Fried Stuffed Mackerel & Fishball Soup with Shitake Mushroom & Baby Sweetcorn

Sounds really grand huh!

After a long day out at the PC Fair at Persada JB & checking out the new AEON Bukit Indah near our home, it's just a simple dinner for us. Actually this time it's my wife's turn to cook.

Fried Stuffed Mackerel 

A few fresh mackerels (Cencaru)
Gutted & cleaned. 
Slice top of fish to make a pocket for stuffing.
Season fish with salt & turmeric powder.

Red chillies
Shrimp paste (belacan)
Tamarind paste
Grated coconut
a bit of sugar

Blend all these ingredients.
Stuff 'em inside the mackerel top & bottom.
Marinate for 1/2 hour.
Fry in hot oil in deep pan.

Fishball Soup


Dried anchovies (ikan bilis) or dried shrimp (udang kering)
Chicken stock cube
Grind all the ingredients
Stirfry in pot
Add water. Simmer.
You can add whatever you want in the soup depending on your selera.
Fishball or meat 
Any vegies, mushroom, tofu, quail eggs, dried tofu (tahu kering) 
Salt to taste.

Simple but a labour of LOVE!

BTW, AEON Jusco Bukit Indah just opened a few days ago. It's just a few minutes...heh Actually can walk bcoz we could hear the tone before any announcement made there. Soooooo...... close. It's supposed to be the largest in the South East Asia and eco-friendly. It boasts a range of "makan" places on every floor along "Restaurant Alley" from PizzaHut, KFC, BBQ Chicken, Kenny Roger's, Nandos, Johnny's, Balck Canyon, Oldtown, Baskin Robbbin, Sizzling, Big Apple Donut and the list go on and on and on.
However, it lacks entertainment facilities which could have attracted more people (cinema & bowling alley are must-haves in any shopping mall). 
Maybe I will set up a bowling alley SOON! 
Or maybe a food franchise ALSO!

For those who don't know where Bukit Indah JB is...this is the best map I could google!
