The great thing is the dish is made with a few simple ingredients such as soy sauce, sesame sauce, green onions, pepper, and a couple more. The outcome, believe me, is a better than restaurant style quality that your dinner guests and family will rant and rave about.

[wpinsertshortcodead id="pgypi60b189d6e468e"]

  • 2 150 Gram tilapia fillets
  • 4 - 5 Green onions, cut into thin slices
  • 1 Thumb size ginger, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Light soy sauce
  • 1/2 Lime, juiced
  1. Submerge the green onions in ice water while you are preparing the rest of the recipe.

  2. Place the fish into a good size bowl. Pour the soy sauce in and squeeze the lime over and sprinkle with fresh pepper.

  3. To make the steamer if you don't have one:

  4. Roll up a piece of aluminum foil into a log and form a circle with it and place it into the bottom of a large wok or deep frying pan.

  5. Put the bowl containing the fish over the foil and add enough water so it comes to the top. Bring to a boil.

  6. Lower the heat and place a lid on. Allow the fish to steam for about 10 minutes.

  7. Make the sauce by combining the soy sauce and sesame oil in a small pot and heat until it begins to bubble around a chop stick.

  8. Remove the fish from the steamer and top with the green onions.

  9. Pour the sauce over and serve. Enjoy your better than restaurant steamed fish.

I use tilapia in the recipe as it is the fish of my choice. You can use any kind of white fish, however. For example, cod, sea bass, etc. could be used. I have even know people to use salmon. Give our better than restaurant steamed fish a try and let us know what you think.
