When I was a kid, my mom would take me with her to Queen's Supermarket in Cubao to do groceries. The only thing that I could remember if feeling giddy everytime I would go to the frozen foods section to get a pack of kikiam. Apparently, one of those kiddie items that I haven't shaken out of my system.
I was never a fan of the fishball stall version of kikiam. I don't know why it never occurred to me to look for a recipe. I only considered making one today because opportunity presented itself to me through one of my favorite online recipe source Pepper.ph with their Kikiam recipe.
It's also a good thing that I have dried beancurd skin (taope) sitting in the fridge. I was able to buy taope over at Market Market. It's for a different kitchen experiement, but at least I found another recipe that I could use it on.
With my first attempt to make kikiam on the way, booboos were made as I went on with the recipe. I tried to do a makeshift steamer out of mere laziness. The kikiam fell into the water. I still was lazy enough to get the real broiler, so I just salvaged the kikiam by modifying the makeshift steamer.
Despite the foul ups, the recipe's good. We had it for breakfast this morning. Mine's the portion with ketchup. A opted for a plain one.
I'm bound to do this recipe again and play with it until I get it right. As for the Pepper.ph group, I've been saying this over and over again, thank you very much for another magnifique recipe!
