Own Recipe – First Nonya Steamed Angkorli Fish Head on 8Apr2017

nonya steamed angkorli fish head

ate alone at home last evening on 8.4.2017.

didn’t want carbs, so decided to steam a small angkorli (sea bream) fish head.

Zai Shun 载顺 steamed shark’s cartilage

I wanted to do something different, so thought of the nonya steamed shark’s cartilage preparation at Zai Shun 载顺.

I did not have the recipe or know how Zai Shun 载顺 makes their nonya sauce, but I do have a good bottle of gimson nonya sauce.

Recipe

I used my usual steam fish recipe 2tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp mirin. and instead of 2 tsp light soy sauce, I added 1 tbsp gimson nonya sauce & reduced to 1 tbsp light soy sauce. & that was all.

I added chopped garlic. next time I would add also cut chilli padi & some scallions.

I estimated fish head about 500g, but to be sure I steamed for 11mins.

preparation was easy. all looked good, so just 11mins in the steam oven. 🙂

& the result was very good, not too salty, good nonya sauce flavour, not overpowering, fish was fresh & sweet. steaming was ok too, not overdone.

not quite the same wonderful taste & effect as Zai Shun 载顺’s steamed sharks cartilage, but a good enough preparation I can used to make a nice steamed fish/dish for my family & friends.
