Steamed redfish topped with ginger and green onions

This the 8th time I made steamed redfish topped with ginger and green onions. It is very simple to make. I decided to make 2 redfishes. Most of the time, when you buy frozen fish, it is not clean. You will need to clean it yourself. Cleaning fish is very simple when you get the hang of it. In a frozen bag of redfish come in different sizes. Some are big and others are small. You can choose which one yopu like to eat.
Look at how perfectly the 2 redfishes came out from the steamer. The colour is so nice with some sliced ginger and onions on the top. I like this fish a lot, and it tastes very delicious. It is one of my favourite fish. Steaming 2 fishes in the same plate, steam and finish at the same time. I sprinkle some green onions on top of the fish to make the colour look more brighter.
There are some bones in the fish, but be careful eating it. The best combination with this dish would be rice. With the sauce in the fish, you can mix it in the rice. The meat tastes very good with soya sauce on it and rice. Steaming fish is very healthy. I like eating steam fish.
Younger kids would need help from an adult picking the fish meat for them since it has bones in the fish. You can have this fish for lunch or dinner. It is best to eat the whole fish on the same day fresh. When you want to eat fish and have no idea what fish to make, you can consider making this redfish topped with green onions. A very delicious steamed fish to make. Try the recipe and enjoy.

When cooking the yu choy, I added some water. Close the lid. When the water starts boiling, I open the lid and stir a bit. Sprinkle some salt, garlic powder and put a bit of light soya sauce. Stir a bit. Taste a piece of yu choy to check if it is the desired texture. When the texture is right. Let it cook for a bit to ensure it is properly cooked.
