When my husband told me that his parents were going to stay with us during their summer break (they work in Saudi Arabia), I was a little worried about one thing - cooking for them! I have never cooked for anyone else besides my husband and kids; not even my parents, so imagine my worry. Will they like my cooking? What if it's tasteless, or too salty? I rarely cook rice and lauk-pauk
for my family, what am I going to cook for them?!
But I was relieved when my husband told me that his parents wanted to eat healthily and cut down their rice and sugar intake. That means I can cook like I normally do!
Baked/grilled chicken, fish or beef with veggies. Baking and grilling are not only healthier cooking methods, they are also easy! Basically, you just need to marinate the chicken/fish/beef with a few ingredients and then bake or grill it.
Here's Grilled Fish with Thai Chili Sauce
recipe which is SO easy to make and not to mention, healthy.
2 pieces canned pineapple rings, chopped
1 stalk spring onion, sliced
1 tomato, chopped
2 red chillies, de-seeded and chopped (if you like it spicy, add cili padi
1 onion, chopped
1 stalk coriander leaves, chopped
3/4 cup MAGGI Thai Chilli Sauce
500g red snapper fish fillet
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp MAGGI Oyster Sauce
- Combine ingredient A in a medium bowl.
- Refrigerate it for at least 1 hour, or over night. The longer you refrigerate, the tastier it will be.
- Marinate the fish fillets with MAGGI Oyster Sauce and lime juice for 10 minutes. (Be sure not to marinate fish for too long, otherwise it will start to stink)
- Grease the grill pan. Grill the fish on both sides until they turn brown.
- Place the fish on a serving plate. Then pour mixture A onto the grilled fish.
- It's now ready to eat!
I like how flavourful it tastes - sweet and sour. This dish can be eaten on its own or served with rice. Perfect for the whole family!
