Fish head steamboat is comfort food for many, especially on a rainy day. We’ve created a recipe so you can enjoy the dish from the comfort of your home.
The ‘hero’ of this dish is without doubt the fish, or in this case, the grouper. It needs to be very fresh to make the rich simmering broth and we’ve sourced ours from a local farm.
To top off, we’ve included a variety of homegrown vegetables like spinach, kai lan, nai bai, cai xin and oyster mushrooms.
If you are looking for fresh ingredients for your next meals, get yours from local farms. You can identify them by the “SG Fresh Produce” logo at supermarkets and online. Here’s to supporting our local farmers!
