Going around different food blogs just fills my mind with ideas and visions of cooking possibilities. While some are too daunting, too complicated or outright impossible to attempt, there are some that seduce, beckon and set off my imagination to try and find ways to make things happen.

This beautiful dish that I came across thanks to Ning's Heart and Hearth however is among those that didn't put me to sleep until I was able to cook it and satisfy my tummy's desire.

Fish Fillet With Vietnamese Caramel Sauce
(Recipe from Heart and Hearth)
This dish was simple but really good! The flavors so clean and light they seem to energize the tastebuds with the natural essences of rich earth and tranquil sea.

I used cream dory and followed Ning's recipe as faithfully as I could. The only modification/tweak I made was the sprinkling of ground peanuts at the end.

It was so worth the effort (and it didn't even take a lot!)


Quirky Tag


Ning of Heart and Hearth tagged me to write 6 QUIRKY THINGS I DO. I thought to modify it a bit to 6 quirky things I do with food.

1. I love sili and take approximately 3 mins before I eat to pick the perfect 3 pcs of sili to slice into very tiny particles with my spoon which I eat with my food or mix with fish sauce and kalamansi.
2. I use my cellphone to store the recipes I cook. I am constantly typing in my innovations and modifications as I cook. The sad thing about it is that my old phone stopped working several months ago. All my old recipes were stored there.=(
3. I always have to order extra secret sauce for my Big Mac. I spread it on the underside of the top layer burger using french fries.
4.When I eat out alone, I'd rather eat in my car than in the restaurant. I just order the food , take it to the car and eat while parked. Somehow it feels homey in there.=)
5. I love cherry coke so much but can't find cherry syrup anywhere so I just put 7 whole cherries into a huge glass of coke when I watch DVDs at home.
6. I love, love Chowking's Naicha and just recently learned to ask for extra caramel syrup. Sweet!!!
