Big Size Steamed Siakap (Sea Bass).
We have been doing a lot of home cooking for the past 3 months, there are lots of photos to share, today will be sharing our favourite fish - Sea Bass. We will go to the town's big wet market to get the fish as it's way much cheaper than the normal grocery stores, and way fresher too! I got this one whole fish which is more than 1 ft long for just RM16 (USD 3.86).
We like the sea bass steamed, no other way can make the fish's freshness tasted better than steam it. Just a very simple ingredient, with a 2-3 clove of garlic, 3 shallots, some gingers, and some scallions. And don't forget to put some salts and water to make the fish soup tasty!
After steamed for 9-10 minutes (depends on the size of the fish), take out and put some fried shallots and oil on top, usually I will add a teaspoon of sesame oil to make the taste richer as well, and then it's ready!
A simple dish for a simple meal. Hope you like it!
