I’m using beer cooler & ziplock bag for my sousvideurried salmon fillet, just like my previously Sous Vide Eel Fillet Recipe and Sous Vide Salmon Fillet Stuffed with Tofu Curd Recipe. Instead of beer cooler, any kind of heat insulating chamber is good to go for sous vide fish fillet; thermos, dewar flask or vacuum flask, as long the chamber is big enought to completely submerging the entire salmon fish fillet and also mantaining the waterbath temperature for extended periods of time.

Sous Vide Salmon Fillet Saffron Curry

Sous-vide is French term for “under vacuum”, a method of cooking food sealed in airtight plastic bags in a water bathor in a temperature-controlled steam environment for longer than normal cooking times for up to 96 hours, in some cases; at an accurately regulated temperature much lower than normally used for cooking, typically around 40°C (104 F) t0 45°C (113 F) for fish,  50°C (131 F) to 60°C (140 F) for meats and higher for vegetables.

Curried Salmon Fillet Sous Vide with Saffron & Spicy Vegetables Curry

Sous vide salmon curry or other fish fillet with beer cooler is a very simple; simply fill up your beer cooler with water just a couple degrees higher than the temperature you’d like to cook your food at (to account for temperature loss when you add cold food to it), seal your food in a plastic ziplock bag, drop it into the beer cooler waterbath, and close your beer cooler until your food is cooked. You can simply adjust the temperature to your preference with hot water after the waterbath temperature drop about (1-2)°C after 20 minutes soaking your salmon fillet, that’s why it’s better you use a good insulating beer cooler. Yup, it is that simple!!!

The best ingredients for low temperature sous vide salmon is sashimi grade salmon or vaccumed packed and flash frozen salmon fillet because the low temperature waterbath (40-50C) in sous vide method won’t killed all kind bacteria spores or parasit, especially this salmon fillet served in mi cuit or french style half cooked, so i suggest this low temparature salmon sous vide should never be served to immune compromised individuals like baby, elderly or pregnant woman. like i mention before, low temperature cooked salmon need prolonged period of cooking, so it won’t reach the savety zone without compromising the texture into mushy mess.

Barely Cooked Salmon Saffron Curry “mi cuit” or “half cooked” in French

The salmon fish fillet saffron curry cooked in 45°Celcius beer cooler waterbath for 45 to 60 minutes maximum until it mi cuit or French style “half cooked” salmon with succulent, tender and a little bit flaky. Loot at the color of the saffron curry marinated salmon fillet above, it’s moist, orange and barely cooked. The sous vide method retains the salmon fillet vibrant orange color, its briny juices, and produces a soft texture and nothing like tough, dry, greyish, and flaky fish in agressive high heat traditional cooking.

Never cooked the salmon fillet in sous vide low temperature waterbath more than 60 minutes because it will compromised the salmon texture into mushy and losen it’s succulent texture. The maximum temperature for cooking salmon in sous vide is about 55°C because higher temperature will be contract and expelled the water content within the fish flesh and made the salmon become dry and too flaky.

Crispy & Crackling Pan Fried Salmon Skin

I fried the salmon skin until crispy and crackling. To make a stunning presentation of straight fried crispy salmon skin is easy, first you should have a scalled salmon skin and a non stick fry pan. Heat a little bit avocado oil on non sticky pan than seared the scale side down of the salmon skin, just before the salmon skin wringkled, i put some flat heavy goods (porcelain ramekin, small caseroll, etc) over the salmon skin to press the skin down and prevent it wringkled. Let the salmon skin pan fried slowly until crispy with a very gentle heat. Don’t forget to spray some oil too on the surface of the heavy thing you put over the salmon skin to prevent the skin sticking. Once the salmon skin scales side is crispy, you need to flip it out and finish to crisp up the other side.

recipe xo sauce lee kum kee dried scallops shrimp chili roe

XO Sauce (Lee Kum Kee Brand)

XO sauce is a savoury bomb that burst into umami flavour once you put it in your mouth, that’s the correct definition for my taste buds. Chinese XO sauce made of  several premium dried seafoods, including dried scallops or conpoy, dried fish and shrimp, sometimes crab and shrimp roe, Chinese ham/Jinhua ham, and abalone that rehydrated, shredded and then fried and mixed into XO Sauce. The roughly chopped rehydrated dried seafood then cooked slowly with chili peppers, onions, and garlic then  cognag or other old liquor added, this is what XO (extra old) Sauce name comes from. I’m using Lee Kum Kee Brand XO Sauce for this recipe, it’s savoury enought even without any Iham at all (it’s also Halal). Lee Kum Kee penetrated Indonesia with their halal version sauces and condiments because the Indonesian majority population is moslem. I love using XO Sauce as a condiment or as a flavouring agent, i recently made my own and  hopefully i can share it a.s.a.p.

Steamed live grouper fish with XO Sauce is simply what you’ve served if you want to impressed your future mother in law if you want to married your Chinese descent boyfriend. Simple steaming fish technique is highly appreciated in mostly Asian, especially Chinese descent, but not for Bataknese people like my family tree. Batak people used to spiced up any dish, so light seasoning that present the natural sweetness flavour of the fish such as Hongkong Style Steamed Live Humpback Mouse Grouper that probably cost you a lot of money won’t impress any batak mother in law.  Batak people apreciate the freshness of seafood, we used to pickled fish called Naniura or Spicy Pickled Raw Grass Carp Fish, and again it’s spiced up with with lots of spicy chili and andaliman pepper. My bataknese descent mother used to steamed fish lately due to health issue concern, mostly spicy Thai Style Steamed Whole Fish  Recipe that suits with my family licking that adore spicy food.

This fish is highly regarded as a fancy dinner menu and usually cooked once it alive prior to served in the table, the price is dropped once it dead and this is why live grouper fish usually displayed in the aquarium window infront of the high end Chinese restaurant. My grouper was tagged about 42 USD/kg once it alive in Grand Lucky Supermarket, Jakarta, called me a lucky bastard; i got this lil grouper with only 7 USD/Kg tag because the fish section staff told me that this fish is just dead or  about 3 hours before i got there, just a great deal very-very fresh grouper fish for steaming.

Steamed fish diet it’s a part of a healthy living. Steaming food preserved it’s natural taste and most of it’s nutrients  withoud adding enormous ammount of unnecessary calories. Don’t you know that deep frying fish can triple it’s calories??? Don’t be shock that deep fried fish infact left only half amount of it’s proteins and vitamins due to high heating that can reach about 180C compare to 100 C of steaming process.

Delicious Steamed Fish with XO Sauce, Can’t Stop Diggin!!!

Delicious steamed whole fish requires freshness as the key to avoid any fishy and muddy aromas. First, you should choose the freshly catch fish or live fish that swimming in the tank is preferred. Rub and also brush throughly the fish upper cavity ribs area, below the fish back bone, there’s a blackish dark red organ which is actually the fish kidney that should be fully removed or your steamed fish gonna be muddy and fishy. Some people like to steamed the fish twice; first, the fish was steamed until half done, and then the dripping liquid is discarded, after that  the rest of the ingredients added and the fish is steamed until done. I’ve never discard the liquid once i handle a live fish or a very-very fresh ones (except freshwater fish) because discarding the dripping liquid means discarded the nutritional juices from the fish, and i think it’s such  a waste, that’s why i simply place the chopped fresh chillies, garlic, Homemade Chinese Sausage/La Chang and XO Sauce over the fish and steam it directly until done

Store Brought and Ready to Eat Kimchi

I’m using a store brought and ready to eat kimchi, you can find it in the chiller area in the Asian-Korean food section in the supermarket nearby. I guess iy’s better if you have guts to try to made kimchi from scratch. I’m lucky enought to had this “fresh” kimchi, the veggis is crisp, the seaoning is spicy enought but a little bit too sour for my licking, glad that i had to enjoy the kimchi within the salmon head broth. This kimchi had napa cabbage, radish,  and scallion on it, so you can replace it with the fresh ones if you can’t found ready to eat kimchi.

Easy and Quicky Maeuntang Soup-sort off

Mae-un tang is Korean  hot and  spicy  fish and vegetables soup, seasoned with with gochujang (Korean red chili pepper paste), gochugaru (chili powder). Maeuntang derived from maeun or maepda (맵다), meaning “hot and spicy”; and tang, meaning “soup”. Maeuntang usually using whole  fresh or saltwater fish is cut into several pieces and boiled with green vegetables such as watercress and garland chrysanthemum. Onion, radish, chilis, crown daisy, garlic, and sometimes zucchini and bean curd are added to the mixture to absorb the chili pepper paste which is the main flavoring of this dish.

Maeuntang garnished with shilgochu (Korean chili threads)

I had a new culinary crush now, shilgochu  or Korean chili threads. Shilgochu made everything fancy, looks the vibrantly dark red bright garnish over my spicy and hot salmon kimch soup. Shilgochu is not all about garnish, it’s  fruity, sweet, and mildly spicy make a  delicious garnish on Asian dishes.  One of our favorite spices, we always keep a jar on our kitchen counter to simply add a few threads on top of noodle and rice dishes, so check it in any Asian-Korean supermarket nearby you !

Sakana Ochazuke Recipe, Green Tea Broth with Rice and Miso Marinated Grilled Fish Fillet)

ochazuke recipe fish over rice with green tea broth matcha konbu dashi bonito stock

Sakana Ochazuke (Green Tea Broth with Rice and Miso Marinated Grilled Fish)

Sakana Ochazuke Recipe. Ochazuke () or sometimes caled  chazuke  (, ちゃづけ) is a quicky Japanese dish consist of rice and savoury topping and then poured with green tea, broth/stock (dashi), or boiling hot water. The amount of green tea broth and rice ratio is similiar with milk for breakfast cereal. I guess ochazuke resembles of hard work ethic of Japanese people who want to finish their lunch or breakfast  meal as quick as possible and they could came back to work, as you know; liquid simplified our swallowing process.

recipe sakana ochasuke japanese rice tea with grouper fish topping nori

Recipe Sakana Ochazuke (Red Rice with Miso Marinated Grilled Fish FIillet & Green Tea Broth)

Japanese Sakana Ochazuke derived from sakana means fish, while ocha is tea and  tsuke for submerged in English.  Sakana Ochazuke means rice with  tea broth and savoury  fish topping, since i’m using matcha or green tea, i guess this dish can be called Sakana Matchazuke Recipe. Okey then, what the heck with the the names, common savoury toppings used for ochazuke is nori (seaweed), furikake (seasoned fish floss), sesame seeds, tarako (salted fish roe), salted salmon, Tea Smoked Salmon,  scallions and assorted fish cakes or any processed seafood. Beside that, tangy pickled such as tsukemono (pickled vegetables), and umeboshi (pickled sour plum) commonly used too.

sakana ochazuke recipe japanese tea rice fish

Red Rice, Topped with Miso Marinated Fish Fillet, Nori, Scallion, Edamame and Served with Green Tea Dashi

Never judge the book by it’s cover, i learned my lesson once i had my first chazuke back  in the early of new millenium. I was in the junior high school when my friend celebrated his birthday in a Japanese restaurant in Palembang. The description of ochazuke within the menu sound a little bit bizzare for my Indonesian mindset; miso glazed grilled salmon over rice and served with light green tea broth. Since i had no idea what i’m gonna ordered, i just replied idem once my friend order the salmon ochazuke. Eversince i eat my first salmon ochazuke, it’s become one of my favourite japanese dish. Unfortunately, none of the Japanese restaurant in Palembang had this menu today. My last ochazuke was about 2 years ago during my visit to Jakarta and i’m intruguing to made  it once i read the the Unagi Chazuke Recipe from Justonecookbook.Com.

Sakana Ochazuke recipe with Miso Marinated Grilled Giant Grouper Fish and Green tea Broth

Japanese Ochazuke recipe is a very clever and flexible,  i mean beside ochazuke is made as quick as you snapping your finger, you can use any kind of your preference topping too.  You can even use any leftover rice in your fridge, which is quite not comforting to eat instead of eaten as Nasi Bakar Recipe (Grilled Rice) or Nasi Goreng Recipe (Fried Rice). Eversince i’m on low calories and high fibers diet, i choose red rice instead of white rice to increased my daily fibers intake. For my ochazuke main topping,  i made miso marinated grilled fish which is similiar with my previously Pan Seared Grouper Fish Fillet Recipe, but i marinated it first with miso or fermented soybean paste before i pan grilled it.  Beside,  i served my ochazuke with edamame (soybean), thinly sliced scallion and crispy roasted nori (seasoned seaweed).

ochazuke recipe green tea broth dashi katsuobushi konbu shiitake mushrooms

Green Tea Broth (Matcha Dashi) Ingredients: Matcha (Green Tea), Katsuobushi (Smoked Fish Flakes), Dried Shiitake Mushrooms, Kombu (Salted Seaweed)

Best Japanese ochazuke recipe determined by the tea or the broth for dredging the rice. My friend told me that the best tea for ochazuke is the roasted green tea leaves that packed with roasted rice. Since i can’t found any of that kind of green tea here in Palembang, i’m using powdered Korean matcha or green tea, but you can use any kind of your favourite flavoured tea too. Instead using green tea only, i made my ochazuke special with serving it with my homemade green tea flavoured dashi. Dashi is Japanese broth that contains katsuobushi (smoked skipjack fish flakes), kombu or konbu (salted seaweed) and dried shiitake mushrooms. All the ingredients is chopped, mixed with water and simmerred for hours to extract all the flavour. I guess my green tea dashi broth needed no sort of cubed bouillon stock or addictive flavour because it’s super umami naturally. The pleasant bitterness of matcha or green tea blended well with the savoury hint of basic Japanese dashi stock.

Samgyetang Recipe (Korean Chicken Soup with Ginseng & Sticky Rice Stuffing)

recipe samgyetang korean chicken ginseng soup recipe sweet rice stuffing

Samgyetang Soup (Korean Chicken Soup with Ginseng & Sticky Rice Stuffing)

Korean Chicken and Ginseng Soup Samgyetang Recipe. Samgyetang is an ancient Korean variety of  soup, that  consists of a whole junvenile chicken and ginseng root. Samgyetang soup is special even more because the chicken cavity filled with a mixture of sticky rice or sweet glutinous rice along with other korean medicinal herbs. The sweet rice stuffed baby chicken then boiled in broth containing extra ginseng root, bulb of garlic and traditional herbs. Samgyetang itself literally translates as “‘ginseng chicken soup” in English. Samgyetang is traditionally served in the summer and considered as a body tonic which replace the body liquid due to excessive sweating during  hot summers in Korea, beside it’s provide nutritional and medicinal values.

Korean Samgyetang Chicken Soup with Ginseng & Stuffed with Sticky Rice

I love samgyetang, my first and only experienced eaten samgyetang soup is on Bibigo Korean restaurant, Pacific Place Jakarta. My friend told me that Bibigo Restaurant is quite authentic within the acquired korean taste. The samgyetang soup was tagged for about 15 USD exclude the taxes and service charges. The presentation is pretty simple, the stuffed chicken sinking in round metal bowl and then topped with chopped scallion. Samgyetang broth is still boiling hot, and what’s surprise me is they using young ginseng root instead of old ginseng that used to be added in chinese herbal soup.

Korean Chicken with Ginseng Soup (Samgyetang)

Authentic Korean samgyetang soup got intens ginseng root flavour, which is resemble of bitter parnish or green mustard. My friend also told me that Korean people even used to eaten the young ginseng root as a vegetable. Well, actually i personally didn’t really like the bitter after taste of ginseng root that overpowering the natural sweetness of the chicken meat, that’s why i use a tiny little  ginseng for my samgyetang soup. A little bitter hint of ginseng root on chicken soup will be pleasant for my licking.

Baby Kampong Chicken

Best Korean samgyetang sup using a young baby chicken or cornish hen, but i’m using junvenile kampong chicken weighed about 300 grams. Kampong chicken or Malay Chicken is a tougher meat than many other breeds, but kampong chicken considered a premium by people living in urban areas and costs more in supermarkets and wet markets than conventionally raised broiler chickens, due to its supposedly better flavour. Young kampung chicken needed longer time to tenderized compare to the cornish hen, this provide a sufficent time to cooked throught the sweet rice stuffing without overcooked the chicken.

Korean Samgyetang Stuffing: Sticky Rice, Ginseng Root, Garlic, Ginger, Red Dates, Sliced Abalone*optional

Samgyetang or Korean baby chicken and ginseng soup is stuffed with glutinous or sweet sticky rice. Actually it’s not only using sweet rice, but its a mixture of whole cloves of garlic, sliced ginger, and dried seeded red dates or red jujube. Depending on the recipe, other medicinal herbs such as Astragalus propinquus (hwanggi), wolfberry or goji berry (gugija), Codonopsis pilosula (dangsam), and Angelica sinensis (danggwi) may also be added. I also add some thinly sliced Rehydrated Dried Abalone within the sweet stuffing. The abalone is actually almost forgotton rehydrated abalone in my freezer that supposed to be added into my Buddha Jump Over The Wall Soup. Another important tips for making samgyetang is Do Not Over Stuffing  the chicken cavity because the sweet rice is tend to be expanded once it cooked and it’s will explode if you overfilled the chicken cavity.

Korean Ginseng and Chicken Soup,  Stuffed with Sweet Sticky Rice

Best sticky rice stuffed chicken and ginseng soup or Korean samgyetang soup recipe need tasty and delicious broth for making it. Even the autentic samgyetang recipe using nothing flavoured stock but tab water for boiling the stuffed chicken. Well, actually i prefer healthy and tasty  into my daily dish term. You know, healthy food is sometimes didn’t take place in our society simply because it’s mostly taste like a crap. I recommended using Homemade Superior Stock or Homemade Roasted Bone Stock for making samgyetang, then you didn’t need to add any artifisial flavoured into it. Beside the broth, I also add two  3×3 inches pieces if konbu or japanese seaweed that used to make dashi or japanese stock. Konbu brings umami hint that blended well with dripping juices from the kampong chicken along the bitter hint of ginseng root.

Korean Samgyetang Soup

Samgyetang soup is a very healthy meals, if you want to trimmed some of your belly fat, i guess this is the perfect recipe for your diet. Samgyetang is high in nutritional values, the lean chicken is rich in protein and essential amino acids but it’s low in calories.  It is no wonder that samgyetang is an unrivaled healthy food, but i didn’t have any reason why it’s usually consumed during the hottest day of summer and once the person is sick, but n0t in the coldy winter. Not very scientific reason but Korean people belive that  blood flow increases near the skin and decreases in the internal organs during the hotters days of summer. This condition leading to cooling of the internal organs and reducing appetite and energy. Incontrary to common believes, eating a hot dish like samgyetang can facilitate blood flow in the internal organs and recovering the appetite and energy. Samgyetang soup and ginseng also lowers body heat by emitting sweat.
