Yen Can Cook ~ White Wine Seafood Stew
Have you heard of Revenge Spending?
Revenge Spending refers to an overindulgence in retail therapy by consumers who have missed shopping at their favourite outlets due to the lockdown.
This is a term used to describe the sudden retail sales surge in China when the country’s three-month lockdown was lifted. It was reported that luxury titan Hermes raked in a whopping US$2.7mil (RM11.7mil) the day it opened its store in Guangzhou.
So did you do any Revenge Spending since the movement control is lifted? Not really spend in luxury items I mean, but any sort of purchases, have you? I think I didn’t lah, because I have pay cut for six months (until September 2020), so have to spend wisely and efficiently ●︿●
But recently, I was obsessed with FB live shopping, food shopping to be precise, influenced by my youngest sister. ◔_◔ We (3 of us) have been buying seafood, meat and snacks via a few FB groups, and the shopping haul can reach as much as RM300-400 per delivery! The competitive prices is one of the main attractive points that make us can’t resist to follow their every live broadcast shows and rendering the jam-packed freezer. (T＿T)
Some of the great bargains we got such as 2 grouper fishes (1kg+) for RM75, with steaming soy sauce provided, smoked duck breast for RM6.80, whole Unagi Kabayaki for RM17.00 and etc, if you’re interested to know which FB seller, do comment at below 👇 The fish fillets and clams that I used for today’s recipe was from one of my purchases.
Ingredients (Serve: 3-4)
2pcs fish fillets, or one medium size whole fish (scaled and gutted)
500g clams, cleaned (refer HERE on how to clean the clams)
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons white wine
2 tablespoons olive oil

Step 1: Heat the olive oil in a deep skillet, pan fried the both side of the fish fillet until slightly browned and move them to the side of the skillet.
