**Ugly Delicious: Crispy Fish & Hospital News
Good news, bad news.
OK. The good news first. Brought home some pan fried fish the other day, just had to reheat it in the oven for a bit, and it is ready to rumble. Super crispy, I could even eat most of the bones, tasty, and not a even a bit fishy. All we need to do is just marinating the fish with salt, preferably overnight, you can add lime juice for a punch of acid, and pan fry both sides til golden brown. Serve with steamed rice. A dip of chilli with sweet soy sauce, finely chopped shallot, corriander and lime juice made it perfect.
As for the bad news...I gotta be away in a hospital for a few days...no, I am not having a boob job or nose job, eye job nor lipo (I wish....), so I am not gonna emerge looking like Rachael Ray's twin anytime soon.
I will be having a surgery to treat my hyperthyroidism. Although the medical condition made me eat like a construction worker without getting me fat, I've decided to go through with the surgery (am I crazy???!!!), due to the fact that the medication I've been taking for years compromised my immunity system and made me super vulnerable.
I wanna cook some serious fried things and I wanna be able to eat them too, so I gotta get well.
Wish me luck guys, promise to write as soon as I could get my hands on my keyboard :)
