I just realise that I haven't been posting a lot about preparing food with fish. Actually I have a very good fish curry recipe that I haven't posted here, i.e. Malaysian Fish Curry. I have eaten this fish curry few years ago on a plane flying to Jakarta. Since then I was searching to find the exact recipe but without success.
Until someday my hubby bought me "Wok Cooking Book" which has the recipe of this fish curry. When I tried to make it, it tasted exactly the same as I've eaten on that plane. You can imagine how happy and satisfied I was at that time. And since then this dish became our favorite fish dish, served with steamy rice... :p
