Thai style Steamed Fish With Garlic, Lime, and Chilies is one of my favorite ways to steam fresh fish. This is a “must order” dish for me when I dine at any of my favorite Thai food restaurants that has it in their menu. The fish is usually served whole; but, here I have opted to use Barramundi fillets instead. This is a quick dish to prepare, it will take less than 20 minutes from prep, cook, to serve! Just make sure you have some steamed rice to go with it. Enjoy.
Steamed Fish With Garlic, Lime, and Chilies
2 Barramundi Fillets (230-250 g)
3 Cloves Garlic, chopped
3 Tbsp Freshly Squeeze Lime Juice
5 to 8 Thai Bird’s Eye Chilies, chopped
¼ Cup Chicken Stock or Water
1 Tbsp Fish Sauce
1 tsp Sugar
Scallions, for garnish
Coriander, for garnish
Lime Slices, for garnish
In a small bowl, mix the garlic, lime juice, chilies, stock or water, fish sauce, and sugar.
Arrange the fish in an oven or stovetop proof plate and pour the garlic mixture over the fish.
Steam the fish on high heat for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until the fish is fully cook.
Serve the fish immediately with the garnishes.
