Steamed Seafood Egg Toufu

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)

Ingredients :

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)

Steps :

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.

DONE! (:
