Socks or stocks, buy when they are marked down. Food too.

Saturday, April 20, 2024

I used to blog about my meals in the early days of blogging.

Haven't been doing it for many years.

Anyway, I love fish fingers.

Specifically, Captain Birds Eye fish fingers.

I would buy the jumbo pack of 30 fingers whenever they are marked down.

Recently, I bought 2 packs as they were going for less than $17 a pack at NTUC Fairprice.

I have shared photos of how I would eat fish fingers in the community tab of my YouTube channel before and I thought I would share some photos here in my blog this time.

Most people would fry fish fingers but I bake them.

I would put them in a glass dish and put them in a microwave oven at 800 watts for 3 to 4 minutes.

Then, I would drench them in extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar.

This is followed by a powdering of ground cumin seeds, ginger, black pepper and turmeric.

These have various health benefits, especially for older folks.

This is what it looks like:

After consuming the fish fingers, instead of washing the glass dish right away, I would crack an egg and scramble it in the dish.

This is not to waste residual EVOO and the rest of the good stuff.

Microwave at 450 watts for 90 seconds and voila:

I usually enjoy some baked almonds with 80% to 90% dark chocolate as a dessert.

It might be an apple or an orange too.

That's one meal down.

I am enjoying my retirement and keeping things simple makes it even more enjoyable, especially when I am able to buy my favorite food when they are marked down in prices.

If AK can do it, so can you!

Hi ted and Unknown,

I also like fish fingers alot. Air-fry fish fingers goes well with my home-made salad.

The NTUC house brands are not bad. I like the tempura version.

Hi Yv,

I have tried the Fairprice house brand fish fingers and I didn't like them.

Really very different compared to Captain Birds Eye.

I have not tried the tempura version though.

Will keep an eye out for them the next time I visit. Thanks. :D

Hi AK, there is a risk of eating too much processed food . This because of the preservatives in the food itself that we are not aware of. I would advise you to buy fresh fish for less than $10/ kg . At Sheng S, they fillet the fish for you. They do not always do a good job as cold S. But, it gives you a sense of relief of eating fresh food. I have stopped buying processed food after the demise of my parents and friends who were diagnosed with cancer.

Hi C wong,

I think some processed food is OK such as fermented stuff.

Has many benefits.

As long as they don't use artificial preservatives, and I am very particular about this.

I wasn't always aware but after I found out many years ago, I read food labels carefully. ;p

Thanks for the kind suggestion to eat fresh! :D
