Steam Fish with Essence of Chicken


Ginger, young and old be it  sliced, julienned or chopped  is a common ingredient in Chinese cooking.  I used fresh young ginger in this quick and easy dish of mine, simply put, it's Steam Fish with Essence of Chicken.  Ginger pairs well with fish and other seafood as it helps to neutralise the excessively strong fishy flavours and also it adds aroma to the dish.


Recipe for Steam Fish with Essence of Chicken

    Ingredients

  • 220 gm Garoupa  fillet
  • 1 bottle of Chicken Essence
  • 1 small knob of young ginger, finely chopped
  • 2  tsp fish sauce
  • 1/4  tsp sugar
  • 2  tsp garlic oil
  • A red chilli and spring onion to garnish
  • A bit of seasalt to season
  • Dash of pepper
Method
  1. Wash and pat dry the fish fillet, place on a plate, and season with a bit of seasalt and a dash of pepper.
  2. Combine the chicken essence, fish sauce, sugar and chopped ginger.
  3. Drizzle the sauce onto the fish fillet.
  4. Steam on high heat for 5 mins.
  5. Drizzle on some garlic oil and garnish with spring onions and red chilli.
  6. Serve immediately.

  9. Hi Cheah,

    I reckon the addition of ginger to cook steam fish is totally essential. My father-in-law eats steam fish everyday and I think he will love this.

  11. Whoa...what a nice & light steamed fish fillet. My boy really enjoy this kind of cooking but it's not easy to get this type of fish fillet over here. Normally, they eat whatever my hubby caught from his fishing trip....fresh water fish. lol.
    Enjoy your week ahead.
