Fish Head Soup [Full of collagen]

Fish head soup for my kids! A good booster for kids during exam period as well as milk booster for breast feeding mummies. It's easy to make it at home. Just 1 whole fresh fish head to do the magic. I asked the fishmonger to chop into big chunks so that I don't need to handle the fishy smell. You can prepare before hand and store in fridge(Keep up to 1 week)/freezer (Keep up to 3 months) for later use. This soup also another source for collagen. Just drink more to look young and pretty too!
Fish Head Soup [Full of collagen]

Ingredients:
  • 1 big fish head, appromix 1kg (I used red snapper)
  • 2 Litres water
  • A few slices ginger
  • A stalk Chinese Parsley (Known as Coriander), optional 
  • 2 tablespoon of oil (To pan fried the fish head)
Steps:
  1. Wash and tap dry the fish head chunks with kitchen towel. 
  2. Used some oil to pan fried the fish chunks till golden brown for both sides.
  3. Transfer to a big pot and fill up with water, slices of gingers & Chinese parsley.
  4. Bring it to boil and lower down the fire. Continue to let it boil for 2 hours.
  5. Add salt to taste (Optional) 
This is how it looks like after fridge, jello alike fish stock. :) Heat it before serve too!

Notes:
  • I used a cast iron pot, it only took me 50 mins to achieve this milky soup.
  • The fish head you may discard or consume (It's rather tasteless).
  • For storing, Sieve the soup to prevent any small bones in the soup.

Nourish & Beauty Mushroom, White Fungus & Chicken Soup with Huiji Waist Tonic

For busy adults like us, we need to intake some tonic to keep our body healthy. Instead of buy, store & brew different kinds of herbs, what I need is to have a bottle of Huiji Waist Tonic at home. Huiji Waist Tonic has been in the market for 25 years and is one of the most trusted waist tonic brands in Singapore. It is made with 6 different kinds of premium-quality herbs: Cordyceps, Ginseng, Du Zhong, Dang Gui, Shou Wu and Da Zao. It has no alcohol content, added sugar, honey or thickening agents, and suitable for vegetarians.

You can drink it daily direct (Bitter Sweet taste) from the bottle but today I am going to add it into my recipe. By adding Huiji Waist Tonic to your dishes before serving help to give a more robust taste & of course better health benefits to it. At first, I am worried that my kids may reject  this herbal soup. My worries were unfounded! My 7 years old kid love the taste of the soup and ask for 2nd serving. Yeah! Do u want to keep yourself radiant and pretty? Give this recipe a try. J
