There are multiple ways to steam a fish and the simplest way is to “plain steam” a fish. Apart from Waterless Steamed Fish (highly recommended) we didn’t share other steamed fish recipe. This time we plain steamed a Threadfin with our Monacook ceramic cookset and we think it’s a good chance for us to share the way we make steamed fish!
清蒸馬友 Steamed Threadfin Fish
There are various ways to cook a Threadfin. Given it’s rich flavour and aromatic fish oil, it’s suitable for pan-searing and making preserved fish. Of course steaming it is also a suitable cooking method and it’s very delicious!
A mouthful of fish meat with aromatic fish oil flavour!
We call it “plain steaming” because the ingredients are so simple – only the fish and some scallions
We didn’t cook the fish right away so we wrapped it with food wrap and put it into the freezer and unfroze it by putting it in the refrigerator the night before
Wash the fish thoroughly and make sure the tissues with blood were all taken out to get rid of the bad fishy smell
Place some scallion on the pan and the fish on top. Get ready some scallion slices
Insert the handle and put the pan into the steamer. Steam it at 110°C for 10mins (no preheat is needed). After that let it rest inside the steamer for 2 mins
Steam the fish and steam the eggs simultaneously. Very convenient
Prepare some boiling hot oil
We are using the Vermicular Enamelled Cast Iron Frying Pan 20cm. It’s an ideal frying pan for making small portion food
Take out the fish
Pour away the juice
Place the scallion slices on top and pour boiling oil onto it
Add some soy sauce for fish and it’s ready to serve!
