Mackerel Protein Bowl

Besides lean fish such as tilapia, barramundi, snapper, trout, we also love oily (high in omega-3) fishes such as salmon, sardines, milkfish and mackerel.

Our family usually fall back on easy and fuss-free preparation methods e.g. en-papillote, oven-roast/grill when enjoying these fishes.

Oven-Roasted/Grilled Mackerel is so delicious, and super easy to prepare. They make protein bowls such pleasurable treats.

Budget Chuck Roast Beef Salad

Same same but different. This beef salad is similar to Roast Beef Steak Salad Bowl just using different cut of meat. Same same but different. With the same chuck roast, let's change up the vegetables, so still worthy to be a Budget-Friendly Beef Salad.

Duck with Kumquat, Steamed Broccoli, Cauliflower

Our family enjoy duck dishes but we do not have it often since duck is almost like a "luxury" menu item on the dinner table as it is not easily available in the regular grocery stores or supermarkets. Thankfully, there is ready-cooked vacuum-packed roast duck and we will stash a few packs in the freezer whenever it is on sale; then prepare them as special menu item during festive occasions such as Christmas, New Year or Lunar New Year.

Not only they are better quality than those Cantonese-style roast found in most of the Chinese deli here, these ready-cooked vacuum-packed roast duck also makes meal prep a breeze when it comes to preparing duck dishes such as this Lunar New Year special menu item Roast Duck with Kumquat, Steamed Broccoli and Cauliflower.

Kumquat 金吉 literally meaning "golden luck" symbolizes prosperity and good fortune, aligning with auspiciousness for Lunar New Year.
