AMW Cooks: Steamed Fish Fillet in soy sauce and ginger

I have always been a fan of Steamed Fish Fillet in Soy Sauce and Ginger when I dine in a Chinese restaurant.  I always find myself wanting for more but the serving is not enough.  Maybe,  matakaw lang ako!  (I just have a big appetite!) 

I used to be a "safe cook", cooking dishes that was taught to me by my mom or sister.  Now that I'm getting more experimental with my cooking, I finally mustered enough courage to cook my favorite dish!  And guess what?  It wasn't that difficult and if you search #AMWCOOKS on Instagram, I actually cooked this exact dish multiple times!  Because it is healthy and Baby AMW appreciates this!


  • Cream dory fish fillet or Cobbler 
  • Salt and pepper
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Light soy sauce
  • Regular soy sauce
  • Sugar
  • Sesame Oil
  • Rice wine
  • Scallions (optional)
  • A quick tip from me, if you buy your fish fillet from the supermarket (mine from S&R), defrost it for a couple of minutes then wash the fish fillet with hot water to remove the "frozen odor".
  • Marinate the fillet with salt, pepper and lemon/calamansi.  The lemon/calamansi is optional, I just do this step to remove some "fishy smell" if there's any!  It won't change the taste of your dish as you are not putting a lot!
  • Steam the fish fillet in a steamer, or in my case, I used my trustee rice cooker.   Don't forget to add the ginger bits on top of each fish fillet.

the steamed fish looks perfect!

  • On to the sauce, sauteed garlic until brown, set aside to be used as toppings.
  • Sauteed garlic again this time pour in light soy sauce and regular soy sauce.
  • Add water, rice wine and sugar stirring well and bring to boil.
  • Add a drop of sesame oil, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add in steamed fish.  Serve topped with crunchy garlic bits and scallions (optional).
Voila!  You got yourself a restaurant-style Steamed Fish Fillet in Soy sauce and Ginger.
