Recipe's preparation

  1. Sauce Method In a clean dry bowl 

    Garlic, ginger and chili Chop 2-3 sec/speed 7 Scrap down bowl Add oil sauté 2min, 100 degrees, speed 1 , MC OFF Add soya sauce & honey, cook 2min , 100 degrees, speed 1, MC OFF

    Then set aside (keep warm in Thermoserver if you have one)

     

    Fish Method No need to clean bowl for the next part

    Prepare the fish, assuming you have had the fish scaled and cleaned if using a whole snapper, rinse and pat dry with paper towel.  Using a sharp knife, make 2 or 3 diagonal cuts in the thick flesh part of the fish both sides.

     

    Prepare banana leaf, wash, dry and cut into shape of an oval to fit comfortably in top Varoma tray. (if no banana leaf use baking paper if you like) Place banana leaf on tray, place fish on top. Note: If fish tail overlaps important to trim to ensure the top of the Varoma lid closes.  Place a few slices of lemon and sprigs of coriander inside belly of fish.

    If you are not using a whole fish, follow recipe same with portions of fish.Season with salt & pepper. Using scales measure water in bowl, add ginger & salt to bowl to flavour rice while cooking. Using the scales again, measure rice in basket, IMPORTANT TO RINSE RICE, then place basket in bowl. Place bowl lid on without MC Place Varoma dish on bowl lid, (bottom tray of Varoma empty, fish sits in top tray). NOTE: You may wish to steam some asian greens in the bottom but don't fill this dish as you need the steam to cook the fish and you wouldn't add the greens for the whole amount of time, cook greens according to your liking. Close with Varoma lid. Cook Varoma temp /16 min/speed 3 Check fish after 16 min (fish cooking time will vary slightly depending on weight of fish) don't over cook it. Fillets will cook quicker. Remove fish & rice if ready and keep warm in oval thermoserver poor over the sauce.

     

    TIP for plating up: if you have extra Banana Leaf, cut again to size and have on a platter and then place cooked fish on fresh leaf and poor over sauce and garnish with extra springonions, chilli and corriander. 

    Use for entertaining as canape on asian spoons: Take a small amount of rice, flake the fish top with a small amount of sauce, garnish with spring onion slice, coriander slice and chilli slice. its a reall winner, please try it and post your sucess. enjoy we do every time we have it.

    Submitted by momoyeeyee on 10. January 2017 - 06:24.

    5 Stars! I am Chinese and have been having steamed fish all my life -- one of my favourite home cooked dishes. And now I can make it in my TM5! As a Chinese, I can testify to the authenticity of the sauce, however I did make the following alterations:

    - left out garlic (from learning this same dish from my grandmother, she never used garlic when steaming fish. Neither lemon -- that's essentially a Western tradition)

    - substituted honey for half a teaspoon of sugar. I would have thought 60g honey would make it way too sweet

    - swapped 60g light soy sauce for 45ml light soy sauce and 20ml water

    The sauce with the above adjustments was in my opinion very authentic.

    As mentioned, I left out lemon when steaming the fish. As Chinese we never steam fish with lemon. We also never serve lemon with fish nor sqeeze lemon juice on top of our fish!

    For my 410g piece of fish, 16min in the varoma was fine, though next time I will try 15mins.

    Thank you for a fantastic recipe!

  • Hi Jimmy, no real changes

    Submitted by LindaTMX on 2. December 2016 - 18:04.

    Hi Jimmy, no real changes maybe a bit more water as bowl is bigger but do make sure you really rinse the rice. The only negative comment I have found was about the rice, the person may have not rinsed it well enough and then yes it can be dry.  I do throw some fresh greens in for the last few minutes of cooking time...s omething like Bokchoy or brocoli is really nice too.  Hope you enjoy it, we love it and we use it on chicken fillets, vege's and basically it comes out great and reduce chilli slightly for little kids and its a real winner.

    This is an amazing recipe. I had this with salmon fillets. Make sure salmon is scaled and pin boned. Fish is moist and perfectly cooked. The dressing is the finishing touch and could be used on steamed vegies only with rice.

    Submitted by Christine E on 17. September 2015 - 09:41.

    We particularly like the sauce in this recipe (great for pouring over brocolli or Asian veggies, as well as the fish and the rice). Also, cooking fish this way whether it's whole or filleted means the clean up is dead easytmrc_emoticons.) Thanks Linda! By the way, I used scrunched up and dampened baking paper under the fish in place of the banana leaf, which worked fine.

    I'm sorry you didn't get the results you had hoped for. We started making this regularly when I first got my TM31. I have had it featured in cooking classes as well so not sure why yours didn't work out, did you rinse the rice well ? That's the only thing I can think of ? Linda

    Submitted by LizzyLoc on 25. June 2014 - 22:55.

    I used 600 grams of snapper fillets and they took 20 minutes to cook. I kept them warm in thermo server whilst I continued to steam brown rice which needed the extra time with veges for another 15 minutes. This meal was delicious especially with the sauce.

    thanks everyone for your feedback, its nice to know everyone is enjoying it.  We use all types of fish and sometimes chicken for this recipe and we also use this for canapes, what we do for entertaining is use those asian spoons, scoop a small portion of rice on spoon, flake some fish, spoon a little of the sauce ontop and then top with coriander, chilli and spring onions.

  • 5 stars isn't

    Submitted by arna on 13. February 2014 - 09:55.

    5 stars isn't enough!!!

     

    This is a senstional recipe!! My husband loves a lot of the main meals that I have made in the thermomix, but has declared this one as the standout favourite. I couldn't get whole snapper, so I bought 2 big fillets and placed them on top of eachother with the lemon and coriander in between. They weighed the 500g and took 20 mins to cook to perfection. With the convenience of no bones or head, this is definitely how I will do it again in the future. Thank you so much for posting this recipe, we loved it.
