Steamed Cod Fish with Fried Garlic and Ginger – 清蒸鳕鱼

Cod fish is amazing! It is both nutritious and also a source of healthy fats. (we all love fatty meat don’t we?) That said, it sure is the healthier replacement for our favourite pork belly.

During the steaming process, the fats and the aroma are slowly released… cod fish meat has a delicate texture due to the high fat contents. This simple fish dish will even grab the attention of non fish lovers.

All you need to finish off this dish is a simple soy based sauce to bring out the sweetness!
