Steamed Salted Fish with Tofu Soup

On with 0 Comment
Steamed Salted Fish with Tofu SoupThis is yet another light and delicious recipe that can be prepared fairly quickly. Steamed fish cooks quite fast and retains all its nutritional value. Similarly, properly cooked tofu soup is very healthy and delicious at the same time. I've used classic tofu for this preparation but you can use a different variant to introduce the right kind of flavor preferred by you and your family members. You can also use pickled fish for this recipe but make sure it's not too salty. Vegetarians can use steamed eggplants to replace the fish. Always serve it hot with steamed or fried rice. Tofu soup can be refrigerated and can be used for up to 2 to 3 days. Let's make this scrumptious, rich and healthy recipe in a few easy steps.
