Steamed Fish fillet with Rice vermicelli





When I saw Anncoo's  post on 'Steamed prawns with vermicelli' some time ago,  I told myself that I must make something like this.  So, I tweaked it a bit and managed to come up with this  ....... 'Steamed Fish fillet with Rice Vermicelli'.



Marinate the fish fillet with the seasoning, keep aside for a while.  Then arrange them on a bed of soaked rice vermicelli, steam under rapidly boiling water for about 8 mins. and then dinner is ready!






A nutritious and  healthy one dish meal enough for 3 servings ........ serve with some chopped chilly and Enjoy!

  3. Meanwhile, prepare the steamer with water and bring it to the boil.
  4. Mix the salt, oyster and fish sauce in  the cup of water and pour it over the rice vermicelli.

  8. Turn off heat, drizzle in 2 Tbsp Shaoxing wine and add in the garlic oil mixture.

  7. This is a very light, healthy yet very flavourful steamed dish. I am sure these vermicelli would taste really great after absorbing all the juice from the fish.

  10. I tried this last night, for dinner, with red snapper, the only one I could find. Two small pathetic snapper costed me AUD11.67. Can you imagine??? But it was yummy and thanks! I added a lot more ginger though because we're both simply ginger freak!

    Glad you liked it. Dollar for dollar, think the price is ok. Prices of fish have gone up quite a fair bit here too. But if we were to convert, then of course it's expensive.

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
