Ms. Dominique, with her post: Rainbow Cake and Set Lunch on a Friday, on her blog, From Dominique's Desk.

Isn't that a cute shot? A Rainbow Cake and a sweet smile is always an eye-catcher (for me)! Click on the shot and see the story behind it! :)

While walking home, I decided to check in on one of the wet markets along the way. I was very much surprised to see LIVE tilapia (fish) being sold, I know I just had to buy at least a kilogram. I saw that he had mussels, too ... so I got myself half a kilo. Here is what I did with my loot. :P

Drunken Mussles and Steamed Tilapia

For the Drunken Mussels

  • half a kilogram of mussels (cleaned and debearded)
  • one onion, chopped
  • five garlic cloves, chopped
  • ginger (around an inch), chopped
  • one tablespoon butter
  • around a cup of beer
  • chili

- Place the mussels in a container and dump in the other ingredients. Place inside steamer and cook until the shells have opened. Easy-peasy! :)

For the Steamed Tilapia

  • fresh tilapia (cleaned and scales removed)
  • garlic, ginger, onion, tomato (all sliced)
  • salt, pepper, calamansi/lemon juice

- Place fish first then add in the other ingredients, except for the juice. Cook in steamer, for about twenty minutes. Once cooked, add in the juice. Remove and serve immediately.

I know, adding loads of mayonnaise in that steamed tilapia is not healthy. lol. But it tasted real good! Hubby and I had a feast that day. :D

Oh, before I forget: Happy Hearts Day!!!! :)

Fish and seafood are so good for our health. As long as you don't overdo the mayonnaise :-)
And Rainbow Cake for dessert!
Thanks for being such a good hostess, Maiylah!
