Ingredients:
700 gm chicken (cut into bitesize pieces)
50 gm salted fish cut into small pieces (I did not measure but just use the amt I want)
5 dried chillies (soaked for a while in hot water to soften)
3 slices of ginger
1 onion cut into wedges
2 stalks of spring onions (cut into sections)
1 tbsp chinese cooking wines (I used hua tiao jiu)
100 ml water (I used abt 120 ml)

Seasoning:
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp dark soy sauce

Methods:
1. Heat up abt 2 tbsp of oil in a wok and saute ginger slices, dried chillies and salted fish pieces until fragrant.
2. Add in onion and chicken and stir-fry until aromatic. Pour in water and seasoning. Bring to a boil then covered, lower the heat and simmer for abt 3 mins.
3. Heat up the claypot, stir-fry the spring onion with 1 tbsp hot oil. Transfer the simmered chicken and gravy into the claypot. Splash in chinese cooking wine and bring back to boil.
4. Dish up and serve hot. Garnish with some spring onion before serving.

Note: I did not dish it up but just serve directly from the claypot.

Nope, he hates my durians, live crabs and lobsters too :lol: :lol: :lol: on days like these, I serve him his dinner in the formal dining room away from us...MUAHAHAHA. Depedning on what type of food, my kid joins him there too.. I had to fry the salted fish outside in summer and the garage in winter with the doors wide open and lots of air freshener.

Tell me , you have your hubby trained on salted fish Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

We are going off topic here coffee . Hubby ate salted fish and sambal belacan (and liked it :roll: ) before he found out about the smell during cooking, but he is used to it now. One of the reason why he likes noodles so much is that he can eat his sambal belacan Smile. He tried durian but don't know why we go mad over it, tho' he didn't mind the smell.

Cecily, I bought the white ngoh fish fillet salted fish from the market at Elias Mall. One small pkt (abt 50 gm) cost $1.80 and it is very fresh and a little wet. Not the dry dry type.

No need to soak for hours. Just give it a quick rinse. Dry it and use as per recipe.
