Steamed Thai Fish

So much flavour and aroma is packed into this healthy dish of steamed Thai fish, with zesty citrus notes, garlic, chilli and coriander all taking a starring role. The tender trout fillets will carry the seasoning beautifully and by cooking the fish with the steam mode of a Panasonic combi microwave, you will preserve all the wholesome nutritional benefits as well.
Servings: 2


  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 to 2 small red chilli finely chopped
  • 1 lime zest and juice

  • 2 trout fillets approx. 140 g each
  • ½ red capsicum cut into julienne strips
  • 100 g snow peas sliced
  • 4 spring onions finely chopped
  • Coriander to serve


  • Combine the garlic, chilli, lime juice, zest and soy sauce together.
  • In a shallow dish pour the marinade over the fish and set aside.
  • When ready to cook, place the fish on the plastic trivet over the glass tray and place the capsicum, snow peas and spring onions around the sides of each fillet.
