Another steamed fish post!! This time I steamed flounder!!This fish has the finest and softer meat texture that I loved! Of course, steamed fish method is a healthy method of cooking compare with deep fried fish method but for me I likes both method of cooking as long as it's FLOUNDER or fish!! To make the flounder taste fantastic,I fried some shallot,ginger and garlic to top on that fish after steamed!! On top of that I heated the pan with some oil at high heat for few minutes then add some soy sauce and sake to combine together before pour on the fish..This method of oil heating with soy sauce and sake taste better rather then just pour soy sauce and sake on the fish..Honestly, I can eat this type of fish everyday!! Viola!!
1/2 portion flounder,cleaned(if the flounder size is big just cut into 1/2 but it's just moderate size use the whole fish)
2 inch ginger,peeled and shredded fine
2 tbsp minced garlic
2 shallot,peeled and sliced thin
3-4 tbsp oil
2-3 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp sake or wine if you don't have sake
1 red long pepper,sliced
handful of cut cilantro
1:Prepare steamer with water at high heat.Place flounder and sliced red pepper in a stainless steel plate.When water rolling boil,place flounder in the steamer and steam for 15-20 minutes..If your fish is bigger steam longer.
2:Meantime,heat skillet with oil at medium heat.Add in shallot ,ginger and garlic,fry until golden brown,dish out and set aside.Use the same skillet heat at medium heat,when the skillet is hot enough ,immediately add in soy sauce and sake.Remove skillet immediately from heat.
3:Remove fish from steamer plate to your desire plate.Pour soy sauce mixture on the steamed flounder before top with fried ginger,shallot,garlic and cilantro.Serve warm immediately.
