Remember that I packed back the crispy fried fish head from my meal in Oriental Pavilion Jaya 33. Seriously I am not a fan of fish head. I am so a fillet person. But for most Chinese, the fish head apparently is the best part. Something about the soft juicy meat, blah blah blah...sorry I don't get it cos I don't like bones and can't stand to chew and then having to spit out the bones.
Since there was a leftover of a crispy fish head, I came up with a brilliant idea on what to cook with the fish head. FISH HEAD MEE HOON!! I only eat fish head bee hoon outside. Never attempetd to cook it at home. Main reason since I don't eat fish head, why would I buy fish head to cook? When I eat fish head noodle outside, it is more for the soup than the fish. Yeah yeah...I am a bit weird but I like what I like, can't change now.
I had the whole crispy fish head and even some of the fillet meat leftover. So, all I need now is to make the soup base.
It's simple as always. I sliced one tomato, some preserved salty vegetable and a bit of sliced ginger. Ginger is to remove the fishy smell out of the fish. And all I did was to put these ingredient and the fish head into a pot of water and just let it boil.
