    one more tip, trying the grooper fish "lapu-lapu" in our country, its more delicious

  4. jose faunillian

    she just drained the best part lol!when i cook this recipe, i wrap the fish in foil then steam it so that the flavor and juices wont go away

  5. Why it see so complicated
    Do not add corn starch
    Steaming time is too long

  6. yumeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    could you do a video on how to make a soy sauce? thanks for the video btw ^

  8. It means you might have steamed it way too long

  9. You shouldn't have drained the "excess water". It's the best part – the juices from the fish itself. Makes the gravy even more flavorful.

  10. what does the corn starch do to the fish?

    I'm not sure, but I think the cornstarch if you were pan frying the fish, but not steaming it

    Looks good, simple and delicious. I must try this. The fish looks like freshwater bass (largemouth or smallmouth bass). Bass is a tasty eating fish.

  14. Aww good old Chinese cooking like how my parents use to make this. 

  15. tks … simple & delicious ! I am going to eat steamed fish tomorrow. 

  16. Looks so delicious!
