Strange to see people going for mock vegetarian food [such as prawns, cuttlefish, duck meat, mutton etc] when they are on a vegetarian diet. Personally, I don't fancy this kind of food but curious to know what is in the mock food. Here is a recipe for mock fish fillets which I made when I found out they use 'natural' ingredients.
These mock fish fillets can be pan-fried or deep fried until golden brown served with chilli sauce or use as an ingredient to prepare other vegetarian dishes. I used these to prepare Vegetarian Acar Fish [see tomorrow's post].
- original recipe from Kuali.com with slight modifications
[makes 10 pieces]
10 pieces wet bean curd [tau pau]
Seasoning - mix together
1/2 tsp each of salt, pepper and 5 spice powder
1/4 tsp each of sugar, ground black pepper and vegetarian msg
1 tsp sesame oil - to rub on tau pau after marinating
1 piece of bean curd sheet [tau puay] - cut into 10 equal pieces [about 9"x9" size]
5 pieces of Nori sheets [about 7"x7" size] - halved
- Coat wet bean curd with seasoning ingredients. Leave aside for 30 minutes.
- Lightly rub sesame oil over the marinated wet bean curd.
- Place a piece of Nori sheet over the bean curd sheet [tau puay]. Wrap tau pau with nori sheet, then wrap it with bean curd sheet into a rectangle parcel.
- Place the mock fish fillet in a lightly greased steaming tray and steam over high heat for 10 minutes. Remove and leave aside to cool completely.
- Prick the steamed fish fillet with a satay stick all over before deep frying until golden brown.
- Cut fish fillets and serve with chilli sauce or use them for cooking other dishes.
