Teochew Steamed White Pomfret
Hey everyone, we have ourselves a classic dish to start the Lunar New Year!
Steaming White Pomfret is a popular Teochew cooking method as there is a lot of importance placed on the freshness of the ingredients. This method allows you to taste the naturally fresh sweetness of the pomfret when it’s cooked, which is something fish lovers will enjoy!
We choose to stuff the pomfret with ginger slices, while adding salted plums & vegetables together with mushroom strips to pair with the fish. It’s critically important to NOT steam the fish any more than 10 minutes – Overcooking it will end up with your dish losing it’s sweetness, so pay attention to the timing.
Otherwise, this is a fantastic and simple recipe to cook for dinners with the family. Give this recipe a go and enjoy the succulent sweetness of white pomfret!
