Thai Style Garlic Steamed Salmon

My second thai style steamed fish .  The original recipe was from Echo's Kitchen.  My first Thai Style Garlic Steamed Fish was from Table for 2 ....or more.   The difference between the two is the latter has lemongrass added.  Tastewise, almost similar, awesome, very tempting and appetising.  You wouldn't mind preparing the same again and again cos' it is really simple.

[adapted from Echo's Kitchen some modifications for easier reference]
300-400 gm fresh grouper [garoupa] - scaled and cleaned
some coriander leaves
Steaming Sauce Ingredients [combine together]
4 big cloves of garlic - chopped
3 chilli padi - slice thinly
2 tbsp calamansi lime juice 
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp fish sauce [I used anchovies fish sauce]
1/2 tsp salt
  1. Place a tablespoon of the mixed steaming ingredients on steaming plate, then place cleaned fish on top.
  2. Prepare steamer and bring water to boil.  Place steaming tray with fish to steam over high heat for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. Remove from steamer.  Garnish with coriander leaves and serve immediately.

Kimmy, it's been long time I haven't done steamed salmon. Next time I buy salmon I will try the Thai style. I sounds really delicious.

Hi Phong Hong, it really is yummy otherwise I wouldn't repeat it, lol.. You would love it if you like tangy taste and lots of garlic. Moreover realy easy to prepare.

this is one of my favourite dishes to order whenever we frequent a thai restaurant - they make it super sour - so good with rice. I am steaming a fish for dinner tonight, think I'll do this :)

I've never tried steaming salmon, normally it's grilled or panfried. This is a must-try as it's easy!

Kimmy said...

Hi Esther, I strongly recommend that you try this way. Easy yet yummy and very appetising [khai wei].

Kimmy said...

Hi Cheah, yes I will usually grilled or pan fried salmon with a squeeze of lime and chilli padi. But I found this way a good option and the gravy over rice is lovely [hoi wei].

I simply never get enough of garlic. Garlic everything! Makes the food tastes and smells terrific, don't you think?

Hi, many people have grown to add garlic in their cooking be it Western or Asian. A simple ingredient that does great to food.
