My Mom's Yong Tau Foo (Stuffed Fish Paste)

My mom make her own "Yong Tau Foo" from the scratch.She bought a whole "Gau Yee"but seeing that I do not know what it’s called in English.Any body know what the English name for "gau yee"?.My mom said it's not Ikan Parang ,it's the family of Ikan Tengerri.Well,but to me it's look like Ikan Parang (mackeral).Anyway,she debone the whole fish,took out the flesh and chopped the fish flesh to fish paste by hand with the back of her chopper.Later,she mixed the paste with salt and pepper.My mom said the secret of "Yong Tau Foo" the fish paste must be tender and bouncy!!
I love the bean paste sauce,sweet and tangy

The chili pepper is not spicy and hot enough for me but I love the tender and bouncy fish paste
The chili pepper in the wok frying.
My mom make 2 plates of "Yong Tau Foo" with a whole "Gau Yee"...I'm standing at her side taking photo and admiring my mom cooking.When I'm back to New York,I'm going to make my own "Yong Tau Foo'!!!Viola!!
