Steamed cod with green chilli salsa

Steamed Cod Fish Recipe With Green Chilli Salsa15 – Great Eastern Life

480g Cod (ask for the fish to be cut into four fillets, de-boned and the skin removed)
100g Green chilli
100g Shallots
10g Coriander
210ml Thai lime juice
40g Fish sauce
60g Sugar
Pinch of salt
4 Red chilli padis, for the garnish
1-2 Spring onions, for the garnish


1. If you have a steamer, heat it to 70°C. If not, boil water in a large saucepan and place a steaming rack over it

2. Finely chop the chilli, shallots and coriander with a sharp knife

3. Place the chopped chilli, shallots and coriander, lime juice, fish sauce, sugar and salt into a blender and blend until the consistency is a fine puree. If you don't have a blender, combine the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir until well mixed. Set aside

4. Season the cod fillets with a pinch of salt

5. Steam the fish for six to eight minutes. If using a saucepan and steaming rack, line the rack with greaseproof paper so that the fish doesn't stick. Remember to cover the fish with either another piece of greaseproof paper or a saucepan lid

6. For the garnish, peel a long strip from the spring onion – one strip for each piece of cod. Tie a spring onion strip around each cooked cod fillet, and knot it to hold it in place. Slide a chilli padi under each spring onion strip

7. Spoon the green chilli salsa into four serving bowls. Then carefully place the cod fillets on top of the salsa.
