Easy Asian-Style Low Fat Microwave Steamed Fish

Time: 12 mins


  • 2 (150 g) fish fillets (about 150g each I like to use Basa catfish or barramundi)
  • 2 garlic, cloves crushed
  • 2 teaspoons minced gingerroot
  • 2 teaspoons chili paste (like sambal oelek- can also use fresh, alter to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped coriander (cilantro)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • salt
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter (this will make enough for 2 fish, halve if only one of you wants peanut butter) (optional)


  • 1 Mix all marinade ingredients except peanut butter in a small bowl or cup. Taste to check for seasoning.
  • 2 If you are adding the peanut butter, add it to the mix and stir to create a thick paste.
  • 3 Spread over frozen or fresh fish fillets.
  • 4 Put fillets onto a plate with a microwave cover or place them in a shallow covered container (but make sure a little of the steam can escape). If fish are frozen, cook on high for at least 6-7 minutes (depending on thickness of fish). If thawed, about 4-5 minutes should be sufficient. This will change depending on your microwave so do check the fish by checking the colour in the centre of the fillet (it should be opaque).
  • 5 Serve with rice and a crisp salad.
