Steamed Cod with Lily Bulb 清蒸百合鳕鱼片

The only fish my kids eat, Cod. I buy so much cod till the fishmonger always reserved the (tail) part I always buy for me. My kids know the differences if I bought other parts. :P I usually ask the fishmonger to debone for me and sometimes, slice for me too, just like for this case. I won't be able to do it myself. :P

  • 8 - 10 slices Cod
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese Cooking Wine
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Seed Oil
  • 5 slices Ginger, julienned
  • 8 slices Lily Bulb
  • 2 tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar 
  • 1/2 tablespoon Cooking Oil

How to do it:
  1. Place cod in a dish.
  2. Drizzle Chinese cooking wine and sesame seed oil on it.
  3. Top with ginger shreds and lily bulbs.
  4. Steam for 8 minutes, longer if cod slices are thicker.
  5. Remove and drain away the liquid.
  6. Heat cooking oil, light soy sauce and sugar together.
  7. Pour the hot soy sauce and oil over the fish.
  8. Serve.
Add additional 1to 2 tablespoon if water in step 6 if you like to have more sauce.  Season to taste.

  3. Hi,

    My boy oso love cod fish.... But how i can store cod fish as i dun do marketing everyday? In the market, cod fish already thaw. From what i noe, cod fish was frozen when shipping & fishmonger actually thaw it when selling....

  4. Oh! Cod fish... my all time favourite! This dish is delicious and healthy!

  5. You're welcome, Anon.

    Cuisine Paradise, Mee too!

    Bits of Taste, and easy to prepare too.

    Anon, You can order from the fishmonger before hand so they are prepare for you. If not, this is what I do, have a box laid with ice. Put a slotted tray on the ice. Then place the fish on the tray. Store it in the partial freezing corner. You can store this up to 2 days. You can replace the ice with ice pack if you like.

  6. oh wokking mum, i love your recipes! mmmh... cod fish is me favourite!

  7. Hi WM, I am cooking this tonight. Just curious why do you need step 5? Won't the juice make the dish sweeter if you keep it? And I like steam fish with lots of sauce so I can drizzle them over my rice generously, that's why I ask.

  8. Annie, you can keep the sauce if you like. I'm suggesting that step cos some people doesnt like the smell. And the sauce will be "cloudy". Not so nice for presentation wise. ;)

  9. hi wm, that's good to know. i'm gonna love this but will be using snapper fillet instead, coz that's what i have handy. cheers...

  10. Hope you and your family like this recipe. :)
