  • 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, sugar, and sesame oil. Just let this boil and thicken with a slurry.
  • 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. Proudly raise your hand if you can say that you’ve served this Steamed Lapu Lapu Recipe in Soy Sesame Sauce dish to your family at least once! Be the hero-mom of the day and delight your household.
