Fragrant Thai Style Steamed Salmon Block

Comes to steamed fish sauce, this Thai Garlic Sauce is always my favourite when I like something sourish, sweet, spicy and fragrant.  It is also so easy and simple yet the result is awesome and very appetizing.
Salmons blocks were sold at the supermarket at quite reasonably priced  [RM 25.00/kg] before Christmas.  Certain times, it could be cheaper than this. Bought some to steam them with the fragrant and tasty garlic dressing that costs only RM 5.00.

This time I added some chopped lemongrass and the sauce was so good, very tasty especially when the fish was fresh.
Very appetising dish and sauce was so good with rice.
2 pieces salmon block - scaled and cleaned
some chopped coriander leaves or spring onions
Steaming Sauce Ingredients [combine together]
4 big cloves of garlic - finely chopped
1-2 stalks lemongrass [white part only] - finely 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. Scale and clean fish. Place on steaming plate.
  2. Combine the sauce ingredients.
  3. Pour over fish just before steaming.
  4. Steam over high heat for 10 minutes or until cooked.
  5. Remove from steamer. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
  6. Serve immediately.

    Kimmy, your Thai Style Steamed Salmon looks good. I seldom buy salmon because it is pricey. But once in a while I do buy it and mostly like to grill. Must try steaming it one day.

    Hi Phong Hong, you must try steaming salmon. The sauce is appetising and the fish is juicy if steamed to perfection. I can slurp up all the steaming sauce.
