This recipe is shared by my hubby’s friend when I saw him posted this delicious looking food at his own Facebook account.  This friend of his really loves to cook and his posts makes me drool. Figuratively speaking.  What’s also great in his food posts are really affordable, they can be easily found in the nearby market.  Well, for this recipe, except for the fish fillet, that’s why I stock up for the fillet when we went to the grocery store last week.  

Since this was an unmeasured shared recipe, he pm-ed me the ingredients and recipe but not the measurements, I can’t use my recipe plugin for this.  I will just be sharing the instructions on how to do it, and it will be up to you to play with the measurements.  

 
fish fillet in white sauce

 

I used 3 pcs. of cream dory fish fillets, I think it is almost 2 kilos if you weigh them.  Marinade them with calamansi juice, turmeric, salt and pepper.  Let it sit for 15-30 minutes.  While you’re waiting, prepare the ingredients for breading the fillets, you need 1 lightly beaten egg & Japanese bread crumbs.  Dip the fillets in the beaten egg, then into the bread crumbs.  Do this one at a time, until every fillet is covered with bread crumbs.  Fry these fillets.  Set aside.

For the white sauce, I realize that it is the same recipe for my carbonara recipe, less the basil.  Simply saute garlic and onions in butter.  Use butter instead of oil, but you can use if you preferred to use that. Follow adding mushrooms, then heavy cream.  I used the 250 ml. Nestle All-Purpose cream for this recipe.  Add the basil after the cream.  Add a bit of water if you find the cream too thick.  Use salt and pepper to paste.  

You can add vegetables in this menu, simply blanched asparagus or broccoli florets.  Enjoy!

I am always interested in cooking shrimps in my kitchen, but I am a little hesitant about it because shrimps are really expensive seafood in our area. Guess I really have to make a budget for this, because this shrimp recipe is a must-try for me.

French Toast by Hubby

at

This has been a really late post but I still want to post it here because hubby’s cooking something in the kitchen and it rarely happens. Just like the saying ‘once in a blue moon’… ^_^

So, what did he cooked in our small kitchen? He’s been craving for a french toast that time, so as soon as he had the available ingredients: bread (with raisins), milk, butter, and eggs, he forgot the cinnamon powder, he went ahead and find the easiest ‘how to make a french toast’ direction he could find. I’m afraid I did not checked out that page he copied this recipe. 😉

Since this doesn’t happen too many times, I just let him be in the kitchen. I took some pictures of course, but I am more excited on the output of his little kitchen experiment.  Lols!

Surprised as I am, his first french toast is really yummy! I had to ask more slices of bread cause it tasted really good.

If he cooks like this a lot, I wouldn’t mind giving him the kitchen once a week, or twice a month, so I can have a little break in cooking.  I’ll let him be the chef once in a while.

Those toasts looks yummy, right? ^_^

I have been reading recipes, cooking and baking alike, and I always stumble with the word CHILL.  As curious as I am, I am wondering what does this word means in the cooking dictionary.  Let’s find out.

Definition: to place food into the refrigerator until it becomes cold.

Pronunciation: chill
Examples:

Before serving, place salad in the refrigerator to chill.

The definition given doesn’t seem to be clear.  When you say refrigerator, what part of this appliance will I put the food that needed to be chilled?  Is it supposed to be in the freezer or not?

I have found a couple of synonymous definitions on chill.

To cool food to below room temperature in the refrigerator or over ice. When recipes call for chilling foods, it should be done in the refrigerator.

A method of food preparation used by caterers, in which cooked dishes are chilled rapidly and reheated as required.

Seems to me I’ll just have to put it in the refrigerator and leave it there until cold.  ^_^
