INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb cod fillet or any kind of preferred white fish fillet (450g)
  • Salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic (peeled and cut into thin slices)
  • 1 inch ginger (peeled and julienned)
  • 1 red chili (cut into thin slices)
  • oz sour mustard (pickled mustard greens/kiam chai) cut into thin strips (100g)
  • 2 small onions with 4 inch stems (or scallions), cut into quarters lengthwise
  • 2 green onions (thinly sliced)

Dressing

  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Place fish fillet on a dish. Lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange garlic slices, julienned ginger, and red chili slices on top of the fish. Arrange sour mustard strips and onions around the fish decoratively.
  • Fill a large wok or pan with about 2 inches of water. Place a metal rack or stand in the wok or pan. Cover with a lid and bring water to a boil.
  • When the water comes to a boil, transfer dish with fish onto metal rack. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and allow fish to steam for 10 minutes. Fish is done when flesh flakes easily.
  • While fish is steaming, prepare the dressing. Combine minced garlic and vegetable oil in a small microwavable bowl. Microwave on high for 1½ minutes. Remove, add soy sauce, and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • When fish is done steaming, remove from wok or pan. Drain some of the juices if there is too much in the dish.
  • Pour dressing over fish. Garnish with green onions and serve immediately.
