Salmon Mixed Vegetable Porridge (jook)


Porridge again?  Why so many porridge because this time I had been sick.  I had some bad sore throat right after Evy was cured.  It was really painful and I had to cook myself some porridge/jook/congee.  This time I used frozen mixed vegetable, dried scallop, salmon, dried shrimps and some cut bok choy.  Lastly garnished with some fried shallots.  The cooking instruction can be found at my old post here.


This was how I like my porridge, all the rice grains broken out, watery and soft.  It was sweet with a touch of salt as I added dried scallop and dried shrimps in this.  Healthy too right?


Too bad, both my girls do not fancy porridge, even though it is delicious.  My elder has been very picky and my second one just like to follow her sister.  But if the sister is at school, she will eat the porridge with me.

oh dear, hope u r feeling better? I think jook is the best comfort food of all! My fav is lean pork with century egg!
hopefully your girls will acquire a taste for it soon!

I was never a huge jook fan, but I think because the salmon was missing!

Hope you are feeling better. I love jook too, esp. when I am sick. It's like chicken soup.

Haha Belinda.

Yup Charmaine, I like chicken soup too.

Yd, I am well now, thank you.

Crustabakes, yes she really is looking up to her sister.

Luckily you Maya. Cooking jook for breakfast is a bit too much for me, just like something easy. :P

I haven´t tried Porridge with salmon, only with chicken. It sounds a good idea to try. Hope you´re getting better.

Looks delicious! I love salmon with porridge! How do you 'break' the rice grains? :)

Little Corner of Mine said...

Thanks all.

Adeline, when the porridge is cooked, you kept on stirring it until the rice breaks. ;)
