Steamed Fish, Mom Food Blog

We have a favorite restaurant in my city that offers steamed fish and the family love it very much.  But it is very pricey and a pain in the pocket.

My philosophy is always to find ways to do it myself or do it at home if it is too cost restrictive to enjoy it.  In this way, I am able to save a lot of moolah and be able to binge as much as I want to my satisfaction.

I did my usual rounds in my local fish market and I found this fish displayed beautifully in the wet market and I find them low-priced and fresh.  I right away bought around 500 grams and think of ways to cook it.  Ah, steamed fish is perfect!

Restaurant Style Steamed Fish

When we dine out, I usually take note of the dishes that I love and try to replicate it at home.  This style of cooking is different from the one I did before.

I first steamed the fish in the steamer for around 8 minutes and when they are cooked, I throw away the water where all the fishy smell are found.

Then I mix a soy sauce, water, sugar, powdered pepper and set it aside.  I then sliced ginger and scallions.  In a frying pan,  I saute the ginger in a cooking oil, then add the mixture of soy sauce and spices then top it with the scallions.

I then poured over the mixture to the  fish.  It is so delicious! Perfect fish dish.

Sharing to you this recipe.  Have fun and happy eating!
