Steamed Silver Or White Pomfret For Dinner

We woke up to a beautiful Monday morning! Due to the wet season, we have not been walking regularly. This was one of the dry morning, so we got ready and was out of the house by 6.40 am.
Dawn sky
After our morning walk and breakfast, we went home. We had an appointment for the UniFi installation. We have finally decided to switch from the Streamyx to one of the UniFi packages.
It took us a long time to decide but finally we did it. The installation was fast.

My neighbour gave me a white or silver pomfret one late evening and I kept it in the freezer. I totally forgot about it until hubby reminded me of the fish.
This is the white or silver pomfret from my neighbour. It was nicely cleaned and frozen when given to me. So I just thawed and rinsed it and it was ready for cooking. I rub a little salt over the whole fish. Cut some old ginger into strips and steamed it over boiling water. It was quite a big fish, bigger than my palm with wide spread fingers. I set my kitchen timer to 15 minutes.
After steaming for about 12 to 13 minutes, I poured a mixture of light soya sauce, scallop sauce, sesame oil and Chinese cooking wine over the fish. I let the fish steam for another 1 to 2 minutes until the kitchen timer gave off the alarm.
Before serving, I garnished the fish with spring onions from my garden and crispy pre-fried onions. The fish was steamed just right and thanks to our neighbour, the fish was very delicious.
While the fish was steaming, I stir-fried this dish. This is Chinese cabbage and carrot stir fried with dried prawns and garlic with a little sea salt and some water. We ate the above 2 dishes with some steamed rice.
And now I end this post with a beautiful yellow rose.
Wishing all my readers a beautiful and a blessed new week!

Praise the Lord! For all who fear God and
trust in him are blessed beyond expression.
Yes, happy is the man who delights in doing his commands.
(Psalm 112:1, The Living Bible-TLB)
