Steaming is one of the healthy ways to cook. This is because it barely uses oil and it retains the natural flavours of the meat or vegetables. Steamed fish is a light and healthy dish rich in omega3. It is a must try for weight watchers and people who look after their health.
1 pound halibut or tilapia fillet
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 thumb sized fresh ginger, cut in strips
3 cloves garlic, sliced
3 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 tablespoon peanut oil
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1/4 cup lightly packed fresh cilantro sprigs, divided in half
Dry the fish using paper towels and rub with salt and pepper. You may slice it in serving pieces if desired. Place it on a heat proof dish and top with ginger and half of the cilantro sprigs.
Steam the halibut in a bamboo steamer for 15 minutes. If you do not have a bamboo steamer, a regular steamer will do.
Discard the water or juices in the dish. Drizzle the fillet with soy sauce and add the green onions.
In a small pan, heat the peanut and sesame oil. When it is hot, fry the garlic for 2-3 minutes or until it is brown. Pour the hot oil with garlic on the steamed fish with caution. There may be some crackles when the fillet juices react to the oil.
Garnish the halibut with the remaining cilantro sprigs. Serve immediately.
