Nikko Hotel Dim Sum Class with Chef Lo Tian Sion

Sunny Fish Ball
Throwing The Fish Paste

Next was the fish ball making session. It was truly an eye opener for myself as only now I realised that two different meat are being used to make the paste, mackeral fish and cuttlefish. Cuttlefish was used in this recipe was to create a bouncy lovely texture. It was very educational, yet another secret was told, water was added into the paste before mixing it as to create a softer texture, if not the fish ball will be very hard. Interesting. Excited too!

    so cool lah! all of u know how to make dimsum now. so i can get free coaching from u all right? :p

    This is the best way to make dim sum — with a crowd of people. I’ve had friends host dim sum-making parties, and they are the best time ever. You get people in groups, with each one making a different dumpling. In no time, you have a ton of them, ready for cooking and enjoying.
