2 tbsp hot water
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp sugar

For garnishing
Chopped corianders and spring onion


  1. Clean fish and pat dry with kitchen paper towels. Place ginger slices on a steaming tray, place fish on top of ginger slices. Steam fish over rapid boiling water for 10mins (start steam fish once water is boiling). Discard water and ginger from the steaming tray, remain fish on the tray.
  2. Mix all steamed fish sauce in a small mixing bowl, mix well and set aside.
  3. Heat 4tbsp cooking oil in a frying pan, sauté garlic till slightly brown. Scoop 1tbsp of hot oil into steamed fish sauce. With the remaining oil and garlic, add in chopped preserved radish, add 1/2tsp dark soy sauce, frying till crispy and aromatic.
  4. Pour steamed fish sauce over the cooked fish and sprinkle with the crispy radish and garlic and add garnishing before serving.
