Thai Style Steamed Fish

“Refreshing seafood dish, healthy and appetizing!”

Got the idea of cooking this savory steamed fish in an appetizing and refreshing soup based from my creation of fruits salsa dish a couple of weeks ago.

My initial intention was just to use up the remaining ingredients from the Salsa making, did not expect to turn my steamed fish into such gourmet. The combination of toppings gives the dish a colorful tint as well as adding great refreshing flavor to it!

Remember to also drink the soup, too!

Ingredients (A):
1 medium to large sized Sea Bass
1 teaspoon of chicken powder

Ingredients (B):
2 small red onion, peeled and chopped
1 small bunch of parsley, briefly chopped
1 red chilli, deseed and chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon of lime juice, squeezed from 2 fresh limes

Condiments:
1 tablespoon of Thai fish sauce
3 tablespoons of water
1 teaspoon of sugar
Pinch of salt

Garnish
Small bunch of parsley

Method
1) Scale fish and remove the gills and substances inside. Dredge whole fish with salt, and then, rinse to clean. Pat dry with kitchen towel. Season both sides on the fish as well as its inner cavity with chicken powder.

2) Place fish on a large serving dish. Add condiments, followed by topping of Ingredients (B). Then, bring it to steam on high heat for 20 minutes. Garnish and serve hot.

A serving counts about 80kcal.

Tips: Add 1 tablespoon of my Special Miso sauce, it adds extra fusion flavor to this fish dish.
