Benny told me Teochew H'er Muay (Fish Porridge) is just a good fish soup with fish slices pour over cooked rice and eaten with sliced chilli. As always with home cooked food, we tend to add a whole lot of other stuff. Here's my portion.

Serves 4 persons
Ingredients for soup
1kg fish bones(get any large fish bones from market)
1 inch old ginger
3 pcs of dried Sole fish(fried)
1 bunch coriander leaves and stalk
200g fried ikan billis(blend into powder)
2 litres water
salt to taste

Cooked rice

Method to cook soup
1. heat up pot with water and add ginger to boil.
2. Add fish bones and fried sole fish to cook. Turn the heat up till it boils.
3. Lower the heat and simmer, semi covered for 2 hours. If the water dries up, just add water to the pot.
4. Strain and sieve bones using sieve. Discard bones, heads.
5. Pour the stock over a coffee strainer bag to catch any small bones/scales from the stock.
6. Put it back to boil, add ikan bills powder, coriander leaves/stalks to cook.
7. Taste to ensure its salty, if not, add salt

Ingredients for Seafood
10 large Black Tiger Prawns
1 large squid(remove skin, ink sac, cut into rings)
10 to 20 pcs of fish ball(from market)
200g thread fin fish fillet, sliced thinly
green lettuce leaves, wash, drained

Method to cook and serve
1. Keep the soup boiling and add fish balls to cook.
2. Add prawns, squids to cook in the soup for 2 to 3 mins on high heat. Once its cooked, remove and set aside.
3. Place in a bowl, some lettuce leaves and pile cooked rice for 1 person, place a few slices of raw fish, prawns, squids and fish balls on top. Scoop hot soup and pour over the raw fish.
4. Serve hot with rice, sliced chilli on the side.
