Thai Steamed Fish with Lime Garlic Chilli

This dish can easily be summed up by three words: Easy, healthy and uberlicious. All you need to do is to steam a fresh white pomfret and pour the rest of the ingredients over. Seriously. This just can't get any easier or tastier.


1                      medium white pomfret, cleaned and gutted
2                      lime (1 sliced thinly and the other juiced)
4                      chilli padi, sliced
4 cloves           garlic, minced
1/2 cup            chicken stock or hot water with 1/4 bouillion cube
2 tablespoons   fish sauce
1 bunch            coriander leaves, roughly chopped


Place the sliced lime in the gut and on top of the fish. Steamed on boiling water on high heat for 10 - 13 minutes or until the fish's eyes are white and fully popped out.

Mix 1/2 cup of chicken stock, 2 tablespoons of fish sauce, chopped chilli padi, minced garlic and juice of 1 lime together.

When the fish is ready from steaming, pour the prepared sauce mixture over and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve with a bowl of steamed white rice.
