Steamed lapu lapu - Chinese-style


300 g lapu-lapu (grouper fish)
1 tbsp sesame oil
3 tbsp lemon juice extract (you may use calamansi juice, if you want)

5 tbsp kikoman soy sauce
2 tbsp spring onion, cut into half inch length
coriander, chopped

How to make chinese-style steamed lapu lapu

  1. Clean the lapu-lapu and rub it with salt and pepper.
  2. Place it on a steamer (with crushed ginger in the boiling water) and let it steam for about 30 minutes.
  3. While steaming the fish, mix the soy sauce, lemon juice extract, honey and sesame oil in a bowl. Set aside.
  4. Remove the fish from the steamer and put it on a plate.
  5. Sprinkle the fish with spring onion, coriander and ginger.
  6. Slowly pour the sauce mixture (lemon, soy, honey, sesame oil) all over the fish.
  7. On another pan, overheat the cooking oil then pour it over the fish to sear the ginger and spring onion.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
Note: This is a re-post from my other blog. However, I tried it again recently but instead of using sesame oil, I used olive oil (ran out of sesame oil, that's why). It's still good, I just don't know if it can still be called Chinese-style...hehe.

Servings: good for 1-2
Cost: Around 250 Php (updated as of June, 2019)
