Dishes for Mother’s Day Celebration – Flounder Meat with Spring Onions and Baked Kam Heong Soft Pork Ribs


This morning, while at the wet market, I was wondering what to cook for my wife and family to celebrate mother’s day. Then I saw that my regular fishmonger has a few nice and fresh Flounder (Ikan Sebelah, Summer Flounder, Paralichthys Dentatus). I bought a medium size fish and asked him to fillet the fish for me. I thought of making the bones into a basket liked shape to hold the fish meat. Actually, I came across this technique from AFC Yan can cook show. Unfortunately, I broke one of the fish back bone, so my fish basket was a little out of shape. LOL! However, the bones are crispy and nice!

Flounder Meat with Spring Onions Recipe

Ingredients
Flounder, 600 gms, fillet meat and cut into cubes
Ginger, 1”x1”x1”, cut into slices
Spring onions, 1 plant, cut into one inch length
Onions, 1 pc, cut into four
Garlic, 3 pcs, chopped finely
Shao Shing Chiew (Chinese Cooking wine), 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Corn flour, 1 teaspoon and water mixture

Heat up wok and put in some vegetable oil. Put in the ginger, garlic and onions. Fry until the garlic turn golden brown. Add flounder fish meat and fry at medium heat until it is cooked. Add salt to taste and shao shing chiew. Put in the corn flour, spring onions and fry for a short while. Put the flounder fish meat on the deep fried flounder bones.

Baked Kam Heong Pork Soft Ribs Recipe
I had around 7 pieces of pork soft ribs in my fridge and since my wife loves kam heong sauce, I decided to roast it with my homemade kam heong sauce (Fragrant curry paste). First I fried the kam heong sauce and then put it on the ribs. Then I wrapped the ribs in aluminium foil and baked in oven at 200 Dec C for 1 hour. The soft ribs are very tender after being cooked in the oven and they are very juicy too! Happy Mother’s Day! Have a nice weekend with your family!
