Simple Steamed fish
Place cleaned whole or a fillet of fish on crushed ginger on a steaming plate.
If using whole fish place some ginger in the belly too.
Steam for 8-10 minutes depending on the size and thickness of fish.
While fish is steaming, heat 2 tbsp of oil and fry 2 tbsp. each of sliced shallots, minced ginger and garlic (separately).
Lift out the shallots, ginger and garlic from oil when golden and fragrant.
Add 1 tbsp. each of light and thick soy sauce into the same hot oil, let it sizzle and off the heat.
Pour soy mixture over fish, sprinkle some sliced chillies on top and steam for another 2-3 minutes.Serve fish garnished with the fried shallots, ginger and garlic.

Our simple dinner ended with a special dessert from my brother, Tet Mui. He and his family went to Macau (thanks to Air Asia) for a holiday and brought home some delicious tidbits like this crispy roll with sea weed and meat floss.
