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
- Light soy sauce
- Regular soy sauce
- 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).
