Homemade Salmon and Potato Patties

pattie1

Love cooking, love my grocer-ing. Even though I love eating out so much and having constant food reviews, I always make sure that I do some cooking once awhile at home. Dishing out food at your private time can be such a blessing and defintely a peace theraphy. Cooking can be as good as conducting meditation. So this time I managed to recycle the left-overs in my fridge, the pan fried salmon and also the potatoes tucked quietly at the corner of the fridge. I decided to have something simple and tasty, making patties. Mashed them up, balled them up, flatten them and gave them a slow pan fried till golden brown.

"Mat Lat" Parrot Fish

My blogging friends, especially Beachlover had been exploring ready make ingredients that come in pack form especially those made in Malaysia. So when I was looking through my unpublished post, I found this one. “Mah Lat” Parrot Fish. This dish had also been posted by my fellow dedicated floggers and great friends, Teckiee and Jacksonkah. “Mat Lat” is a famous szechuan dish in China which ultilise szechuan pepper corn and loads of chillies. Here today I am going to included the details:



There is a lot of variety of ready made “Mat Lat” paste but I use the about one. It taste as usual hot, hot and also comes with a hint of mutton taste.


Here I used a whole Parrot fish. To make a great whole fish, I deep the whole fish in a pool of oil at low temperature. “Yau Jum Yee” is a good cooking technique of cooking fish. Once the fish is golden brown in colour, your fish is cooked and ready.


Next is to make the “Mah Lat” sauce, pan fry some garlic and dried chillies in hot oil, put 1-2 tablespoon of “Mat Lat” paste then add some stock. Add seasoning to your liking. If you like hot, hot then add more of the “Mat Lat” paste. I prefer it to be a bit mild so that can taste the freshness of the fish.

Hope you can find this “Mat Lat” paste. I have a few packet of this “Mat Lat” paste left in my kitchen, if you like a packet of this, do let me know by emailing to bigboysoven@gmail.com which stock last.

Hope you can find this paste and try this dish… one word to describe… lovely.
