Tom Yam Style Steamed Siakap October 13, 2006

Posted by Angeleyes in Fish, Halal, Seafood, Simple Steaming.

We normally see the small siakap fish sold at the market but not those really big type which were from deep sea. Last year, we went to dine at one of the restaurant near by our house and was introduced to this deep sea siakap fillet which was really big and juicy. So, we went around hunting for this fish in the wet markets around our area and was lucky we found them!

I will usually make simple steaming with just ginger and chillies but as I like hot and sour stuff so went on to try this tom yum style instead. The siakap fillets goes well with this style too….



  • 2 pcs Siakap fillets
  • 2cm Lengkuas (blue ginger)
  • 1 stick Lemongrass
  • Kaffir lime leaves (use the young sprouted leaves)
  • 4 cloves Garlic (chopped)
  • 2-3 Chili padi (if you preffer hot stuff…put more!)
  • 2pcs Kaffir lime or normal lime juice
  • Light soy sauce


  1. Cut/chop all the ingredients and sprinkle on the fish fillets, a few dash of light soy sauce, all the lime juice and add a little water and steam! It is that easy! 🙂
  2. Remember to check the fish before serving.

jazz, some people don’t like the smell of kaffir leaves and lemongrass so can op those out but then it won’t be authentic Thai if without these stuff!
