Steamed Red Snapper With Ginger Paste

After having had so much of those artery clogging deliciousness the past few days, I am now back to healthy diet…either I am trying to hookwink the body system or rather trying to make myself feel good after all the partaking of the sinfully rich birthday cake and the scrumptious lunch :))
Last nite dinner was just a simple affair , Steamed Red Snapper With Ginger Paste . Ohhh…this was so delicious and the natural sweetness of the fish with the aromatic ginger paste was really good. I agree that simplicity is deliciousness . A simple and easy dish that took just 10 minutes to prepare and you get a steaming hot delicious Steamed Red Snapper With Ginger Paste ! Good for those rushing for time, especially this Momsie when she has a baking assignment to do :p

I steamed fish fillet in 8 minutes...I want it just cooked
but if you want it more well done then 10 minutes would be just nice

a simple yet delicious steamed fish
in just ginger paste and sea salt

I added some celery leaves for garnishing :))

Steamed Red Snapper With Ginger Paste


1 piece of Red Snapper fillet
½ tsp of sea salt
1 thumb sized old ginger – chopped finely/blend into paste
½ tbsp of olive oil


Wash and clean the red snapper fillet and rub salt on both sides. Place the piece of fillet on a steaming plate and brush on the ginger paste onto the surface of the fish fillet. Add olive oil on the fish and steamed for 8 to 10 minutes over hot boiling water. Add some celery leaves or chinese parsley on the fish as garnishing. Serve hot .

Enjoy !
