Steamed Fish Fillet with Soy Sauce

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

It's a good thing they are now selling fish fillet at the local grocery. Before, it took pains to fillet a fish, and to think that the preparation of the actual dish itself is relatively simple. These days, whenever I feel like preparing a fish dish, I need only to go to the nearby grocery and get a pack of fish fillet. Using just a few simple ingredients and requiring less than 20 minutes to cook, it makes an excellent, nutritious, and light dinner for the whole family. One of my favorites is this simple steamed fish fillet dish below.

Steamed Fish Fillet with Soy Sauce


¼ kilo fish fillet
¼ cup of light less-sodium soy sauce
¼ cup fish or chicken broth
1 piece ginger cut into thin strips
1 stalk Welsh onions sliced
8-12 pieces peppercorns
1 teaspoon canola oil
salt and pepper

1.Rinse the fish with clean water and pat dry. Rub with a little salt and pepper and then set aside.
2.Ready the steamer. Steam the fish for 20 minutes or until flaky. Be careful not to overcook it or else the fish would become dry.
3.When cooked, set the fish aside.
4.In a sauce pan, heat the oil
5.Cook the ginger in oil for a minute.
6.Add in the broth and then the soy sauce.
7.Let simmer for five minutes.
8.Crack the peppercorns and season the sauce with it.
9.Before turning off heat add the sliced Welsh onions.
10.To serve, arrange fish fillet on a platter. Pur the sauce over the fish and serve hot with steamed rice.
