steamed cod fish

“Easy making, healthy & super delicious steamed Cod for the family”

A subtly flavorful sauce makes a delicate companion to the Cod. It’s simply easy and hassle free to prepare such healthy and delicious steamed fish dish.

This steamed Cod fish steak tasted so fresh, tender and smooth with a hint of natural milky flavour in the palate. My hubby loved it alot.

This Cod dish does not need excessive seasoning or garnishing. I topped some crisped fried ginger, and you may embellish further with some red chili jullienes and corriander for colorful presentation.

A large portion of my steamed Cod counts about 140kcal.

Tips: Making of fried shallot oil: Thinly slice 1 shallot. Heat wok with oil over medium-high fire, add sliced shallot and fry till browned. Discard the browned shallot and use only the shallot oil.
* Cod fish must be very fresh to avoid any possible fishy taste when steamed.
