Steamed Grass Carp Belly With Finely Grated Ginger

I had a sudden craving for Grass Carp belly (   )  hahaha very funny, I am not pregnant but sometimesI do  have this weird craving for certain food.  There is only one place that sells grass carp in the wet market in town. And I have to be there early as it sold out fast. I managed to get a fairly big piece of belly.  Took it home and straight away steamed it with just salt and minced ginger for our lunch.  It was the best steamed fish belly I had for lunch :)  The fish belly is the best part of the fish , I don't know about you but I love fish belly.  My craving for grass carp belyy is satiated and now have a sudden craving for grilled salmon belly.....this will have to wait.  I saw some nice salmon belly in Jaya Grocer and regretted not having bought them . Nevermind, the craving for salmon belly will have to be put on hold till I go Jaya Grocer again and hopefully I can get hold of them for this grilled salmon belly craves of mine.

grass carp belly is best steamed simple with just salt
and minced ginger

I steamed the belly for just 7 -8 mins
in boiling steamer

love the smooth texture of the fish belly :)

  1. This was my father-in-law's favourite dish. I prefer with much more ginger and chili padi. Yums!
