Rojaks Guide to : How to Choose Salted Fish (Ham Yue)

Mahai yesday kena pwned by the fake ahkua pics!!! Nebermind .. i will make it up today with a new discovery, this one consider one of the most important discovery of the century wan.

Alot of the younger generation nowadays derno how to appreciate our traditional food "the Salted Fish" a.k.a. (Ham Yue)

So today I m gonna teach you how to choose a good Ham Yue so next time when you wanna cook for your dad also can la!

Ok ok lets start

1st thing to remember is to notice the salted fish mia tail, tial must looks like the tail in the above pikture then that is consider good lar! if the tail is all broken ledi one (like kena bite by dogs lidat) then no good, dont buy that wan.

Then next thing is to see the fins, like the tail the fins also must be in good conditions, if the fins all broken also means the fish is no good quality one, dont buy ok?

Then you turn the fish around, check the other side (like the way shown in the above piktures) if the fish appear to be in good conditions then u can see the whole fish like very solid lidat one ...
if lidat kalo then the fish very good quality la!

Then you check the upper body of the fish pulak .... check the shoulder and chest, see got any holes or molds anot, a fresh ham yue would not have any molds or holes onnit one. If you see holes or molds then dun buy ok?

Then last skali please check the fish'd teeth, make sure all the teeth is intact and also make sure the teeth is still sharp ok? if the fish still has all the teeth that means the fler is eating very well when hes still alive, so he could be very delicious too!

With that we end our lesson today, I hope by now you all would alredi know how to choose a good Ham Yue!

If you like the Ham Yue in the pics above please get in touch with Ahnel bcoz hes my hamyue supplier! lol!
