Ikan Kukus

I have been abandoning this blog I know. But I am aware of the traffic to this blog. Thank you my dear readers for keep dropping by. As for that it makes me drag myself to update this food blog :-)

The reason for my absence is due to my latest passion in sewing. Not only that, I have spent more time constructing another blog... Yes, another blog. I can't cope with 2 but now I have 3!! ;-)

My latest blog is my online shop. Do give a hop... Who knows you may like something there ;-) Here's the URL

Now back to the food. I'm sharing a steam fish recipe I got from a book. If I'm not mistaken it was Chef Wan's. Tried & my girls attacked like vultures. Hehehe... Here we go.

Clean the fish & put aside. I normally purchase cut fish. Easy to store & most importantly my steamer cannot fit a whole fish.

Slice 1 piece of torch ginger (bunga kantan), 1 lemon grass, 5 red chillies, 2 pieces of kaffir lime leaves (daun limau purut), 1 cm ginger, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 stalk of spring onion (daun bawang) & a stalk of coriander leaves (daun ketumbar).

Add in 1 1/2 tbs of sugar, 3 - 3 1/2 tbs of lime juice, half tsp of anchovies powder & 3/4 tsp of corn flour. Mix evenly.

Pour the sliced ingredients onto the fish (I used 2 types of fish)

Steam for an hour

The steam fish is ready

Happy New Year!
