Steamed Fish

Hurry Burry Steamed Fish
This is a recipe that I make when I am in a hurry and have very little time to spend in the kitchen.  It's a great way to also use up the odds and ends in my vegetable basket and serve up a satisfying, delectable meal during the week or even when you have unexpected guests;

The Recipe:

500 gms boneless fish, cubed; salt and pepper to taste; 3 spring onions, chopped; 1 inch piece ginger, grated; 2 tbsp thin soy sauce; 2 tbsp olive oil; 5 cloves garlic, minced; 2 dried red chillies, broken into bits; 1/2 tsp brown sugar; 1 medium sized green capsicum cut into strips.

Wash and drain fish.  Season with salt and pepper and  1/2 tsp sugar to taste.    Add half of the ginger, garlic, spring onions, oil  and soy sauce and mix well so that all the fish is seasoned.  Place the fish in a heat resistant dish and steam  in a pressure cooker or any large dish for 20 minutes.  Keep warm.

Heat remaining oil in a non stick pan and stir fry the remaining ginger, garlic, red chillies, salt and capsicum  for a few minutes.   Add the remaining soy sauce and spring onions and stir to combine.  Pour over the fish and serve hot with white rice or kichdi.
