Healthy Oven Bake Fish

I bought a few fish from the market and decided to use the same recipe that I published weeks ago - 2 ingredients. If you are not a meat lover, use the same ingredients with different formula as below. The recipe turns out a good dish as well.

600 g (1 lb 5 oz) fish (mackerel, yellow tail fish or any fish fillet) 
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Clean and scale the fish and make 2 slashes in in the middle of the fish (if using whole fish). Season the fish with salt and turmeric powder and oil for 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 200⁰C.
Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil (to make it easy to clean). Bake the fish for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.

Enjoy your fish and happy cooking!

Note: In the original Asian cooking, we use deep fry method.

Garlic- How to peel garlic in few seconds.

One of the most important ingredients that I use in Asian cooking is garlic. I mean raw garlic. Garlic has its pungent flavour, spicy that mellows and sweetens considerably with cooking. Besides, it is not just for culinary use but also extensively used in medicine.

Here, I am going to share with you my simple and quick technique to peel the garlic in just a few seconds. Firstly, pick one of the garlic cloves from the bulb. Put it on a chopping board, cut off the root end, place the flat side of the knife on top of the garlic clove holding the knife handle firmly and use another hand (hand palm) to smack the knife to crush the clove. The skin will easily break and makes it easier to peel.
Enjoy your cooking!

How do you like your Pho? I love to have it with beef bone (I love the juice of the bone) and extra paddy mints.
