Oh no..Not Fish again

For dinner tonight, I was planning to go all light (as much as I can) because I had a spicy main dish (in malay called “Asam Pedas”), nope I have yet to master any real malay homecooked food so this was definitely cooked by someone else.
As always, I rummaged through my fridge and this is what I managed to find…Vegetables..loads and loads of them…
There were varieties like carrots, spinach, long beans, cabbage, potato, broccoli just to name a few. Wow, when did I have a supermarket in my fridge (I thought that was funny). I also had my marinated fish which I can just fry it on its own.

Marinated with turmeric powder & salt

While I was thinking what to prepare, I recalled that my Dad recently mentioned that he had gout (I will write a post about this another time), so he chose to stay away from certain food like eggs, beans-related product, not too salty food as well as MSG.
In the end, I went with cabbage and carrot and the fish. Can you just see how beautiful the carrots are? The colours are so cheery and bright and so RICH…yes that was what I thought when I was cutting them.
Carrots known to have the food chemical caretenoids, a form of antioxidant which is good for our body and also the old age belief of good for our eyes….I was definitely not holding back on the portions tho…

The cabbage, a head of wonder and goodness. I picked up some fun facts about the cabbage from: http://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/vegetable/health-benefits-of-cabbage.html. These are the few which I took as interesting and would want to share with all of you:
– It has an abundance of Vitamin C
– It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which means they block the free radicals from doing damage inside your body.
– Good source of roughage (simply mean it will make you poot poot easier :P)
-It is a good source of Vitamin K, and known to be powerful food for the brain.
You can read the rest at the link I shared above.

My artpiece of the fried fish, comes out gorgeously browned and nice. I love the tail part of the pomfret, in fact I dislike eating fish head unless its those fish head curry where fish is huge…small fish head has a lot of fine bones which I choked on sometimes…accidentally…:(
There you have it another simple recipe, a 2 dish meal prepared by yours sincerely (+1 not prepared by me for this dinner)
Peace,
zsiti
