  • Serves



  • 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 leeks, sliced thinly
  • 1⁄2 pc carrot, sliced into strips
  • 1 cup water
  • 1⁄4 cup light soy sauce
  • 2-3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • slurry (cornstarch dissolved in water) to thicken, as needed

Let's Get Cooking

  • 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.
