Step-by-Step pictures of making fish jelly

I have been asked to show some step-by-step photos of how to make the fish jelly. Since I was making some for a family gathering at Pasir Ris holiday bungalow this weekend, I have taken the opportunity to take down the steps for you.

Colour the coconut jelly with the colour of your choice. Using a spoon to spoon some jelly onto the fins and tail of the fish mould.

The jelly will get thicker as it cools down. You can spoon the thicken jelly from the mould onto the fins/tail until you see a layer of jelly formed on it.

The next step is to pour in different colours for the fish into the mould. It doesn't matter if the jelly is not fully harden yet. The mixing of the different colour jelly will give the fish a nice natural marble effect.

Unmould fish and place it in a tray in any order you prefer like this.

Pour the clear jelly coloured with either green or blue over the prepared tray.

Leave it to cool down before refrigerating it for at least a few hours before serving.

I hope that these step-by-step explanations will give you a better idea of how to do this fish jelly. Give it a try for this coming CNY ok!

thanks for the pic by pic instruction..is it the same for the 'Nian Nian You Yu' jelly you made last year?

Hugbear said...

Yes, the same steps except that Nian Nian You Yu is using konnayku jelly instead of agar agar powder.

Cook the konnayku jelly as per the instructions on the packet. Colour some orange colour and do as in the pix above for the fins and tail. Later colour some jelly pink and fill the fish mould up to the brim.

Hi aretha, I bought mine in Singapore but you can ask your mom to try at local baking stores. Some of my fish moulds are bought from local baking stores like Phoon Huat. Some are bought from local neighbourhood store.
