Hi, I’m Mei. I love this website with its beautiful color scheme, images and good recipes. You mentioned in the Steamed Fish recipe that it can also be steamed with fermented soybean paste. I do steam my fish this way. I’m contributing this recipe and would be happy to know whether you do it the same way as I. Thank you.

Steamed Fish with Fermented Soybean Paste

1 big or 3 medium-sized fish (any fish – red snapper, etc)
1½ tablespoons fermented soybean paste
2 chilies
4 cloves garlic
2 shallots
2.5 cm ginger
Some lime or lemon juice
1 tablespoon sugar
2 stalks spring onion
Some fried garlic oil

1. Blend or pound soybean paste, chilies, garlic, shallots and ginger until fairly fine.
2. Mix blended ingredients with some lime or lemon juice and sugar. (Add sugar according to taste)..
3. Place fish on steaming plate.
4. Spoon blended soybean paste mixture all over fish.
5. Steam for 10 minutes or until fish cooked.

Thanks Mei, for sharing your Steamed Fish with Fermented Soy Bean Paste recipe.

I do steam it this way but sometimes I fry the soy bean paste. The soy bean paste is fried with some garlic and chopped "extra-hot" small chilies. Add sugar - quite a bit - to balance the saltiness of the bean paste. Then spoon the fried paste over the fish.

Frying the soy bean paste enhances the flavor but steaming with unfried soybean paste is nice too and saves time.

I recommend some liquid added to the steaming for those who prefer some sauce with the fish.
