Thai steamed fish recipe with lime, garlic and lemongrass


Share post:

In this video, I will share my method of preparing a Thai-inspired steamed fish recipe, which I modified from the recipe we used in my previous restaurant.

The key to this recipe is the sauce, which comprises a blend of saltiness, sweetness, sourness, and spiciness. The good news is that making this dish is relatively straightforward, and no complicated techniques are involved. All you need is to have all the ingredients ready and follow the step-by-step instructions below, and you will make it just like those served in Thai restaurants.

(Please download the recipe and read the full details at https://tasteasianfood.com/thai-steamed-fish/ )

Ingredients A
1 whole fish (1kg) with guts and gills removed
3 stalks of lemongrass, white parts only, bashed

Ingredients B
1/2 cup chicken broth
4 tbsp palm sugar
1 head of garlic, chopped
4 bird’s eye chilies, chopped
4 sprigs of coriander (cut the stem for the sauce, leaves to garnish)
4 tbsp fish sauce
4 tbsp lime juice
Chopped red chilies, lime slices, and coriander leaves to garnish

Steam the fish
– After cleaning the fish, make three diagonal incisions at the thickest part of the fish on both sides.
– Insert the bashed lemongrass into the fish’s cavity before steaming, and only use the white part of the lemongrass to get the best results.
– Place a chopstick on the steaming tray and put the fish on top.
– Bring some water to a boil in the wok and place a trivet inside.
– Steam the fish over medium-high heat for 8 to 10 minutes to steam a 1 kg fish. The fish is cooked if it is no longer translucent and the flesh becomes flaky.
Prepare the flavourful Thai-style sauce
– Bring a small pot of chicken broth to a boil.
– Add sugar to the hot broth and stir until fully dissolved.
– Chop garlic, chilies, and coriander stems and add them to the pot. Cook for 15 seconds.
– Finally, add fish sauce and lime juice.
To serve
– Discard the water from the steaming plate as it has a fishy smell.
– Place coriander leaves on the serving plate and put the fish on top.
– Drizzle the sauce on top of the fish
– Garnish with coriander leaves, lime twists, and chopped red chilies.
