Hoola ! I am so so in loved with simple home-cooked meals of one plate and one pot dishes recently that I have been doing it almost on an everyday basis !! Because the time after work is already so limited for cooking much say the cleaning up aftermath, such one dishes meal certainly take off from me pretty well. And because the cleaning up thereafter is such a breeze, I can also spend more time on being a couch potato and indulging in my dramas after the meal ! LOL.
Well, most of us I supposed are just so brain dead after work. Hence, the best luxury we could afford is to be a “Garfield” and couch as long as we could !!
I usually stocked up quite a fair bit of salmon slabs as it’s the best and easiest dish that anyone can beef up anytime. A simple dash of sea salt and freshly grind black pepper is all good to send it for cooking and be prep for a neat and nice salmon dish henceforth. But every time grilled, steamed or baked salmon also can be a bit sian, isn’t it ? Especially salmon is only one dish by itself, and we would still need to prepare for some other side dishes to complement it.
So by working along that line, I had this Salmon cubes with Tofu and Shimeij mushrooms, a simple stir fried that combines the fish, tofu, mushrooms and some greens all in one dish ! And serving it with a plain congee is all good enough to get it going. No other side dishes required to be prepared as you can find everything deliciously combined all in this one plate dish !
Enjoy !! And hope everyone has an awesome week ahead !! 加油 !!
