The Ingredients:

  • 2 pieces of Salted Mackerel in Soya Bean Oil
  • 1/2 pound grounded pork
  • Small Piece of Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Soy Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Corn starch
  • A little more than 1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil

Special Notes:

  • I use the Salted Mackerel in Soya Bean Oil that is sold in a jar. If you like the dried salted fish, you may use this same recipe! If you buy dried ones, make sure the tummy area of the fish is white, not yellow.


  • Put 1/2 pound grounded pork into metal plate
  • Add the 1/2 teaspoon salt, corn starch and soy sauce and mix everything
  • Add another 1/2 teaspoon salt on top of the meat after

  • Take Salted Mackerel out of the Jar and use hot water to rinse and clean it, I usually just soak it for a bit because it is really oily and preserved.
  • While Salted Mackerel is soaking, chop up a piece of ginger

  • Put the Salted Mackerel and Ginger on top of the Grounded Pork
  • Put the Olive Oil on top of the Salted Mackerel, Ginger and Grounded Pork

  • Boil water in a wok or pot with a metal steamer holder
  • After it boils, place plate and cover for 15 – 20 minutes, lower to medium heat
  • Taste, add salt or soy sauce if needed

Tip from Mom:

Usually the fish is so salty that there is no need to add  more, taste the fish and pork together before adding more seasonings.
