Grilled Fish Stuffed With Sambal

Grilling whole fish and stuffed with sambal paste is very popular in Malaysia. They are great with some steamed rice and perhaps a couple of stir-fried vegetables to complete the meal. For this recipe, I used Tai Snapper; some other good options are Hardtail or mackerel fish. The fish can be pan-fried directly in some oil, or in the banana leaves. I chose the latter because I like the lovely aroma from the banana leaf.

Mango Salsa

The weather was sunny in Vancouver the past few days, so, I managed to do some outdoor grilling. It was great! I made some mango salsa to go with my grilled prawns. The salsa is sweet and a little bit tangy. It complement very well with the lightly seasoned prawns. Do try my mango salsa recipe. *This is an updated post with a video cooking guide.

Baked Coconut Buns

One of my favorite treats from childhood! I had decided to recreate these coconut buns with that familiar Malaysian hometown taste that I had experienced when I was younger. Both recipes, for the buns and the coconut filling, can be found on my blog! These coconut buns are perfect on its own, whether for breakfast or even as a light snack! Watch this video to learn how to combine the two recipes together, and I hope you guys enjoy it as much I do! :)

Muah Chee (Glutinous Rice Snack With Peanut & Sugar)

Muah Chee or Glutinous Rice Snack With Peanut & Sugar is a popular Chinese snack. The traditional method for this recipe is to steam the rice flour batter and then kneading them until you have an elastic dough. I have done that several times in the past, but I found a better method from ZaTaYa Zong Han Yummy YouTube channel . All you have to do is mix all the ingredients in a non-stick pan, cook, stir, and knead with a sturdy rubber spatula. That's all there is to it, remember to check out my video and see how I make them.

Grilled Chili Lime Crabs

Dungeness crabs are aplenty and are well priced over here in Vancouver now. I bought 2 large size crabs for this fantastic Grilled Chili Lime Crabs recipe. I had the crabs prep by the fishmonger to save time. Back at home, I simply coated the crabs lightly with some peanut oil and off they went to the hot grill. Then, the crabs were taken off the grill, tossed with some chili lime dressing, and placed back on the grill until they are thoroughly cooked. Easy and delicious! *This is an updated post with a video tutorial guide.
