Ideas on how to steam a fish

Steamed fish is a very healthy diet. You do not add fat if you steam fish and you can choose from a fan or a bamboo steamer. Rolled fillets of plaice, sole and trout are good for steaming, because they stay moist and retain their shape perfectly. Halibut, salmon, cod and also do well in this easy recipe.
The steam fish, you need several inches of boiling water in a saucepan and add the craft of the top fit. Make sure it is not touching the water. Cover with tight-fitting lid and steam the fish until cooked.

A piece fillet of trout, lemon sole, Dover, or sold seven or eight minutes, provided that weighs about ten ounces. Smoked salmon, white fish and seafood steaks or fillets, weighing about six grams of goods between eight and ten minutes to cook to perfection.

You can steam a whole fish in a job. Put a rack a few inches above the bottom of the pan and two inches of water, so water to come halfway up the leg rack. Put the cleaned fish on a plate and put it in the pan. Good coverage of the pan (do not let the fish touch the lid) and simmer in water. Check the fish after fifteen minutes.

Another way to make a few slices of lemon and fresh herbs to add to the fish body cavity and loosely wrap the fish in parchment paper to create a pouch. The fish steams in the bag and the lemon and spice of the fish meat with a delicious flavor.
