1 red chilli – sliced
2 tbsp kiam chye (salted mustard green) – cut into strips and soaked in hot water
Aluminium foil

Sauce Ingredients

11/2 tbsp light soy sauce
50 ml water (adjust to your preference, if you want more broth, add more water and soy sauce)
2 small rock sugar

1) Place fish on the aluminium foil and place 3 slices of ginger inside the cavity of the fish and arrange mushrooms, kiam chye, chilli, ginger, plums on top of the fish. Place tofu and tomato at the side.
2) Pour the sauce ingredients over the fish and wrap up the aluminium foil and place on a steaming plate.
3) Steamed over rapidly boiling water for 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the fish.Fish should be cooked when the eyes popped out or test with a toothpick. It should come out clean when you insert to the meaty part.
