FISH MEE SUAH SOUP


It's incredulous what people goggles for; it provides an insight of what's on people's mind. This is something someone was goggling, but I'm not sure it's the same recipe. This is my mom's cooking. The fish used is called Si-Ten or Hakka calls it Tofu fish.

It's a rather simple dish of clear broth, and a rather bland taste. The cilantro part is over done, 'cos it's something that is grown in abundance in dad's backyard.

Remove the fish's head , gut and clean the fish. Rub with salt, then rinse throughly before use.


INGREDIENTS

300 gm. Fish

1 Clove Garlic


10 gm. Ginger

Salt & MSG.

Cilantro






METHOD


Add 6 tbsp. of cooking oil into a hot wok. Then quickly fry the garlic and ginger until golden and fragrant.

Remove the ginger and garlic, and set aside to be used later.

Pour the garlic/ginger infused oil into a pot; add 4 cups of water and bring to a boil. Add in the fish. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Season with salt and MSG.

In a separate pot of water, cook the mee suah (tread noodle). When the noodle rises to the top of water, scoop out to a bowl. Then top with the fish and soup.

Garnish with the fried ginger and garlic, plus cilantro.

Along came dad... Pioong!!! The bountiful cilantro garnish would have Pim screaming, "Murder!"
