I didn't watch this drama食为奴. But the 咸鱼包 Salted fish bun was all over the blogosphere and facebook. I checked out the recipe, it didn't seem difficult to make and it would be quite an appetizing one with the incorporation of salted fish in it. So I made it for breakfast this morning. Just like what it says in the drama (apparently, anyway), it has to be consumed right away, leaving it long before consumption will make it tough and dry. Therefore, if you're gonna make this and won't be finishing all, just dry-fry however much you wanna eat and leave the rest in the fridge.
I managed to divide the dough into 13 pieces, each weigh about 35-40g, but somehow I only had filling for 11 buns, so I wrapped two with pumpkin puree, and those were for my little fella.
