This was one of those days yay! Soup was eel with black beans, steamed chicken cubes with ginger and 'lap cheong', teriyaki salmon and stir fried lettuce. I'm very into soups lately cause for some strange reasons the little one loves it to bits. So I'll be jotting down recipes for soups mainly just so when i run out of ideas, I could always come back here to see what I've made before.
Conger Eel with Black Beans Soup:
1 huge piece of eel, mine was almost 1kg.
1 rice bowl of organic black beans
a handful of red dates
few slices of ginger, depending on how hot the ginger is (Kiwi ginger is super hot!)
2 litres of water (it should reduce to half when its done)
Put all ingredients into a big pot and bring it to boil on high heat, then turn it down to a simmering point and leave for another 3 hours. Salt to taste at end.Supposedly, or I've been told by my mum black beans are great for blood nourishing effect. I love it anyway!
