Seafood Superior Pot 海鲜一品锅

Seafood Superior Pot_1

I have a new colleague whom is a young chap and someone who simply lives to eat. And because he’s just so full of ideas for food, every time when I am in a dilemma on what to eat, he can provide me with all sorts of suggestions. YES, even as a food blogger, I have my dilemma for food at times, in fact most of the times !! I think it’s precisely that as a food blogger, I always have 1001 ideas on what to cook or bake or what I wanna do, but I never really get down to doing it eventually coz I can’t make up my mind which one I should choose ?? So at the end of the day, I get so tired thinking that I would simply nua and NOT do anything at all ! LOL !! Ironic, isn’t it ?

So that day this new colleague of mine was suggesting a 一品锅. Can’t exactly remember what the conversation was about though, but the name of the dish rang a bell within me. Instead of a huge project like those 盆菜 that we had during CNY, I can always make do with a mini one with everyday ingredients. Plus the chilled weather for the entire day, the mood was just more than fantastic. So what’s better than a pot of warm and inviting Seafood Superior Pot to end the day with ?

The sweetness from the fresh seafood being cooked in a flavourful broth that’s fused with some abalone and oyster sauce and made complete with some green as spinach, made this a real delightful one pot dish ! Although the dish is termed as superior pot (一品锅), it doesn’t necessary mean that it has to be served in a very elaborate manner. To make it as homely as possible without losing the original intent, I used daily food ingredients that are easily available too so that you can tuck into this dish anytime even when it’s not a festive period !
