Tofu with ginger, onions and topped with green onions

This is the 13th time I have made steamed tofu topped with onions and ginger. It is the easiest recipe to make and not too hard. It does not take long. Most supermarkets sell tofu. Most of the time I get tofu at a Chinese supermarket. It comes in all different kinds of tofu texture. I decided to use firm tofu. Firm tofu are easier to cut. Using soft or medium tofu can break easily when you cut it too hard.
This is the healthiest dish you can make. Steaming tofu is healthier. The tofu is very tasty. I like this dish a lot. I decided add some onions and ginger on the top of the tofu to look nice and colourful.
Kids and adults would love this steam tofu a lot. The best combination that goes well with this dish is rice. You can mix the tofu and sauce in the rice. When you have no idea what to make on that day, you can consider making this steam tofu. A fast, easy dish to make. Try the recipe and enjoy.

Pampano fish topped with green onions and coriander

This is the 19th time I made steamed pampano fish topped with green onions and corinader. The pampano fish smells so good when it comes out of the steamer. It is fresh fish from a frozen package. You can buy pampano fish at a Chinese supermarket.
To be marinated the fish I put 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 in it. The Chinese cooking wine can be bought at a Chinese supermarket. Steaming fish is very healthier.
To steam a pampano fish, you have to 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 the pampano into the steamer. I steam the fish for 8 minutes. If it;s a large pampano fish, it needs to be steam for 12 minutes. You can steam it for 1-2 extra minutes to ensure it is properly cooked. 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. Pampano is one of my favorite fish.
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. Once you eat this steam pampano fish, you will like it a lot. Try to make this fish, and you will enjoy it.

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.
