a bad idea at all! (: Of course, it’s so much easier to cook meat dishes. But this makes me think out of the box and try things that I don’t usually cook! Just the thought of it makes me excited!
My brother stopped eating meat about 2 years ago and there are a few dishes mummy makes for him that I decided that I should give it a go. Mummy is really amazing. She tries her best to cook a whole variety of things for korkor and they are all super delicious. Needless to say, mummy and my grandmother are the 2 people who inspires me to cook. (:
One of my favourite seafood dishes I love (and there is quite a list haha) is mummy’s steamed seafood egg toufu. It’s healthy and super good. You could easily eat a whole bowl. Mum usually makes hers with fresh soy bean milk (unsweetened) but I went a quicker way (and cheated) and used soft toufu instead. Of course the texture is not as smooth as it could be. But the flavour was close!
So I would recommend this for people who don’t eat meat, and are aiming to get healthier in time to come! I think most of us are striving for a healthier us, right? Take the first step! Of course, exercise is necessary! So here’s the recipe :
Steamed Seafood Egg Toufu (Adapted from Mummy)
1 tube of silky toufu
3 whole eggs, lightly beaten
250g prawn, cute into small pieces
100g fish paste
3 tsp fish sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
ground white pepper, for seasoning
fried shallots and spring onion (for garnish, optional)
1. Cut the top of the tube of silky toufu and squeeze the toufu into a big bowl. (Don’t worry, it should be mashed)
2. Pour the beaten eggs into the bowl and mix well with a whisk. Add the fish paste and prawn. Whisk the mixture till well combined.
3. Season with fish sauce and pepper. Steam for 30-35mins or until cooked through.
4. Pour the sesame oil over the egg, and garnish with fried shallots and spring onions.
Give it a go and let me know what u think! (:
