I realize it has been a while since I last showed you guys my awesome cooking prowess. Strangely, that has coincided with a slight drop in the daily page views that I get. So maybe I should rectify that today by showing you my dinner yesterday (and today as well).
This… is part of dinner.
This is basically two pollock fillets, marinated with turmeric powder and pepper for a night, and then baked together with eight sticks of okras with a generous drizzle of olive oil and the juice of one lemon. 180°C for 15 minutes and I’m all set.
All these to go with some rice. I have been eating rice for dinner more frequently lately. At first I thought two fillets of fish AND rice is too much food. But then, on further thoughts, the fillets are not that big to begin with, and one fillet is actually just one side, or half of the fish, so two fillets is actually one fish. And my mom is a huge advocate of me eating one whole fish for dinner when I go home. If mom thinks it is fine, then it is probably fine.
And I have upgraded again in terms of the rice I eat. From white rice to rainforest rice blend which is a blend of a three types of rice, I am now having 十谷米 ten grains rice. Technically, this isn’t even rice. In fact, rice is just a small part of this mixture of grains and seeds and beans and whatnot. Don’t ask me which ten grains is in this blend, I don’t know. I just grabbed one packet from the organic shop and there’s no labeling on the package.
Here, a closer look for you, in case you want to closely scrutinize each grain.
I hope my mom approves this meal. After all, she has always been telling me to “不要整天都肉肉肉肉肉！吃多一点鱼！“(Don’t eat meat meat meat meat meat all the time! Eat more fish!).
Think I’m gonna Whatsapp this photo to her…
