Steamed Tilapia with Spicy Tauchu Chicken Sauce

Another steamed fish post!! But this time, I used chicken,tauchu paste and spicy garlic sauce from LKK to make the sauce for this steamed tilapia fish!! Nothing elaborated!! This main dish is easy and simple to cook!! within 30 minutes our fish dish is ready for dinner!!For this dish I used boneless tilapia which come in frozen form..Most of the frozen boneless tilapia I bought here doesn't smell soil at all which is bless!! That the main reason I like to use boneless tilapia either for deep frying,curry or steaming..Of course, if I can get fresh fish daily I would prefer to have fresh fish rather then frozen fish but beggar can't be choosy ,right?


4-5 medium size frozen tilapia,thawed
3 inch ginger,peeled and shredded
1 small piece boneless chicken breast,about 150 gm,diced
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp chili in garlic sauce,or add extra if you prefer spicy(LKK brand or any brand)
1 tbsp fermented tauchu paste
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp soy sauce
4-5 tbsp water +1 tbsp corn flour
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste
handful cut cilantro

1:Place shredded ginger all over the fish in a stainless plate.Prepare steamer with water at high heat.When water rolling boil,place the fish onto the steamer.Steam for 15-20 minutes.
2:While the fish is steaming,hear medium skillet or pan with oil and minced garlic.Fry garlic until fragrant,then add in tauchu,chili in garlic sauce and diced chicken.Stir fry for 2-3 minutes before add in sugar,soy sauce and salt..Check the seasoning before add in corn flour mixture to thickening the sauce.
3:Remove steamed fish from steamer,pour the spicy chicken mixture sauce on the fish.Garnish with cut cilantro.Serve warm as main dish.
