A Late Birthday Post

Visited my Sis' place one weekend a few weeks ago, to pass over their Japan souvenirs I bought during our vacation to Japan last year and surprise! They had a birthday cake ready for Raimie to celebrate his birthday, which was on Dec 2nd.

My Dad had asked us to come back during the Christmas weekend because there were plenty of durians at home but we were unable to do so. Didn't miss the opportunity to eat "kampung" durian though, as the durians made its way to our home - courtesy of my Sis. Her car probably smelled of durians for weeks, after transporting a car boot full of them from our hometown to KL! xD

Raimie sure blew a lot of candles and ate a lot of birthday cakes for his 9th birthday. *^-^*

Anyway, some random photo of yesterday's dinner. It looked totally ugly but it taste good. I promise! ;)
Raimie specifically asked me to cook salmon with garlic and cheese (yup, he dictated the ingredients) so I decided that a foil-baked salmon would be best. I didn't have lemon so I decided to use one item that is in abundance at the moment - I used mandarin orange juice instead! Olive oil was substituted with sesame oil. kakaka

Well, the salmon tasted just fine and the boys (that's hubby and son, if you are wondering) ate everything that can be eaten. >^_^<

And what did I serve the salmon with? With Nasi Goreng (fried rice). Fusion, eh? (^O^)

    1. got what! You see recipes with lemon juice one. It adds the acidity for a nicer taste. ;p

      I just happen to like changing the ingredients to whatever happen to be in my kitchen. kakaka

  6. huhuhu, mandarin orange juice?? not really fusion lah, until you use love letters to garnish the salmon then this is really fusion~~ :D

    1. The fusion part was eating a baked salmon with nasi goreng lar... ^^ lucky no added sambal belacan on the side too. hahaha

      Add love letters to the salmon. That would be "interesting". You dare to eat? :)

    2. I am so jealous of the new comment system because my blog is still stuck with the old one since it uses a custom template which I created

    3. Update your template! ^^

  8. That's another cute photo of Raimie! He's going to have to accept that in Japan there's a doting obachan who thinks he's the cutest boy definitely in Asia, possibly in the world. ;)

    I've heard so much about durian. I know it smells bad. What does it actually taste like? Impossible to describe?

    1. For me durian tastes like a bittersweet, cheese custard but with a pungent smell. There are a lot of varieties but most are very rich in texture. The smell? Try putting a few in your home for a few nights, and you sinus gets cleared up! xD

      Raimie - he doesn't mind doting obachan but he won't take any notice to girls.

  9. At a glance, I thought you used durians for your fish! Come to think of it, both do sometimes look similar. You think they smell similar too?

    1. Of course not! Imagine durians smelling like a fish. kakaka

      I wonder how would a fish taste combine with durian? Blergh? xD

  11. Wah! So creative - using mandarin orange juice instead of lemon? Still taste good? Haha!

  12. Salmon with nasi goreng? Yum! Yum! I want!!! Add in the durians too! Haha!

  13. @foong,
    Salmon and mandarin orange - OK what. The slight acidity and sweetness is good como with the saltiness of the soy sauce and cheese I throw in on the salmon. xD

    Durian and fish? You sure that's a good combo? ;p
