Snow pea with Chinese mushroom and pork

Stir-fried snow peas with Chinese mushroom and pork are simple to make. The cooking time does not take long. I decided to put some Chinese mushrooms and pork to make the dish look colourful. If you don’t like the Chinese mushrooms, you can eliminate them and make stir-fried snow peas with pork.
If you decide to use the Chinese mushroom, You can make the dry mushrooms the night before in an instant pot to save time. Leave them to soak inside instant pot water overnight.
First, I cook the porks. It cooks fast in the pan. Keep an eye on the pork, or it will become tough. The pork needs to be cooked well-done without any pink or red inside showing. When done cooking in a frying pan, put it into a bowl and set it aside.
Second, I re-use the same frying pan and cook the snow peas. I put the snow pea into the frying pan. I stir the snow peas a bit. Pour a bit of water into the pan. Then close the lid and let it cook for a bit. After a minute, open the lid, take a piece and taste if it’s crunchy and tender. Once it is the right texture, that means it is ready.
Since the Chinese mushroom are cooked in an instant pot and ready to eat. I pour the Chinese mushroom into the pan with the snow pea. I stir a bit. Then added a bit of water. I close the lid and wait until the water starts boiling. Once the water starts boiling. Pour in the pork pieces and stir them all together. Turn off the heat, scoop up all the snow peas with Chinese mushroom and pork onto a plate and place it on the table.
Kids and adults will like this dish a lot. You can eat this dish for lunch or dinner. I recommend having this with rice. This snow peas with Chinese mushroom and pork and the sauce can be mixed with the rice. If you can’t finish it, you can put it in the fridge and eat it the next day. Once you eat it, you will know how good this is. Try the recipe and enjoy.

Steamed pampano topped with green onions

This is a steamed pampano fish topped with green onions. It is the 28th time I made this fish. You can find pampano fish at a Chinese supermarket. It usually comes in a frozen package. Sometimes when you choose pampapno fish it comes in small and big in the package. If you buy big, you can have more to eat compare to eating a small pampano fish. When buying a forzen fish, most of the time it needs to be clean. When you learn how to clean a fish, you will get the hang of it and can clean any kind of fish.
Making a good steam fish needs to be marinated with salt, turmeric, soya sauce, garlic powder, garlic and onions outside and inside. If your pampano does not have a fresh smell then put some Chinese cooking wine inside. It will make the fish taste better. If the pamapno is fresh, you do not need to put any cooking wine. The Chinese cooking wine can be bought at a Chinese supermarket. Most of the time I like to steam the pampano fish because it is simple and fast.
To steam a pampano fish, take a portable steamer or a large pan. Pour some water and boil on high heat. Close the lid. When the water starts boiling, Put in the pampano into the steamer. I steam the fish for 8 minutes because it’s a small fish. You can steam it for 1-2 extra minutes to ensure it is properly cooked. Make sure do not over cook the fish or the fish meat will not taste good. To know if the fish is ready. Take a knife and insert it in the middle. If you feel the bone, that means it’s ready. If not, you need to cook it a bit longer. When it is done, be careful taking the plate of steam fish out of the steamer. It is very hot.
When eating the fish, there are bones. Be careful eating it. The meats inside are very awesome and tasty. I like it a lot. You can defrost the frozen pampano fish the night before in the fridge.
When eating fish, it is best to go with rice. Make sure there are no bones before mixing it into the rice. It is best to eat the whole fish on the same day once it is steam, to get the freshness of the fish. Try to make this fish, and you will like it a lot.

Direction Cleaning:
1. Take the frozen Pampano out of the freezer.
2. Take a bowl of hot water and soak the frozen pampano fish in the bowl, to unfrozen it for about 4-5 minutes.
3. Put a pair of dishwasher gloves.
4. Take it out of the bowl.
5. Open the bag with scissors and take the fish out of the bag.
6. Wash the fish
7. Take a knife and fish. At an angle of the knife, scrape off the scales everywhere on the fish. This fish does not have a 8. lot of scales to scrape off. Compare to other fishes. If the fish have a not fresh smell. Put some salt on both sides of the body and inside too!
(Note: putting salt can take the non-fresh smell away.)
9. Take scissors and cut off the mouth guard. Cut a straight line on the stomach almost to the middle
10. Take out all the disgusting intestine, the red guts and also the mouth guard out of the fish.
11. When it is all clean. Rinse inside and make sure there is no dirty thing inside.
12. When done. Rinse the fish again and put it on a plastic bowl to get all the water out.

Preparing the onions, peppers and ginger:
1. Take an onion. Use a knife peeler and peel the onion skin.

4. Place them into a bowl and set it aside.
5. Take a bag of small peppers.
6. Take a slice cutter and make sure the knife is attach to the slice cutter.

4. Inside the fish, sprinkle some salt, garlic powder and pour some soya sauce, turmeric and Chinese cooking wine.
5. Spread some onions on top of the fish, inside and some at the bottom of the plate.
6. In the bowl, take some sliced ginger strips and spread them on top of the fish. Then put some inside the fish. Then topped some sliced pieces of orange peppers.
