Burger

Everybody loves their burger. This is my take on a home-made burger. It is simple and delicious, and makes for a nice comfort meal. This recipe has been inspired by a Japanese chef/blogger and I have modified his recipe a little bit. You may find his blog here:http://www.masa.tw/
The golden proportion of lean and fat meat that I have been told is 7:3. This ratio will result in the most perfect, juicy and succulent burger. I use lamb mince as the fat cut because it has a high fat content. You may also substitute it with another fat cut. I put a small piece of mozzarella cheese inside the burger to create a secret surprise when they are bitten into! I love cheese in almost any food! My choices of veggie toppings are just the classic: tomato, lettuce, onion, cheese and most importantly, a sunny sided up with a melted yolk on top of the burger! A melted yolk with a burger is absolutely divine!

Fillet of Fish in Sweet Corn Sauce

This is a very common dish in Chinese restaurants and my most ordered dish in Cha Chan Teng when I was in Hong Kong. The combination of sweet corn and fish is a perfect match. It is suitable for both adults and children as there is no bones in cod fillets. In fact, any white fish fillet is suitable to make this dish. It is super easy to make and taste exactly the same as what you get in the restaurants. I usually avoid cooking deep fried food at home. Not only it is not healthy, it is also a headache to deal with any leftover oil. This time I used a ‘semi-fried’ method using my newly bought cast iron pan, which is to use more oil than pan fry but less oil than deep fry. The result is very good. It is a very good alternative to deep fry.

Instructions
  1. Dry the cod fillet with kitchen towel. Cut it into small pieces and marinate with salt and pepper for 15 minutes.
  2. Use a blender to blend 2/3 of the corn into puree.
  3. Beat the egg in a bowl. Dip the cod into the egg to coat. Coat it with another layer of corn flour.
  4. Heat the oil into pan. The oil should be 1.5cm height. When oil becomes hot, gently put the cod into the hot oil. Cook for 2 minutes per side or until cooked. Transfer it onto a kitchen towel to remove any excess oil.
  5. Heat a small amount of oil in a pan, add the corn puree, corn in the pan and water. Season with salt and sugar. Cook it until boiling.
  6. Add the remaining beaten egg. Cook for further 1/2 minute.
