Simple & Healthy Steamed Pomfret (Bawal Putih, Tau Tey) Fish with Soya Sauce Recipe

There are many types of pomfret(family Bramidae) and the meaty type that you used to see in Chinese Restaurant are call Tau Tey. I came across some nice locally caught Tau Tey (white pomfret) at the wet market and bought three small size ones. They were very fresh and would make a good steamed dish. The pomfret (tau tey) flesh is very fine and sweet. I decided not to add too much seasonings so that the natural fish flavours would be retained.

Ingredients
Pomfret, 3 fishes
Light Soya Sauce, 2 tablespoons
Ginger, 6 slices
Tomato, 1 pc, cut into bite sizes
Garlic, 3 pips, chopped finely and sautéed until golden brown
Carrot, 1/2 , cut into small strips
Olive oil, 1 tablespoon

Pour the soya sauce and olive oil on the fish. Arrange the ginger, tomato and carrot on top of the pomfret. Steam at high heat for 25 minutes or until the fish is cooked thoroughly. Garnish with fried garlic and serve.

Wah! So many things on top? No photo of it after the steaming? White pomfret is too expensive these days. What dialect is tau tay? We call it pek chio...in our Hokkien dialect.
