Duck stuffed with fried glutinous rice & chinese sausage

This is a time consuming dish which I always wanna try out. So I made it for the 1st big meal in this new apartment.

The duck was marinated with dark and light soy sauce, pepper, ginger powder and cooking wine for over 8 hours.

For the glutinous rice, soak it in water for over 8 hours, then cook it in rice cooker until it's fully cooked. Then stir fry the rice with chopped chinese sausage, dried shrimp and dried scallop. Add some light soy sauce and sugar into the fried rice.

Stuff the fried glutinous rice into the duck cavity. Then steam the whole duck for about 1-1/2 hour (depends on the size of the duck).

When it's done, take the rice out and cut the duck.

Miso Glazed Sea Bass

This is Japanese-style miso glazed sea bass. This can be broiled, grilled or pan-fried. The pan-fried option gives a slightly crunchy crust on the outside though it doesn't look so good. :P

Need to marinate the fish for 24 hours. When you cook it, wipe out any marinade in excess and pat the fish dry.

For the marinade:

1/4 cup sake
1/4 cup mirin
4 tablespoons of white miso paste
3 tablespoons of sugar

You can also use the same recipe for black cod or halibut (thick cut of fish steaks). It should taste equally delicious.

Soy Sauce Chicken

Soy Sauce chicken for our Chinese New Year Eve Dinner. How can we have a LNY Eve Dinner without a chicken? Remember to immerse the chicken in a hot soy sauce mixture (not boiling) till it's done. Then the meat will be very tender without overcooking. The sauce mixture is just dark soy sauce, light soy sauce and rock sugar.
