Recipe for Simple and Easy Steam Fish

Ingredients :
  • 1 piece Garoupa Fish Block, about 300 gm
  • 1 medium  size Tomatoe - cut into wedges
  • 1 piece Bean Curd - sliced
  • 2 dried Shitake Mushrooms, soaked and sliced
  • 10 gm Ginger - chopped
Seasoning :
  • 1 Tablespoon Light Soya Sauce
  • 1/2 Teasp. Salt
  • 1/4 Teasp. Pepper
  • 1/8 Teasp. Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup water
Garnishing :
  • 1 Tablespoon Shaoxing wine
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • Spring Onions - cut
  • A dash of Pepper
Method :
1.  Place the seasoned fish block on a plate, add in the tomatoes, bean curd, mushrooms and chopped ginger.
2.  Steam the fish in a steamer of rapid hot boiling water, for about 8 minutes.  Pierce the centre of the fish  block with a chopstick and if it can be pierced through, then it's done.  Do not overcook this dish.  Overcooked fish does not taste nice, a bit rough.  Switch off the fire.
3.  Before taking out the dish, add in the Shaoxing wine, olive oil, spring onions and a dash of pepper.
4.  Serve hot with rice.

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角
