Cooking Vietnamese Style....

Last night I went to dinner with friends and
watched as Tree made Crunchy Mackerel and Tofu with Garlic Chives

Soaking a bunch of Garlic Chives in the sink...when they're clean,
pick over and remove the ends and any leaves that are a bit dry or withered.

Cut them into 2inch lengths and set aside.

Cut up a block of Tofu into slices and then again into squares.

Heat up oil in a pan and gently fry the Tofu
shaking the pan to stop them sticking...being careful not to break them up.

Add the Garlic Chives and let them wilt down a bit...
toss over a little Fish Sauce and it's done.

Take the cleaned Mackerel and marinate in Fish Sauce for 10 minutes...
then pat dry .

Deep Fry a couple of the fish at a time until crunchy,
then drain on kitchen paper

They'll look something like this.

Serve with rice...delicious.
We also had caramelised Pork Spare Ribs and Bitter Mellon and Egg.

I didn't take photos perhaps I'll have a go at making some myself
and posting about that.
