Food: homemade fish ball

I had almost 2 lbs of tilapia sitting in the fridge for months! I couldn’t think of a way that I want to eat them, except in fish ball soup! So I made them into balls! ๐Ÿ™‚

Homemade fish ball (yields 30)

  • 770g tilapia
  • 2/3 cup egg white (I haven’t seen any recipe using whole eggs)
  • 2 inch of ginger, chopped
  • 3 green onion, chopped
  • S+P
  • tamari soy sauce
  • white pepper

Form balls and then either steam them or pouring them into boiling water. When they come to the surface, they’re done.

  • 1/4 cup WW flour
  • 1/2 cup oat bran

Life: weekly updates

  • We met the baby this week. It was the most real thing we’ve experience since we discover I’m pregnant! ๐Ÿ˜†
  • I booked ticket to Argentina! Star is going for business, my BFF is visiting her family in Buenos Aires, so I decided to go there to meet her! It has been 6 months since I started working and haven’t take any vacation. I don’t feel the need because the work is not stressful and I rest well on the weekends. But the fact that I’m going to meet my BFF, her husband andย her mom really made me decide to go there! We met 16 years ago in Buenos Aires. Now we both live abroad, it’s nice to meet again in Buenos Aires.
  • Saturday: we invited a couple friend and Adam for dinner. I prepared a big spread of food for them.
