This is a very easy delicious dish to prepare for CNY lunch or dinner. Usually, I will prepare this dish for dinner with hubby when we are back to our own home after spending many days at my in-law's place. This is usually our most enjoyable CNY dish because it is easy to prepare. Most time, we never really enjoy a good meal at my in-law's place since CNY eve until we are back home [that is for several days]. This is because I have so much cooking to do and we usually have to rush through our meal because there are so many people eating [about 30 people] in the house.
Anyway, this dish no doubt a bit 'sinful' [healthwise] but it is a consolation after so many days of hard work and never mind I prepare this only once a year.

|Doesn't look delicious [It tastes good also]|
Note: This time, I served this dish with sliced cucumber, chilli sauce and simple Miso Soup. My neighbour's daugther gave me a tub of Miso [from Japan]. I used it to prepare a simple Miso soup stock with romaine lettuce.
