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!

I have never eaten fish like that, must be yum

Yes it was yummy! Thank you!

Definitely my favourite. Steamed steamed is my go-to. And it sounds like Steem too. Lol...

Simple ingredients can do wonders. I love steamed fish as I truly agree that you could definitely taste the freshness.

It looks beautiful! And the recipe seems so simple and delicious. I really love simple recipes as well. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you for stopping by too @justatouchfey!

Oh this looks delicious @joelai :) I could eat this every day! Steaming the fish is so much healthier and it preserves the moisture in the fish, served with a wonderful salad and there is nothing better!

That's what we have been doing, served with lots of green salads!

Can tell that this is obviously many's favourites...ah, how I miss this dish at home.

You'll be home soon right?

Not really...I can only go home during the long semester break, because I don't know who decided that having a mid term exam directly after our Raya holidays is a good idea.

So yes, a time of cramming...

Hahaha... Lots of 'brlliant' miniters running around the country lately.

I can almost smell and taste the garlic and garlic. Plus the presentation made it look delish!

Thank you so much @leeart, I'm glad you like it!

Oh, that looks so good! I love fish and could eat it several times every week! 😋

Me too @thekittygirl, I like it this way!
