Steam Frozen Pampano Fish

This is the third time I make a steam frozen Pampano fish. It’s very delicious and one of my favourite fish. This kind of fish does not have a lot of scales to scrap off, compare to other fishes. cleaning is not very hard. Once you get the hang of it, you can clean all kind of fishes.
When marinating the fish with salt, turmaric, soya sauce, garlic powder, garlic and onions outside and inside will make the fish taste better. You won’t notice any not fresh fish smell. There are some bones in the fish, but just be careful eating. The meats inside are very awesome and tasty. You would love this fish a lot once you get it fresh.
You can eat this fish with rice, with all the sauce that you can mix in the rice. It will taste so good. depending if you like the sauce or not. You can have this for lunch or dinner. It is best to eat the whole fish on the same day once it is steam, to get the freshness of the fish. Try making this steam fish and you will love it.
