Steamed Fish with Lime (Pla Neung Manao)

Steamed fish is always a staple dish on our dining table as it is a healthy and simple dish to prepare and of course minimal cleaning which I like hehehe….I knew this dish will be well accepted therefore I slightly increase the seasoning sauce so that it is enough to go around :D 

Simple concoction but yet taste so flavorful and appetizing! :D 

Recipe source : Hot Thai Kitchen
  • 1 Whole Seabass, approx 500gm (butterflied the fish)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 4 tbsp fish sauce
  • 5 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 3 tsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped garlic
  • 1 chilli, chopped
  • 3 pickled garlic, chopped
  • 2 tsp pickling liquid from pickled garlic
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped, reserved stems lining
  • 2 stalk lemongrass, cut into halves

  1. Clean the fish thoroughly and pat dry with a kitchen paper (I got the fishmonger to butterfly the whole fish). Place lemongrass and cilantro stems on a steaming plate. Place the fish over. Smear the sesame oil over the fish.
  2. Steam the fish over preheated steamer on high heat for 7-10 mins, depending on the thickness of the fish.
  3. Meanwhile prepare the sauce by combining fish sauce, lime juice, chilli, chopped garlic/pickled garlic, sugar and pickling liquid together. Adjust taste accordingly.
  4. When the fish is done, combine chopped cilantro with sauce. Pour the sauce all over the fish. Serve immediately.
