Daily menu – so far

So, since we have been away from Malaysia for yonks, you cannot imagine the excitement of finding fresh herbs, spices and various produce being sold all over Kuching and our immediate vicinity. Things like pucuk manis and daun kesom, cockles, tiny little gelama fish sold in little piles of about 20 for about RM5 – all these screamed traditional village fare to me. Thus, this past week, our menu has featured the following:

Monday – Seafood lunch as it was a public holiday and we went exploring to Kampung Buntal and Santubong.

Tuesday – Gulai Pucuk Ubi dengan Cendawan Kukur, Sambal Tumis Udang dan Telur Terubuk Goreng

Wednesday – Ikan Tenggiri Tumis Asam dengan Belimbing Buluh, Rendang Kerang, Ulam pegaga dan timun dengan Sambal Belacan

Thursday – Ikan Bawal Hitam Goreng Garing, Sambal Tempoyak dengan Pucuk Ubi, Pucuk Paku dan Midin Stir-fry dan Sambal Belacan

Friday – Asam Pedas Ikan Sembilang, Ayam Goreng Kunyit, Ikan Pekasam Gelama dan Ulam.

No photos yet to upload as our camera is also on the way 😦   As the seafood around here is fresh and plentiful, we are looking forward to increasing our intake of fish and reducing red meat in our diet. We really overdosed on red meat when we were living in the Middle East.
