Notes

The liquid in the dish resulted from steaming the fish is usually quite fishy so it's best to discard it and add new seasonings on the steamed fish. It is important to bring the water in the steamer to a boil before you put the fish in. Steamed fish should be just cooked and not dry. Always use a fish that is really fresh for this dish.
