Pork Fillet with Salted Fish

A simple, tasty meat and salted fish dish that goes well with rice or porridge.  I cooked this dish with home-made salted fish fillet.   It's a surprisingly good dish where the meat pieces absorb the salty, sweet flavour the salted fish.   I keep telling my hubby that the meat and salted fish are so tasty. The pork tenderloin can be replaced by meaty chicken thighs.
Can you see the salted fish pieces?

Home-made salted fish fillet.  My hubby is good in making salted fish.  This was made from his catch recently.  Fresh fish made in tasty salted fish.

Kimmy, salted fish is very tasty! Love the smell when frying. Wah, your hubby makes salted fish! Is it easy to make?

Kimmy said...

Hi Betty, it's really tasty that I can make it into a One Dish Meal [rice, meat dish and pickled cucumber or salad]. Moreover, it can be cooked way ahead of meal time.

Yes Phong Hong, especially home-made with fresh fish. The salted fish is sweet and salty, gives a very unique flavour to this dish. According to my hubby, it's very simple. Scaled and cleaned the fish. Soak in clean sea water for a day, drained, season with salt for one day. Then drying under the sun until dry. Believe me, his salted fish is very crispy when fried. Demand more than supply, hehehe!

Kimmy can I invite myself over to your house for dinner tonight? Your dish made my mouth watered. The way you cooked this dish is absolutely yummilicious! What kind of salted fish should I get? The soft flesh one or the hard one? I never buy salted fish.

I can imagine how tasty this dish is with home made salted fish! Drooling already :)

Your husband made his own salted
I know this is a tasty dish, I could eat two bowls of rice with this dish alone!

Kimmy said...

Hi Veronica, sure you can come over for dinner. You can get the boneless salted fish fillet. Something like you see in the photo [my hubby's homemade salted fish].

Kimmy said...

Hi Lite Home Bake, I will be cooking another dish with chicken, with the seasonings as per your recipe. Must be very good.

Kimmy said...

Hi Jozelyn, this is what I'm worried about when the dish is too yummy. So I seldom cook extra rice but will finish the 'liao', hehehe!

Hi Kimmy,
Wow, homemade salted fish! Fantastic! This is such a delicious looking dish. I could eat two bowls of rice with this one dish alone! Sinfully delicious!
Thanks for sharing with CYB!

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, this isn't that 'sinful' cos' I used lean pork tenderloin but it's good with pork belly. I agree more rice is needed with this dish. The gravy over rice......yummy!
