Barramundi Fish Porridge – Eat What Tonight

With thanks to the kind folks at Kuhlbarra, I am really pleased to receive these barramundi fish belly from them once again. With that, I prepared a fish porridge that’s wholesomely cooked using homecooked chicken stock, dried scallops and grated ginger, with literally no seasoning being used.


The barramundi fish belly was smooth and succulent and pose an excellent amount of omega 3 and collagen. But for those who prefer something less fatty, the barramundi fish portions itself would be another perfect choice for this porridge.



As you can see from my feed, porridge and noodles have always been my kind of things, not forgetting sandwiches and bread ! LOL. This porridge though without or rather minimal seasoning, was still flavourful and good in every way. And with the boneless barramundi fish that came all ready to be cooked, serving of this dish is certainly quite a breeze.



If you are a porridge-y person like myself, I am sure you will enjoy this healthy fish porridge too !



Have a great week ahead !

Pan Grilled Barramundi Fish With Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce

Hoola ! Finally I get down to penning another recipe again ! This time I actually pan fried barramundi fish belly from Kuhlbarra and coat it with a lemon garlic butter sauce. Though the name is seemingly long, but it’s actually quite simple to beef up. And since the barramundi fish belly is already succulent by itself, the sauce actually complements the fish by giving the entire dish a very refreshing and tantalizing after taste.

And since this is kinda a western dish, so I thought I would cooked up some spaghetti pasta to go along with it too. And indeed, everything pairs up nicely as an appetizing meal. The barramundi fish belly is high in collagen and omega 3, hence it has a very smooth texture due to the high fats contents.

Pan frying of this fish with some olive oil is excellent as it retains the natural taste and freshness of the fish well. I love the fact that this is so straightforward in preparation and cooking that it was served up easily in 20 minutes.

So here’s the recipe which I’ve shared earlier in my Instagram feed here too.

Enjoy !

Barramundi Fish and Egg Salad Tacos

And I made some Tacos ! Since I had a ready pack of store bought tacos shells from Mission Foods too, so I thought might just as well. The intention was to make some kids and everyone friendly tacos so the traditional mexican tacos which tend to be on a spicy sourish base might not be quite appropriate for the Asian kids’ taste buds. So I made do with some pretty effortless and probably healthier version of tacos that’s filled with baked Barramundi fish from Kuhlbarra, egg mayonnaise salad, grilled honey tomatoes, buttered corns and an abundance of oakleaf lettuce. ⁣ 

Basically I find that tacos are pretty similar to wraps if you were to enjoy it to your own style. Simply stuff the tortilla wraps with whatever you desired, make it flavorful to your delights and top it up with any sauces or dressings of your preference. 

And since I wanted a healthier tacos there and then, I eliminate meats for this time and settle on some premium Barramundi fish from Kuhlbarra. It was lightly marinated with sea salt, freshly grind black pepper and finish off with a touch of fresh lemon juice before sending it to the oven. Flake the fish at the end of the baking session and you are all good to go.

The egg salad was made with some Japanese mayonnaise which is pretty similar to what we always have had in our sandwiches. The honey tomatoes and corns were also grilled with some unsalted butter. You could also top it up with some sauces like sweet chili or bbq sauce as desired but I didn’t had any since I gonna keep it healthy.

Probably a little replicated version of our chinese popiah. Not sure if you will like it, but I quite enjoyed the process of combining all the foods on the wrap and stuffing them into the mouth thereafter. LOL. But setting the food aside, I think it also makes a good bonding time for the parents and kids. 🙂

Have fun !

Claypot Noodles with Barramundi Fish Slices 沙锅鱼片伊面

For those love a good collagen soup stock like myself but lazy to spend 6 to 8 hours cooking it over the stove, here’s another option you can consider now. The Collagen Chicken Stock from The Soup Spoon which will be sold via Kuhlbarra platform from November 2019 is an almost identical alternative. The thick groovy jelly like texture is exactly what it looked liked after we had our own homecooked collagen stock chilled.

Conveniently packed in a 500g bag, you can literally use the entire portion for a 2 person servings at one go. Hence saving you the hassle of freezing the balance. And with this rich and luscious collagen stock, I used it to prepare a very yummy-licious Claypot Noodles with succulent barramundi fish slices from Kuhlbara too !

And because the collagen stock is by itself already so rich and thick, the thickening of the soup gravy in the Claypot Noodles at the end of the cooking can also be eliminated ! It’s an easy packed recipe with little effort but taste as good as it looks.

I used yee mee noodles for this time which works really well because the flavor blends on pretty nicely with the gravy. With the rest of the ingredients liked mushrooms, carrots, green vegetables and barramundi fish as ingredients, this claypot dish makes an ideal and balance one pot meal fit for everyone.

Other than the usual soups and porridge, hope this recipe can also give you inspiration and further insight on how to utilize this very versatile collagen chicken stock from The Soup Spoon.

Barramundi & Broccoli Fish Patties

Made some really nice barramundi and broccoli fish patties today that are stuffed with some awesome barramundi fish bellies from Kuhlbarra, diced broccoli and carrots with some mashed potato ! And well serve in a one plate dish with some salad greens and egg rolls.

And I think these fish patties are really versatile in many ways too. Stuff a couple of cheese slices, tomatoes and lettuce between some burger bread and they can be easily served up as as burger patties or they can be simply enjoyed on their own with some Thai chili sauce, mayonnaise or any of your preferred dipping sauce.

Pretty healthy and kids friendly too, I would think. And if you are thinking this might not be filling enough as a main course, then you might be wrong because it was really satisfying as a meal on its own. Mainly because the patties contain potatoes and a good amount of barramundi fish.

It doesn’t take much effort to prepare these fish patties too. So hope you will enjoy these healthy Barramundi and broccoli fish patties that are well loaded with vegetables and barramundi fish.
