Simple Steamed Garoupa (Grouper) Fish with Soya Sauce Recipe

I would normally buy a large garoupa fish from the market and get the fishmonger to cut it into chunks for me. The meaty grouper is suitable for a steamed dish because the fishy smell is not strong at all if the fish is fresh. Anyway, a meaty fish would be easier for my kids to eat rather than small ones that are full of bones. I would keep the Grouper fish head to cook curry and use the rest of the cut to cook other dishes. The easiest way to cook a grouper is to steam it. This dish takes me only 25 minutes to prepare, including the time for steaming.

Grouper cut, 1 pc
Soya sauce, 2 tablespoons
Sesame oil, 1 teaspoon
Garlic, 5 cloves, chopped finely and fried until golden brown
Ginger, 1”x2” size, cut into small slices or strips
Spring onions for garnishing
Chilly for garnishing (optional)

Put the fish in a steaming tray. Add soya sauce, sesame oil and ginger. Steam the fish at high heat for 20 minutes. Garnish with fried garlic and springs onions before serving. This dish is best eaten with steamed rice.

thanks for the info Pete, sometimes you see certain types of fish at the supermarket and are never sure which ones are good for steaming, etc. I'll remember this.

I love steamed garoupa! My mum likes to line a few slices of pork belly in between, so the fish would taste even more succulent.
