Misses my mum's dish

MUM's dishes is always my favourites. I guess everyone will agreed with me because your mum's dishes is always YOUR favourites. Right!.......^^

This is one of my mum's dish that i misses and love very very much.



This is a sweet tasted dish, it is pork belly and yam as the main ingredients. The sauce is simple and you can even do extra for later use. The pork belly is so tender after hours of steaming especailly the skin it is so smooth and the texture is so smooth and jelly like when you give it a bite. I still remember when we were little, my mum use to make this dish on special occasion. It will be a very big portion for the whole family.

Because I like this dish very much so I learn to DIY it, I asked the recipe from mum but mum did not have a proper measurement recipe. Thanks to YUM YUM MAGAZINE Vol.26 (this recipe is from chef 郭子仁) I found this recipe and it is so similar to my mum's. I did add a little ingredients and method of my mum though...^^

Shark Fin Dumpling ~鱼翅饺

This Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow), is one of my favorite dumpling. Although it is named Shark Fin Dumpling, but they contain no actual shark fin in it. Some say the look and shape of the dumpling does look like shark fin and other do include in imitation shark fin, though. I am lucky to have spotted this long hibernating in the book shelf chinese dim sum book ‘香港地道小吃’ translated as 'Hong Kong Authentic Tapas' Well, Do, you find this look like Shark's Fin?? 看看形状像不像鱼翅呢??  Filling for the ingredients are prawn, mince meat, carrot, yam bean and black fungus. Get ready the filling and the wanton wrappers. This is the parade of my Shark's Fin dumpling ... lol Homemade parchment paper liner. Arrange them neatly into the bamboo steamer. HOT! HOT! From the steamer!! Loaded with filling ..YUM! ENJOY~ Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow) (Scallop dumpling /Cilantro dumpling - depends which filling you using) Recipe adapted from  ‘香港地
