  • 2 pieces fish fillet Dory is a good option

  • 2 tbsp ginger, julienned

Instructions

  • Dry the fish fillet with a kitchen towel then season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Peel and slice the ginger in julienne slices Cut and slice the spring onions into julienne slices as well.
  • Prep the streamer by making sure there is water underneath and the rack or steamer cover does not touch the water. Turn on the stove and bring the water in the steamer to a boil.
  • Take your steaming pan and put half the ginger and half the spring onion at the bottom. Put the seasoned fish on top then place the remaining ginger and spring onion on top of that.
  • Place the steaming pan in the steamer and steam the fish for 10 minutes. You will know that the fish is done cooking when it turns from translucent to white.
  • Once cooked, take the fish out carefully without breaking it and place it on a serving plate.
  • Take out a pan and put together the light soy, the brown sugar, sesame oil, and juice of the kalamansi. Place the stove on low heat to melt and mix the sauce. Once the sauce is ready pour it on the fish.
  • Your dish is ready to serve.
