Baked Salted Fish Bun 咸鱼烧包 by Lim Su Wen

Pastry skin recipe from:

Filling recipe (pan fried salted fish bun) from:

I tried the pan fried version salted fish bun recipe but I didn't like the pastry skin. Therefore I combined both salted fish bun recipe and roasted bun recipe into one. I would say the filling is much more depending on your personal preference. I just trial and error tried it with salted fish filling instead of the usual char siew filling. Some may find it weird because they are too used to the standard roasted bun taste. Salted fish filling is a little dry, not as juicy as char siew filling.
