Steamed Sea-Cucumber

 Mamarazzi was blog hopping after long hiatus during Chinese New Year. Usually she would go to the latest post of each blog (except for 1 blog)...but some how her "magic nose" must have scent something delicious in Mommy Ling's blog which made her click the on "Previous Post".

What a bonus it was. Spotted one of Papa's favourite food there. Sea-cucumber. It seems that Mommy Ling's uncle steam the sea-cucumber instead of braise it or making soup with it.

Interesting way of cooking the sea-cucumber wor. She quickly shoot Mommy Ling a few questions and next  morning went to the nearby super-market to get some sea-cucumbers. Of course not those good grades ones la like what Mommy Ling's uncle bought.

She bought some cheap ones to experiment. Since it's cheap one....size also very tiny la. two bites finito.

Came home..stuffed them with minced meat (Pork+chopped Prawns+ grated Jicama) . Add some salt and pepper to the minced meat. Before steaming, she drizzled a bit of oyster sauce on top and cover the plate with clinging wrap.

 Yikes! surprising leh....how come so much water come out after steaming geh? Papa tasted the gravy and asked mamarazzi if she added sugar ah? Mamarazzi said no and tasted a bit herself. Uiks...really sweet wor. The gravy goes well with rice.

The steamed sea-cucumber taste pretty good leh. Not "lembik" or melted. It was rather "springy and chewy texture" as Mommy Ling said in her blog.

Yummy...this recipe is for keeps then. Thank you very much to Mommy Ling for introducing this lovely way of cooking sea cucumber.

I'll leave the sea-cucumber for Papa and Mamarazzi to enjoy la. Me....i am eyeing the fish...me crazy about fish lately.....

  31. Sea cucumber is one of the hot topic during CNY, but I'm never a fan despite hubby raving about it. Not sure why but maybe it's the thought of handling it that puts me off. Hahaha! Kudos to you for whipping up this CNY dish, Kathy! xoxo

    Haha! I saw it at her blog as well coz I was in Sibu during CNY so I didn't have a chance to eat it. Sea cucumbers getting more expensive now coz of the high demand in China. We get it more from PNG (Papua New Guinea) in Sarawak nowadays.
