Steamed Fish With Lemon and Sour Plum

This steamed fish recipe was shared by a friend. According to her, it is quite similar to Teochew style steamed fish minus several ingredients like mushrooms, pork and tofu.
With less ingredients, this steamed fish dish is nevertheless tasty. Cooked specially with freshly caught fish from my hubby’s fishing trip, it is awesome.  
Enjoyed every bit of the sweet freshness of the fish with the sourish and savoury sauce.
The next few posts that I'll be sharing are all fish dishes cooked using freshly caught fishes from my hubby's fishing trip.  These fishes were caught before Chinese New Year and we had a good time enjoying them even before the new year when others are going after fishes for CNY steamboat, hehehe!.  Thanks to you my dear, hubby for bringing home such lovely fishes for us.
1 whole fish – cleaned and keep whole
2-3 sour plums
Lemon juice to taste
Dash of shaoxing wine
2-3 stalks spring onions – cleaned and knotted
Some sliced spring onions and coriander leaves

  1. Stuff spring onions into the fish bladder.
  2. Spread sour plum over fish.

Hi Phong Hong, he really loves this hobby to the extend of buying a fishing boat. His friend bought one too after seeing his catch. These days they go fishing together but cook the fishes separately and differently ......

Hi Madeline, sure you can join us. I cooked a Malay style fish curry which was so good with one of the fishes but I only agak-agak the ingredients. I have added the photos in this post without the recipe.
