This is a quick, simple and healthy recipe for a weekday dinner. I used basa fillet but you can use any type of fish fillet. Despite this recipe having only a few ingredients, the combination of soy sauce, fish sauce and sesame oil gives a very nice flavour to the fish fillets. You can serve this with a bowl of steam rice.

Steamed Fish Fillet with Spring Onion and Lemon

  • 2 x 100g fish fillets
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 strip of spring onion, finely chopped
  • Small piece of ginger, crushed
  • 2 slices of lemon
  • Place fish fillets in a plate that will fit inside a steamer.
  • Pour soy sauce, fish sauce and sesame oil over the fish fillets, then sprinkle with spring onion and ginger.
  • Place 2 slices of lemon on top.

    This sounds healthy and delicious. It seems like so many steamed dishes are bland... but this one doesn't sound bland at all. Thanks for sharing.

    I never thought to put the whole plate set up as yours was in the photo, with everything ready to go! So super easy, healthy and delicious with a simple and perfect combo, of the soy sauce, fish sauce, lemon, and spring onions. Oh, and the sesame oil, well, that is a "must"...such great addition:D

    What a great idea for steaming fish, I would never have thought to place a plate in the steamer. I bet it works so well for really flaky fish :)

    Steamed fish is tasty and healthy! It's a little harder to get fresh fish (not previously frozen) here in the Mid West but when I do find it, I like to steam it too :)
