Thai Steamed Fish Recipe

Thai Steamed Fish Recipe

Ingredients :

500 g fish fillets
3 dried chilies
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 small onion, chopped

1/2 teaspoon chopped lemon rind
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 cup thick coconut milk

1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon rice flour
3 tablespoons finely chopped scallions, green leaves included
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves


Method :

Remove the fish bones and skins. Then cut the flesh into thin slices. Use a food processor to blend the salt, onion, chilies, garlic, lemon rind, turmeric, fish sauce and pepper into a smooth paste. Add a tablespoon of the coconut milk if more liquid is needed. Put the blended mixture in a large bowl, add the sliced fish and half the coconut milk and the egg. Mix well until most of the liquid has been absorbed by the fish. Line a heatproof dish with a large cabbage leaf and turn the fish into this. Mix rice flour with remaining 1/2 cup coconut milk and spoon over the fish. Sprinkle with the scallions and cilantro leaves. Cover and steam for 30 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and firm before serving. Serve as an accompaniment to be eaten with white rice.
