Steaming fish without a steamer

tags: | |

If you are without a bamboo (or any other type of steamer) and you want to steam fish, don’t despair. Simply bring to the boil an inch or so of water in a large saucepan.

Place a trivet (or any improvised device on which you can lay a plate) in the middle of the saucepan. This makes a perfect stand for a plate. Lay your fish on the plate, season, steam and serve. Remember to drain the water from the plate before bringing it to the table.
