Home-made Fish & Wedges for Lunch

Today is our santai day. Altho we had roti-canai for breakfast this morning but i decided that we eat some lite home-made food today. Fish & Chips but with potato wedges & salad.

Tis is an easy recipe, from the "Better Homes and Gardens - New Cook Book". All you need for your fish batter are :-

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup beer or milk (in tis case, surely lah i use milk)

Thaw fish, rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Cut fish into 2 or 3 serving-size pieces. In the recipe book didn't say this but i marinate the fish with salt and pepper before dipping the fish in the batter (you can do the same). For fish batter, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add beer or milk, beat till smooth. Dip fish into batter. Fry fish in hot oil, one or two peices at a time, about 2 minutes on each side or till golden brown.

Before the frying d fish, i made my own salad. I chopped some tomatoes, big-onions, some almond slices which i saute (without oil) and some greens and in this case i use 'Romaine' salad (which i took out its core). Place all of it in a salad bowl and mix it together with mayonaise which i mix with a little bit of tomato-sauce. Toss lightly to mix and sprinkle the almond. Simple to make.

Afterwards, i made some potato wedges (please use imported one cos imported potatoes taste much better). I mix it with rice-flour, curry powder and salt. Mix together and fry. Topped it with mayo.....sedap...

This is our simple meal for lunch today. Alhamdulilah, bee said good (a few times)!! Bukan senang nak dapat 'compliments' from him especially about i'm good today...heh...heh...heh...

Tonite i'm meeting my parents & bro/wife at KJ. Hmm...wonder wats...cookin?!!
