Chinese Style Steamed Barramundi

Exams are near for school going kids. During this period of time, I would up their vitamins and fish intake. Fish being rich in Omega 3 is essential for brain health, which is most needed during this crunching moment.

If your child doesn't like fish, here's a starter fish that you can try, Barramundi from Kuhlbarra. Fresh from farm to your doorstep in 48 hours. Kuhlbarra's barramundi is antibiotic and hormone free with 5 times more Omega 3 than regular seabass, threadfin and grouper. It is known for its sweet, clean taste and firm texture. A good start with eaters who are resistant to fish.

Insulated box

The fish arrived chilled and nestled in ice within a sealed and insulated box for maximum freshness. Each portion of fish is vacuum-packed to preserve freshness and quality. It can stay fresh in your fridge for up to a week! Or freeze it if you plan to cook it beyond that.

And if you like cooking fish the Chinese steamed style, we have one recipe for share. Almost just like restaurant's taste.

Steamed Barramundi

Ingredients preparation

Chinese Style Steamed Barramundi
Ingredients (Serves 6-7)
1 kg Barramundi fillet portion
1/2 tomato (sliced) (optional)
3 tablespoon seasoned soy sauce for seafood
1 tsp Shaoxing wine
3 tablespoon oil
2 inch fresh ginger (julienned)
Scallion (julienned)

1. Wash and dry fish with paper towel.
2. Place fish on steam plate and spread tomato on top of the fish.
3. Steam fish for about 15 minutes.
4. While fish is steaming, combine soy sauce and Shaoxing wine in a small bowl. Set aside.
5. Heat oil in a small pan.
6. When fish is ready, discard excess water on plate. Spread ginger and scallion on top of the fish and pour hot oil directly over the ginger, scallion and fish. You should hear sizzling sound when pouring.
7. Drizzle the soy mixture over the fish.
8. Ready for serve!

Optional: I usually steam tofu and tomato along with fish for added protein and vitamins.

On the seasoned soy sauce for seafood, I use Lee Kum Kee. 

This is one extremely simply recipe, yet satisfying to the taste bud. Try it and let me know if you managed to achieve that restaurant like taste!

The fish was extremely fresh. So fresh that I didn't even pre-wash it with salt. There is absolutely no fishy or muddy taste. I'm much sure fussy eaters will easily include it as their food choice. My big kampong family loves fish loaded with ginger and scallion, so here's one you see crowded with it.
