My favourite fast & simple fish soup when am lazy to cook complicated dish! ^-^ Sometimes I will also use salmon fish head in this recipe also. Do you know that when added miso into the soup, you are not allow to over boil it or else it will lose is flavor?? So to prevent over cooking the miso soup, simply add a few scoop of hot water/soup into the paste, dissolve it then add into the pot. Follow then give it a quick stir to blend it well then turn off heat...
600gm seabass, cut in 1/2
1 block silken tofu, cubed
2 stalk spring onions, sliced + extra for garnish
2 slices ginger
3 tbsp miso pasta
Add 4 cups of water, spring onion & ginger. Bring to boil for 3mins. Add fish and simmer for 10mins.
Scoop a few tbsp of the soup into miso paste and mix well to dissolve. Pour into the pot and mix evenly. Turn off heat. Garnish with some spring onion and serve.
Awfully wonderful Korean dishes for today's lunch! All is homemade except the kimchi is store bought ^o*, hopefully got time to go get the ingredients for making kimchi. I really loves kimchi, can just eat a whole lot just with plain rice!! My kids loves the tofu patties to bits! The rest all too spicy for them which I did not serve it to them :)
^-* think this is the only sweet bakes I did for June holidays! too occupied with kids when they are on school holidays and also blamed the scorching weather >.< no mood to stay in the kitchen for long, rather spend more time lazying and playing with my kids...
While preparing this scones, I also need to fast hand fast leg mix up the batter, roll them up, cut them up and quickly pop them in the oven, worrying that these delicate scones will melt in my hands hahaha...
Wonderful fluffy scones which my boy cannot stop asking for more!! Taste heavenly with dollop of butter spread & my homemade strawberry jam!!
A light & tasty chowder, not overly creamy which my hubby gives thumbs up :) Initially am afraid the fish stock and clam broth will be very fishy as my hubby hates fishy smell! Luckily it turns out well and everyone enjoy this pot of wholesome & filling soup for lunch :)

Ingredients for Fish Stock
Homemade Fish Stock
2 tbsp olive oil
2 medium onions, chopped
1.5kg fish bones, heads (use white fleshed fish, darker fleshed e.g. salmon will make stock greasy)
10 black pepper
1 bouquet garni (I use fresh thyme, parsley & dried bay leaves)
Heat oil in a pot, add onions and cook on low heat for 8mins until soft.
Add in water, fish bones, pepper & herbs. Bring to boil.
Lower heat and simmer, uncovered, for 25mins, frequently skimming any froth from the surface.
Cool stock slightly and strain away ingredients. Cool and chill in fridge or use immediately.
hmmm actually not sure what to prepare for tonight's dinner >.<, then thought of plenty of greens and some cold rice and cheeses in fridge, suddenly gave me an idea what to prepare!! ^o^ hehehe what a good way to clear some balanced ingredients and makes more way for some fresh ones!

A impromptu dish I come up with after thinking what to do with some remaining zucchini, mozzarella cheese & roasted tomato sauce ^-* Last night after our dinner at Serangoon Nex, I popped by NTUC and got 6 XL tiger prawns...fussy hubby dun get to eat this as he dislike prawns!! so this is Me & my son dish hehehe....loves the juicy zucchini and succulent prawn, goes so well with a bed of roasted tomato sauce! slurp!!
The kids were excited when they saw their meals : 'Angry Bird Pizza' my boy shouted ^-^ and my gal pointed to the pizza exclaiming 'angry bird angry bird'! To save time, I used Betty Crocks Pizza Mix to make the base and top with my homemade roasted tomato sauce, embedded with mozzarella, ham, pineapples & mushroom, served with Minestrone.
