Steamed Garoupa Fish Belly

You know the last few days , I had this this sudden craving for steamed fish belly. To me the belly is the best part of the fish :)  Managed to get 2 pieces of Garoupa fish bellies from Canning market .  I paid RM13 for two small pieces of bellies and just because I had this stupid cravings or else I would not even want to pay it :p  Anyway, called it menopause cravings or whatever you like, I really craved for these bellies. I steamed them plain with ginger and its juices and guess what ? I had two bowls of rice !!! Supposed to be off rice but this craving really upset everything :p  Alright...so I pampered myself and steamed this for dinner. 

love the smooth texture of the belly...
so fresh and sweet

lots of chopped ginger and juices
and sea salt truly brings out the sweetness of the
fish belly

Steamed Garoupa Fish Belly


2 pieces of Garoupa fish belly
1 knob of old ginger ( chopped fine and squeeze juice )
1 tsp of sea salt,
1 tsp of olive oil

dill for garnishing


Wash clean the fish belly.  Place the fish belly on a steaming plate.  Rub sea salt evenly on the fish belly. Chop the ginger finely and squeeze out the juices onto the fish belly. Add a tsp of olive oil.  Heat up the steamer and when the water boils, steam the fish belly for 7 to 8 minutes.  Take out and garnish with dills. Serve hot with rice.

Enjoy !

    1. Yes, it is dill...very fragrant on fish and bread :) you try to get a pot of dill when you go nursery to get your other plants. Try growing rosmary, thyme and dill.

  2. Ooh! That looks simple and delicious.
