Steamed Chicken with Salted Fish

   

Steamed Chicken with Salted Fish

Check Out: Prawn Paste Chicken Recipe

Steamed chicken with salted fish & black fungus is an unbelievably easy dish to prepare and the taste is so satisfying. The “soup” as a result from steaming tastes incredibly rich and wholesome. Some call it the essence of chicken, but I like to call it the essence and goodness of home-cooked food. The ingredients like sesame oil, ginger, Chinese wine and soy sauce are common items found in an Asian pantry, so I can cook this often and with ease. This is definitely my to-go dish whenever I want a homely meal effortlessly.

Steamed Chicken with Salted Fish

This recipe is really flexible. Besides Hua Tiao/Shao Hsing wine, you can also experiment with other types of hard liquor such as D.O.M, X.O or Brandy. If you don’t have black fungus, you can use other types of mushrooms or even fresh ones. If you don’t have salted fish or if you prefer a healthier version, you can omit it. The taste will still be good. I mean, how can any dish with ginger, sesame oil and wine possibly go wrong?

    Love this very much as my mum used to make them n oh how I miss her! Quick question, what type of salted fish do u use n how do u prepare it for cooking? Eg if it is dried salted fish, do u still rinse it before u dice it! Thanks!

      I used the dried type commonly found at those stores selling dried Chinese goods (wet market/supermarket). For maximum taste, fry the salted fish bits in some oil until they become golden brown and crispy. Alternatively, I think roasting in an oven might work too. I’m a bit lazy so I just rinse the salted fish, dice and use it right away. I’ll add this note to the recipe since there have been some questions about it here and on facebook :)

        Thanks so much Wiffy! I am going to be greedy here n ask for one more thing: will u consider posting a photo of the type of dried salted fish u used? There are quite a few types, and since I have never ever cooked salted fish b4, I’d really appreciate a picture so I know what to pick. Cheers!
