Mixed Vegetables and Seafood (a V-Day Gift) ♥

Since may pasok ang Valentine’s Day at may bulinggit na naghihintay samin sa bahay, hindi na kami nakapag date ni husband.
I decided to cook something special for him, as my gift. I was planning to cook BREADED  CREAM DORY FILLET and MIXED VEGETABLES AND SEAFOOD, pero sa veggies palang, na-drain na ako! (Don’t blame me, galing pa ko ng work!)
Let me share my MIXED VEGETABLES AND SEAFOOD recipe =)

Let me share my MIXED VEGETABLES AND SEAFOOD recipe =)


canola oil


8 cloves garlic, minced

1 medium sized red onion

1 medium sized white onion1 large carrot, cut in your desired size and shape

1 large sayote, cut in your desired size and shape

1 head (tama ba) brocolli

1 head cauliflower

1 pack sweet peas (sicharo)

1 small baguio pechay

100 grams salmon belly, cut into thin strips

100 grams squid, cut into rings, cleaned, so that the ink won’t stain your veggie

100 grams squid balls

100 grams cream dory fillet, cut into thin strips

2 Shrimp Knorr Cubes (I didn’t find a peeled shrimp in the grocery, that’s why I cheated! Hehe)




garlic powder


1. Marinate the squid, cream dory and salmon with calamansi juice, salt, pepper and garlic powder (calamansi is used to reduce the ‘lansa’)
2.  In a non-stick pan, heat canola oil and butter.
3. Place in the salmon, skin first (para hindi madurog yung fish, this way, you’ll create a ‘crust’ for the fish)

* Be sure not to overcrowd the pan to ensure equal cooking.

* Maintain the heat level of the pan, kapag maya’t maya pinapalitan yung fire, ang tendency, pangit yung magiging result ng niluluto, kasi mag-a-adjust ng mag-a-adjust yung food sa temperature.

4. Once the salmon turns golden brown, place it in a paper towel to remove excess oil.
5 . Do the same with the squid, dory and squid balls.

Mixed Vegetables:

1. Heat pan (I prefer a wok-like non stick pan for equally distributed heat)
2. Add oil, then butter. ( I add oil in  before butter to avoid the butter being burned)
3. Saute garlic and red onion.
4. Add a dash of salt and pepper (Mama taught me this to enhance the flavor)
5. Add carrots and sayote.
6. Once tender, you may add cauliflower and brocolli.
7. Add a little water.
8. Add the shrimp Knorr cubes
9. Add the sweet peas and baguio pechay.
10. Simmer for another 5 minutes.
11. Add the stir-fried seafood.
12. Enjoy!
