Thai Steamed Seabass

Posted By Kerri


While we were in China Town recently we picked up some fresh green peppercorns, Stephen bought some on a previous trip and used them to make steamed fish. We thought we’d do the same again last night as for some reason I didn’t eat the previous dish.

We used sea bass fillets and coated them in a marinade of soy sauce, oyster sauce, black pepper and garlic. The fish was placed in the steamer and topped with sliced onion, sliced spring-onions, julienned ginger and the fresh peppercorns. We then added some shredded cabbage on top and steamed the whole lot for about 20 minutes.

It worked very well, the flavours of the ginger and onions managed to penetrate both the fish and the cabbage on top. We steamed the noodles seperately as we didn’t have space for them in the steamer but the recipe said to add those on top of the cabbage. Perhaps we can do that next time.

  1. I’ve never seen fresh green peppercorns! They look beautiful and the dish looks very tasty. I’d love to try with tuna, like Stephen did in the first run. Did you use savoy cabbage? It looks like it on the photo.

    Thank you 🙂

    The peppercorns are tasty but I don’t recommend actually eating them, not if you want to taste the rest of the dish anyway! Stephen gave me that tip, I’m assuming he tried it last time round 🙂

    We used some leftover January King cabbage that we had from the weekend, Savoy would be lovely though I’m sure.

    A few years ago I ate a sprig of fresh green peppercorns in a dish in a Thai restaurant; they were very hot indeed. They impart a nice background warmth to this dish along with the ginger. I did try eating one and it wasn’t too hot; I think it had been cooked a lot more than the ones that I tried before.

  4. Thanks Kerri and Stephen, thanks so much for the green peppers, I’ve got some nice fish to try them out.
    And it’s so sweet of you to offer to get me some fresh yeast, I’ll let you know if I can’t find any at our local baker’s.

    You’re very welcome! I hope the fish turns out well 🙂
