Hot and Spicy Garlic Steamed Fish

Friday, December 24, 2010

Recently we had been ordering steamed fish every time we had our dinner outside. Thus, I wanted to look for a recipe for steamed fish for this special dinner as well. In the past, I had always felt that it is a challenge to prepare fish dishes. Not to say that I had mastered the skill, but I am starting to be more confident nowadays with steaming fishes after a few try till date. So Hubby had personally hand picked the Siakap fish from Tesco the other day, so we will be having steamed fish as well for Winter Solstice dinner.
