Pumpkin are very versatile and most parts of it are edible. It can be cooked in many styles i.e: boiled, baked, steamed or roasted. It is high in vitamins A, C, and Beta-carotene too.
Last night I had dinner, at Loong Foong Seafood in Paramount Garden, Petaling Jaya, with my daughter, Mindy before she leaves for Penang to celebrate the CNY festival with her in-laws. We ordered Yee Sang which was a tad too sweet and not sourish, Snakehead fish slices cooked with ginger and spring onions, stir fry "Lai Pak" vegetable and Pumpkin with assorted seafood which was outstanding and the center of attraction on the table. Just thought of sharing it with everyone!

The steamed whole Pumpkin with the middle part hollowed out and filled with assorted seafood-rm50/.

It was filled with fresh white scallops, thinly sliced abalone, smooth and moist Shitake mushrooms, spongy fish maw, Pacific clams, and soft and thick sea cucumber in a thick gravy made from superior stock with traces of XO oyster sauce. Tasty, delicious and cheap at only rm50/. Imagine eating this dish with white fluffy rice by the sea side with the sea breeze blowing in your face.
