A Beginner’s Guide to Meal Prep

meal prepping

Meal prepping saves time, is more efficient, and reduces the temptation to deviate from your meal plan, whether you are on a diet or budget. It enables you to enjoy home-cooked meals without hassle each time you want to have a good meal, especially when cooking every day isn’t an option. When it comes to meal prepping, it’s a good idea to fill your pantry or freezer with staple foods such as EB Frozen Food like prawn paste, fried wontons, crab stick roll, fish strips and more.

Here’s your beginner’s guide to meal prepping. Read on to find out.

Step 1: Decide on the best method of preparation for you

Depending on your schedule, the type of meals you like to prepare in advance, and your cooking style, one or more of these meal-prep methods may work best for you.

Complete meals: Cooking complete meals ahead of time and reheating them at mealtimes (such as a pot of soup) provides a quick fix if you have limited time to prepare meals during the week.

Batch cooking/freezing: Batch cooking is dividing and freezing a meal into several batches for future meals. For instance, you could double a soup recipe or cook extra rice to freeze and use in the next couple of weeks or months.

Individually portioned meals: Preparing foods and portioning them into individual servings is an excellent choice for individuals with specific health goals or who like the convenience of grab-and-go meals. Salads in jars and overnight oats in single-serving containers come to mind.

Ready-to-cook ingredients: If you prefer to prepare meals just before serving, prepping ingredients ahead of time saves time in the kitchen, which is particularly helpful on a busy workday. For instance, you chop onions, peppers and chilli and keep them beforehand.

Step 2: Develop a Strategy

After deciding which type of meal prep you will benefit from the most, make a plan to help you stay organized. Keep the following in mind as you plan your meals and preparations:

Choose a meal: If you wish to improve the efficiency of your morning routine, making smoothie packs will save you time in the morning. Also, make meals that you can quickly reheat if you don’t have time to prepare throughout the week due to a busy schedule.

Reliable recipes: Stick to tried-and-true recipes while planning and preparing your meal, with one or two new ones thrown in for variety. Keeping things simple will save you time.
A pot of brown rice, a couple of golden fish strips or chicken rolls, and a tray of roasted vegetables may be used to create anything from rice bowls to fried rice to salads if you’re short for ideas.

Plan your preparations: Setting aside some time for actual preparation is essential. Make a realistic prep plan and consider dinner preparation on the same day you go food shopping.

Step 3: Make a shopping list and go out to the store

It’s time to create a grocery list now that you’ve settled on a meal. However, before you rush to the store, check around your kitchen.

To make meal planning simpler, stock your pantry with a variety of essential items like dried herbs and spice blends, as well as shelf-stable healthy grains like brown rice and quinoa. Low-sodium canned beans and broth, fridge staples like eggs and precooked chicken sausage, and a few frozen chicken snacks (like chicken rolls and crispy chicken wontons) can quickly transform prepared ingredients into meals.

Make a more detailed shopping list: You can browse the grocery store with a list organized by department. Keep note of the items you use every week, such as olive oil, onions, and rice, and add them to your shopping list as required.

Make sure you have enough containers: Depending on your week’s plans, you’ll need a range of storage containers, including glass and plastic containers with lids, as well as zip-top storage and freezer bags.

Step 4: Preparation and Storage

Make the most of your time by beginning with the dishes that will take the longest to prepare. Prepare the first-to-cook ingredients and preheat the oven. For grains that need longer to cook, such as farro or brown rice, bring water to a boil.

Prepare the onions for both recipes at the same time and divide them as needed if the same ingredient is used in both, such as chopped onions. To prevent having to wash your cutting board between operations, cut food that will be consumed raw first, then stuff that will be cooked. Always use a clean cutting board and utensils after preparing raw proteins like meat or poultry.

If cut veggies like onions and peppers are stored in sealed containers, they may be maintained in the refrigerator for two to three days. For example, chopped carrots and winter squash will keep for at least four days. Greens and lettuce may be stored in the refrigerator for a week after being washed, dried, and refrigerated. Vegetables, cereals, meat, poultry, fish, or egg dishes should be eaten within three to four days after preparation and warmed to 165°F before serving.

If done correctly, soups, chilis, casseroles, and cooked grains may be frozen for future meals. During those crazy busy weeks, there’s nothing more gratifying than pulling a ready-to-reheat meal from the freezer!

Allow soups and cooked grains to cool to room temperature (within 2 hours) before storing them in quart-size plastic containers or zip-top freezer bags.

Allow for expansion when the food freezes by leaving an inch at the top of the containers. Label and date containers to remind you to eat frozen foods within three to six months. Reheat to a cooking temperature of 165°F when ready to serve. 

In a Nutshell

You’ll discover a meal prepping method that works best for you with a bit of practice as a beginner. Whether you’re preparing ingredients for a single meal, packing work lunches for the week, or creating a double batch of chilli to freeze for next month, meal preparation always pays off if you have staple ingredients always available. So get started now and get all you need from your frozen food supplier! For more information, feel free to get in touch with us.

Easy DIY steamboat (hot pot) at home!

DIY Steamboat

One of the most fun ways to spend time with friends and family is to enjoy a steamboat together. All you will need is a nice pot of stock and whatever toppings you like. Seafood, meat, veggies, and noodles are just a few of the options. Some of these ingredients can be bought from your local frozen food supplier.

In this post, you will learn an easy DIY steamboat you can cook at home.

There’s nothing as delicious as a pot of hot, simmering soup with a variety of fresh ingredients. Soup stock for steamboat comes in a variety of flavours, but the most basic hot pot series just requires a delicious chicken broth.

How to make your chicken broth?

Ingredients 

  • Bones from 1 chicken
  • 6 cloves of crushed garlic
  • Ginger
  • 1 bunch spring onions
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • Ground white pepper 
  • Water enough to cover everything

Bring all of the ingredients to a boil, then reduce the heat. Allow for a half-hour to an hour of simmering time. To keep the soup clear, skim off the grey froth (scum) on top with a ladle. The soup will be more flavorful if you use more bones. When it’s done, strain it into your steamboat pot, discarding the bones and vegetables.

Fresh seafood, thinly sliced chicken or beef, assorted vegetables, noodles, wontons, and dipping sauces are usually included in a basic steamboat menu. To have a nice steamboat, you don’t need a lot of variety; just a few good ingredients would suffice. In general, more seafood results in a sweeter broth in the end, whereas meats result in a richer flavour.

Using large chunks of protein that require a long time to cook, such as bone-in chicken and beef, or whole fish, is a major no-no for steamboat. To cook in a minute, the proteins must be boneless and finely sliced.

Seafood platters are simple but delicious. Fish balls are a must-have, and prawns will sweeten the broth. Squid and tenggiri fish slices will cook in less than a minute. If you want to mess about with shells, crabs are an option. There should be no seasoning on any of these. The soy sauce will provide the flavour.

 

Delicious ingredients to create an aesthetically appealing, delicious, and nutritious hot pot series

1. Small Leaf Prawn Paste

The delicious Small Leaf Prawn Paste is made from a big chunk of high-quality prawn meat. Enjoy a smooth and light springy texture with preserved prawn taste. It’s perfect for a steamboat as you can just pop them into the steamboat as soon as they leave the fridge. Yes, defrost is not necessary.

Why are Frozen Seafood Products a Better Alternative for Busy Moms?

Pregnant Woman buying frozen food and holding a deep-frozen product in a supermarket

Nowadays, people are constantly moving due to a demanding work schedule and family obligations, including moms. One consequence of the busy life is that food may be eaten in a rush.

Usually, with one hand, while the other is used to navigate the vehicle, sending messages on their mobile phone while commuting, or type on their computer while at work and at the same time eating lunch. Busy moms may not have the time to cook family meals.

Fortunately, processed frozen foods can help to reduce more than half of your cooking time, giving you just enough time to whip some healthy meals for you and your family.

Frozen foods are half-cooked meals that are stored for next use in a freezer. Since most of the work is finished, busy moms can heat the food for a few minutes and perhaps add a few ingredients and serve, saving you time and energy.

Freezing is a method of natural preservation and does not require additional preservatives. By freezing, vitamins, minerals, and important nutrients are locked in. Frozen food, therefore, is a real alternative to fresh food, which is just as nutritionally healthy, especially if you have a busy schedule.

EB’s processed frozen seafood products have their nutrients locked in, unlike fresh produce that loses some nutrients during storage over time. In general, the nutrient content of frozen seafood is the same and, in some cases, much greater than that of its fresh counterparts. Generally, the mineral content remains the same as that found in fresh foods.

 

Why Buy Frozen Seafood?

The best backup choice for busy moms is frozen seafood and vegetables. They can easily be a genuine alternative to fresh food that takes longer preparation and cook time. It’s just as good nutritionally as fresh. Besides, after the day’s work, you need something you can easily cook without adding to the day’s stress.

If you and your family want to have a healthy, nutritious diet but lack time to cook fresh food, it can be a great source of nutrients to have processed frozen seafood products, vegetables, and fruits in your freezer.

 

Must-have Frozen Seafood for Busy Moms

a. Prawns and Shrimp

An essential addition to any freezer is prawns or frozen shrimp products from EB Frozen Food such as Prawn Paste, Tiger Prawn Roll and Shrimp Wonton.

They don’t take long to defrost and are a flexible ingredient — you can use cold water and hold them in the bag during thawing. It is easy to cook or added to a versatile food. For those who fancy Prawn Paste and Tiger Prawn Roll, the good news is defrosting is not required. In fact, you can directly cook them from frozen giving busy moms great convenience.

b) Fish and Crabs

Onboard the ships, commercially captured fish is flash-frozen to hold nutrients, kill parasites and make it last longer. Although white fish can dry out a bit, oily fish such as salmon and tuna freeze well. 

Frozen fish products of EB Frozen Food like the Fried Fish Ball, Crab Nugget, Cooked Fish Ball, or Fish Roe Lucky Bag are easy to thaw and don’t take long to cook. It also is used as an ingredient for versatile foods. When it comes to Fish Roe Lucky Bag, it is made with premium surimi and full of fish roe make this successful combination creates an unprecedented delicacy experience.

c) Finger Food

Finger Food are quick and easy to cook. The Chicken Series is sweet, fragrant, and nutritious — cooked through tender, marinated chicken breast, mushrooms, and scallions. Finger foods like the Crispy Chicken Wonton, Chicken Roll (Cheese), Chicken Roll (Salted Egg), etc., are available on EB Frozen Food. Seafood finger foods like Crab Stick Roll, Fish Chip, Golden Fish Chip, etc., are also available. These fresh and flavorful finger foods are excellent for busy moms; they could double as a main in larger servings and accompanied by side dishes.

Using Frozen Seafood

From a food safety point of view, it is critical not to refreeze after the product has been thawed. Most frozen crumbed foods are cooked from frozen, so you don’t have to think ahead. And prawns are quickly thawed by putting cold water in a bowl and then draining in a sieve.

A variety of cooking methods are mentioned on the label. We do not suggest deep or shallow frying, as these methods add a lot of fat and kilojoules unnecessarily. Oven-baking is a better way to cook crumbed products. Stir-fry foods such as prawns.

 

In a Nutshell

Finally, not only are EB’s frozen seafood products fast and simple to prepare, but they also help reduce food wastage. By using just as much as you need and throwing the rest of your frozen food back in the fridge, you can easily manage your portions, which in turn saves you cash from not having to throw left-overs away.

Moreover, there is a surprisingly sweet and yummy taste that comes with a warm seaweed soup. Enjoying this delicious meal with your family during either cold or hot weather.  

Different sources of protein (e.g., chicken, beef, fish, mussels, or tinned tuna) can be cooked with the soup along with light seasoning (salt, pepper, garlic, and sesame oil). When all these ingredients come together, the result is a nutritious soup that is immune-boosting and gut-healing.

High Nutritional Value

Not only is seaweed soup with prawn paste delicious, but it also has high nutritional value. The seaweed contains a lot of unsaturated fatty acids, choline, iron, etc. that lower blood lipids and even clear lung heat and diuresis. They are one of the superfoods of nature and contain a plentiful supply of minerals and nutrients. 

The seaweed is believed to provide an excellent supply of iodine that is necessary for maintaining a healthy thyroid, high in antioxidants and calcium, regulates and purifies our blood, and helps encourage weight loss.

1. How to Get Started

When cooking this soup, you need to use the dried seaweed laver. The most popular variety is the purple laver, which is sold in the processed seafood product section of most grocery stores. It is often branded as “Porphyra,” which is just the formal name.

There are typically four round discs of dried seaweed laver inside the pack. This is the form in which they are naturally dried on a flat surface when laid-out. If 80g of dried seaweed laver is included in your whole kit, each disc should be around 20g.  

Depending on how much soup you want to make, use half to one whole disc. You can either tear it with your fingers or hack it up with a pair of scissors. The dried seaweed laver can be added to the soup directly — pre-soaking is not necessary.

10 Tips for Handling Frozen Food

10 Tips for Handling Frozen Food

tips for handling frozen food

Did you know that at 10°C, a temperature lower than room temperature, bacteria on your food can double every fifteen minutes? Therefore, ensuring that your frozen foods are being appropriately handled across all stages, from buying to storage and thawing, will prevent bacteria from breeding in your kitchen. 

When it comes to frozen foods, it is essential to know proper handling methods to ensure freshness. The appropriate handling of your frozen foods in the kitchen is vital to protect it from any contamination. Here are ten tips for handling frozen food. 

1. When shopping, leave the frozen foods until the end

When shopping for frozen foods in the mall, leave them until the end of your shopping to add it to your trolley so that it doesn’t start defrosting. When you get home, cook it right away or store it in the freezer immediately.

2. Transport frozen foods using the appropriate measures

If possible, transport frozen foods from the market to your home using a cool box. Other materials such as padded cool bags, fleece jackets, or fleece blankets are also ideal. In addition, make sure that your frozen products are tightly packed.

3. Abide by the manufacturer's instructions

Carefully read and understand the manufacturer’s cooking and handling instructions for the frozen foods to ensure that it retains its best quality.

4. Leave the food in its packaging when defrosting

When thawing, leave the food in its packaging to avoid cross-contamination and stop the food from drying out. For instance, chicken juices shouldn’t come in contact with other foods.

5. Defrost according to the manufacturer's instructions

Some frozen foods can be cooked as soon as you bring them out from the freezer without thawing. For instance, EB Frozen Food’s star product, Small Leaf Prawn Paste allows you to cook from frozen. If thawing is needed, ensure that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions to get the best out of it.

6. Vegetables should be blast frozen

Frozen vegetables are healthy. After harvesting, they are blast frozen immediately while all the vitamins and other nutrients are still intact. Blast freezing your vegetables will retain its nutrients for a long time. Fresh vegetables often lose their nutrients during long transportation routes. When they’re frozen, the valuable nutrients remain intact. Therefore, ensure that you keep your freshly bought vegetables frozen if you aren’t going to use them immediately.

7. Store food in small portions for easy thawing

Take out only the required amount of frozen food you need to eat at a time. When buying and storing food in the freezer, ensure that your food is split into smaller portions, enough to satisfy you per serving, to make thawing easier later.

8. Heat frozen foods thoroughly before eating

If you still have some leftover from a meal cooked with frozen food, it can be frozen and defrosted at another time. However, ensure that you heat the food thoroughly before eating.

9. Thaw your food by refrigeration

When defrosting your frozen food items, take it out from the freezer and allow it to defrost slowly in the refrigerator. The coldness from the frozen food will be absorbed by the fridge, thereby helping you save energy. Defrosting food in the refrigerator also slows down the formation of bacteria due to low temperatures. 

However, keep in mind that defrosting food in the refrigerator takes longer than defrosting at room temperature. Therefore, if you’re going to allow your food to defrost slowly in the refrigerator, do it long before you start cooking.

10. Ensure that the packaging is sealed tightly

When you freeze your food, make sure that the packaging is sealed tightly. When buying frozen foods from the supermarket, check to ensure that the packaging is sealed thoroughly to avoid freezer burn.

In a Nutshell

Finally, when it comes to meat, ensure that you heat it immediately after thawing. Moreover, do not thaw frozen foods by dunking them in the sink or bowl of water. 

If you have limited time for thawing, use a microwave. Again, cook immediately after thawing with a microwave. To know more about your favorite frozen foods in Malaysia, including halal frozen food, feel free to get in touch with us.
