    Prep Time

  • 4 People


  • 1.5 kg Lapu-lapu, cleaned
  • 1/4 cup Knorr Liquid Seasoning
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 pc onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 stalk leek, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 pc carrot, sliced into strips
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup light soy sauce
  • 2 -3 tbsp sugar
  • slurry (cornstarch dissolved in water) to thicken, as needed
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • Optional: Serve with steamed or garlic sauteed spinach or bok-choi on the side

  1. Begin by seasoning fish with Knorr Liquid Seasoning and pepper and then drizzle with sesame oil. Transfer the fish in a heatproof container and top it with onion, leeks, and carrots. Cook in a steamer until the fish is done. This will take about 8 to 10 minutes depending on the size of the fish. A one inch thick fish will cook for about 10 minutes.

  2. Let’s now make the sauce to go with the fish. In a pot, combine water, light soy sauce and sugar. Just let this boil and thicken with a slurry. Off heat, drizzle with sesame oil.

  3. Here’s a nice way of presenting your dish! Transfer the fish in a nice platter then pour the sauce over just before serving. Best served with steamed or garlic sautéed spinach or bok-choi on the side!
