Fresh Black Tilapia
FRESH BLACK TILAPIA
Some thinly sliced ginger (see pic, matchstick size)
Some thinly sliced scallion
Some thinly sliced lemongrass
Some thinly sliced fresh red chilli
Some black beans (get it from your local asian grocery store)
Slice the fish (see pic) and place ginger, chili, lemongrass, cilantro, scallion, and sprinkle, black beans, salt pepper on top.
Drizzle with light soy sauce, oyster sauce and dried shallots and dried garlic (or use finely chopped garlic).
Place fish in a plate (oven safe preferred). Pour water in a big pot (big enough for the plate -- use something for the plate to sit on) Steam in water bath for about 25 mins (high heat).
Cover the fish in aluminiuum foil if you like.
I don't cover mine. Mine is always kept open becuase my pot has a lid.
Ask for your fish to be descaled and cleaned before you take it home. Enjoy!
