Bear Naked Food Chinese Fried Fish Soup

Chinese Fried Fish Soup

Chinese Sliced Fish Soup is a staple dish found in every hawker centre in Singapore. It is believed to have originated from the Teochews. Today’s Chinese Fried Fish Soup is another version where chunk of fish head bones and sliced fish are battered lightly with corn flour and flash fried into golden crispy chunks. While it is important to use fresh fish when making fish soup, the soul of this dish I believe, is in its luscious and rich broth. To achieve that signature ‘milky’ soup base, the trick is to keep boiling the broth over high heat for 10 to 15 mins to release the collagen and essence from the fish bones.

Flower Clams in Garlic Butter Sauce

Clam is one of my all-time favorite bivalve molluscs. The good ones are super briny and reminds me of the ocean. Preparing and cooking fresh live clams are actually not daunting at all. I’ve actually shared a post on how to clean out bits of sand often found in the clams. The last thing I want when I’m enjoying my clams is to bite on gritty sand with my teeth.
