Soft Tofu and Fish Paste/老少平安

This dish is simple to prepare and it is considered as Mom's cooking.  I don't know about other Moms but i do know that my Mom love to cook this and the whole family loved the dish.  After the family laid my Mom to rest last year, my brother took us out for lunch and he ordered this dish.  It was then that he told me the name of this dish  - Lo Sui Ping On.  Wow, what a befitting name!!   "Lo" in cantonese means elderly; "Siu" means the young; "Ping On" means safe and sound. Thus, this dish is safe and sound for both the young and  elderly.  The two main ingredients, tofu and fish paste, prove themselves to be safe without a doubt. The elderly can enjoy this dish without much chewing or getting choked, while the moms can confidently feed this dish to their young ones, without having to worry about fish bones.. Hence, both are both safe and sound. 

1 box Silken/Soft Tofu
1 recipe Fish Paste
Light Soya Sauce/fish sauce
White ground pepper
Sesame oil
Chopped spring onions
In a large bowl, put the silken/soft tofu and the fish paste and mash the two together until they are combined.
Transfer contents into a deep dish/platter and put to steam on high heat until fish paste is cooked through.
Drizzle with light soya sauce/fish sauce, white ground pepper and sesame oil.
Garnish with chopped spring onions before serving.
Serve hot with white rice.
