 Serendipity dinner
 Hello everyone, it's actually been a while! I have missed my kitchen days so much that I couldn't wait to post this.

After work on Monday I felt extremely peckish and I wanted to eat something that had a thousand spices bursting through my head. I was working on a spontaneous energy, because I suddenly saw myself in the market. I
wanted fish that came straight out of the water. So I bought freshly caught croaker fish and shrimp. 

My serendipitous dinner! 
Croaker fish
Spring onion
Green chili
Ground Cameroon pepper
Oyster sauce
Soy sauce
Fish spice


  1. Wash, clean, dice, and set out all ingredients.
  2. Boil your rice (white).
  3. Blend tomatoes and pepper (set aside).
  4. Rub into your your fish,pounded garlic, soy sauce, thyme, fish spice, oyster sauce. Keep in a coverd bowl in the fridge to marinate for 20 min. 
  5. Pour blended to make tomapep paste into a dry pan and leave on medium heat to dry out and thicken.
  6. Put your fish in the oven to bake for about 15 min. 
  7. In a dry pot heat half cooking spoon of olive oil.
  8. When hot, add shrimps. 
  9. Stir, add Cameroon pepper, curry and salt. 
  10. Keep stirring until shrimps are cooked and have let out their natural juice. 
  11. Using a perforated spoon, remove shrimp from pot and set aside.
  12. In the same pot, add tomapep paste, little water and allow to simmer. 
  13. In a dry pan, add all veggies. 
  14. When slightly tender, add shrimps and mix properly. 
  15. When fish is baked, remove from oven and serve with shrimp, rice and tomapep sauce.
