Everyday meals that can be made in less than 30 minutes. They are simple and easy and requires no special skills. My style is mostly Chinese family style cooking.

A Fish Dish

This can be made with any of a variety of fish fillets. Which ever is on sale would be fine. Just cook the fish in a pan of water with some fresh ginger for approx. 10 minutes. Make a sauce with some oil, chopped ginger, chopped scallion and soy sauce and oyster sauce. Placed the fish fillet on a plate and pour over the sauce. That's it. It is a simple and healthy dish.

Scallion Chicken

This dish is one of my favorite. You can cook a whole chicken or with chicken parts in a pot of water with some scallions and salt for approx. 40 minutes or until cooked. In a separate small pot, add some cooking oil or olive oil, some diced ginger, lot of diced scallion and a few teaspoon of salt. Cut up the chicken into small 2 inch pieces. Once the oil is sizzling, remove from pot and pour over the chicken. That's all there is to it.
