Asian Inspired Steam Fish

Asian inspired steamed fish

A very good friend of mine that reads the blog told me the other day that I need to give more details on my menu, and she's right so often I just say fish with something and don't give details. Truth be told when I write the menu hubby most of the time has not even left for the market so I never know what he will come back with and I'm  usually in my Saturday morning fog.

These last few weeks have been hard on me and so the posts have been few and far between so apologies for that. However here is my recipe for Asian inspired "Steamed" fish, you'll see why I put steamed in quotations later on.

First of all, I should mention that this dish is good for any sort of white fish that needs a flavor boost such as, Cod , Tilapia etc.

Makes 4 Servings
Preparation time - 10mins
Cooking time - 10 mins
  • 4 fillets of white fish in this case I used tilapia
  • 1 tablespoon (cs) oil (vegetable in this case you need a neutral oil)
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 1 garlic clove chopped
  • 1/2 tsp (cc) fresh ginger chopped finally
  • 1/2 tsp (cc) green pimento pepper (remove seeds if you don't like it spicy)
  • 1 tomato chopped finely
  • 2 tablespoon (cs) cilantro chopped
In a non stick pan over high heat heat oil until it sizzles, add onion, garlic,ginger & piemento and saute 1 min until fragrant.
Place fillets skin side down (so that the fish does not curl) , sprinkle with S&P cook 3 minutes then turn fish.
Add 1 tablespoon water and cover immeadietly so that the water having contact with the hot pan creates steam and continues to cook the fish.
Cook for 3 mins , sprinkle with chopped tomatoes and cilantro.
Serve immediately !
