It doesn't help that there is no proper market per se where everyone gets their groceries except for the supermarkets. Another thing about the supermarkets is that they emphasise accordingly to the suburb it is located in i.e. where we stay, we get only a few fish in fillet form (presumably not many people around the area eats fish) but a supermarket in Sunnybank where the asian population is, has a larger variety of asian vegetables, whole fishes and a larger aisle for asian sauces and condiments.
So one lucky weekend when our friend fetched us out to Sunnybank; i was at the display of fishes and i looked at the rainbow trout then looked at the Wife and asked "you want steam fish?", half expecting an answer like "so troublesome, don't want..", she replied "sounds like a pretty good idea, long time no steam fish".
So steam fish it was.
Clean the fish, cut some spring onions and ginger to stuff into the cavity of the fish and some salt, put it into a steamer for 12-15 minutes (for a 500-600 gram) fish.
Heat the soya sauce with some sugar and some sesame oil and drizzle over the steam fish when it comes out of the steamer. Garnish with more spring onions and ginger.
A simple steam fish to be served with white rice. Can't imagine what took me that long to try steaming fish.
