Baby - Steamed Threadfin Fillet With Red Dates & Tofu

Ang mo or Chinese dish? I call it Fusion! Wakakaka!! As long as it is jam packed with goodies for Kimi, it doesn't matter right?

The use of red dates here is inspired by one of SMH mummies, Aquarius. Deszi's nanny gave her some red dates puree. I had almost forgotten to start Kimi on some red dates! How silly of me cos red dates is not only an excellent taste enhancer, it is especially good for the spleen and stomach. Also good for nourishing blood.

When using red dates, remember to remove the seed so that it will not be heaty. Also, soak red dates for a few minutes till it is soft. This will enhance the beneficial properties as well as make it easier to be cooked.

Verdict : Kimi loves this dish! Try it!
