Cooking Ah Pa on Facebook Live - Steam Fish (How to Get Rid of the Fishy Smell)
Cooking Time: 10 Minutes
1/2 Barramundi fish (cleaned)
Black fermented beans
1. Boil water in steamer. Once the water is boiling, place the fish inside the steamer. Close the lid and let it steam for 7 minutes.
TIPS: To choose a fresh fish, check the eyes. It must be crystal clear. The gills should be reddish in colour and the body should be firm.
2. Put some oil in a pan together with garlic oil. Saute garlic, ginger, black fermented beans and red chillies. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and sugar plus some soya sauce and hot water. Stir it.
TIPS: Natural MSG can be used, for example, dried fish powder and dried mushroom powder.
3. Discard the fishy water from the steamed fish. Transfer the fish to a different plate.
4. Pour the sauce mixture over the fish. Garnish with some green onion slices and serve.
