Steam Seabass

Asian sea bass or barramundi (Lates calcarifer) is popular among the locals. You can buy fresh sea bass with better chance of getting the size desired according to the family need, early in the morning at NTUC Fairprice supermarket,  avoiding the crowd and long waiting time for the fish to be descaled and gutted. The sea bass from Malaysia cost around $8.00+ for 400grams, depending on the demand and season. I bought this sea bass fish for $4.50 that weighed 556 grams, quite a good “catch".

Score the sea bass, two on each sides. Season the fish lightly with sea salt. Prepare Shitake mushroom slices, leeks and cut ginger into stripes. Put in the mushroom slices and ginger stripes on top of the fish, drizzle of sesame, Hua Tiow Chiew (Rice Wine), splash of light soya sauce. Place the fish on the steamer and cover the lid. Steam for 20 minutes and add in the leeks.
