Pregnancy recipe : Simple Steamed Fish

Here's a simple recipe I'd like to share. It's not meant specifically for pregnant ladies, but since pregnant women's throat may not accept a lot of spicy dishes(my experience)..steamed & soups go the other way round,  it usually gets down pretty well. And fish tastes great when steamed .I can't tolerate the taste of poultry much when I'm conceiving, so I go for fishes and Alhamdulillah, it tastes better than ever.

Left-Right, clockwise: Seabass, black pomfret, white pomfret.

  1. Fish (You could use either barammundi @ seabass (siakap) , black/white pomfret (bawal).Here I'd be using seabass.
  2. 1 big onion ~ finely sliced
  3. 1 turmeric root (thumb sized) ~ finely chopped
  4. 1 thumb-sized ginger~ finely chopped
  5. 3 cloves of garlic~ finely chopped
  6. Few strands of spring onions~ chopped coarsely
  7. Few  pinches of salt & pepper
 **You could add sliced chili, but in this recipe I am not using any as I don't fancy the taste**

  • Prepare the steamer, add water, bring to boil.
  • Put the fish onto a bowl/plate.
  • Just simply sprinkle all the ingredients on top of it. You may add a squeeze of lemon juice to dampen the fishy smell.
  • Place the bowl of fish into the steamer and wait for it to cook.
  • In next to just few minutes you're ready for a meal. Easy & yummy!
The end result looks something like this:

**To get rid of the fishy smell:  before cooking the fish, do soak it in lime + salt + water for few minutes. Rinse it off with water ,next it's ready  for cooking**

Enjoy! And do have a lovely meal with this recipe.. =)
