Corn Toast

My apology for not updating my blog for the past weeks...been pretty busy lately. My family are in town for the next 3 weeks and will be planning a trip to Canberra ( a really boring place but peaceful and apparently all the kangaroos are migrating nearer to the city of the capital) and later a trip to Newcastle.
Anyways, i recently discovered a really fast, "sort of healthy" food that kinda of fill me up for at least 3/4 of the day (cos i usually sleeps 1/4 away but i reckon 1/2, most of the times). I called it corn toast but i think there is a proper name for it...(if anyone knows, drop me a line)

Corn toast

Plain Bread, sliced
Corn from can, drained
Lite Ham or any ham / meat

Pre-heat oven or grill (any temp)
Butter bread, layer ham followed by corn and cheese and bake.

p/s: replaced ham with crispy bacon!

Most of us will have our salmon raw in a sushi bar or pan fried with soya sauce. I like mine in mayonnaise and miso paste. It may sound weird however the combination do mixed well together and the taste is pretty unique unless you are not a miso / mayo fan.
I discovered this recipe awhile back while reading some Japanese cooking in a bookstore and cannot remember the measurements of the ingredients. Also I modify the recipe to suit my kitchen environment (as I vividly remember that mirin and sake were needed but my kitchen dont have sake...argh)

Ingredients (estimation measurement)
1 salmon fillet
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cm ginger, grated
1 full tbsp miso paste
1 full tbsp lite mayo
a dash of sugar, salt and black pepper
spring onions and ginger, finely shredded

Rub salt, black pepper and sugar on salmon.
Mix mayo, miso, a bit of sugar and ginger.
Pan fried salmon in a bit of olive oil for a few secs (do not cook the fish).
Take fish out and set aside on a piece of aluminium foil.
Throw in spring onion and ginger and fried.
Take it out and set aside (Garnish).
Throw in paste and 2 tbsp of water and stir. Pour on fish and Bake at 180 degree will cooked. Garnish and Serve with a slice of lemon on the side.

opt: sake maybe added in the paste or before baking. Try substituting sake with chinese / white wine.

Enjoy !

Milo ICE with a twist

'ICE MILO' is such a popular drink back in Singapore and Malaysia. It is sold everywhere and you may not notice how popular it is....(if i am not wrong every 7-11 have ice milo).
Strangely I am not a fan of ice milo or hot milo (only if i am hungry). When it comes to the ice version, I will only drink it with Bailey ....and it has to be blended...(i know...i know...i am such a spoil brat)
Anyway, if u are a Bailey fan, you got to try this....

Bailey Ice Milo
Ingredients (estimation measurements)
4tsp milo
2tbsp Bailey
1/4 - 1/2 cup cold milk / 1 tbsp sweet condense milk (if condense milk used, do not use sugar again)
1tbsp sugar mix in 2tbsp hot water (depends how sweet you like)
a bit of water
ice cubes

Blend everything in a blender and serve.

Tip: Blend with chocolate coffee beans or chocolate beans or even add an additional spoon of milo while blending
