   Ingredients    :

   1         whole fish or fillet ( i use tilapia)
   2         tablespoon bean paste ( i use orchid brand)
   2         cloves garlic, minced
   1         stalk green onion, shredded into 11/2 inches
   2         sprigs cilantro, cut 11/2 inches
   5         slice ginger, minced
   2 - 3    chili padi, minced or cut small pieces
   1          teaspoon light soy sauce
   1          teaspoon sugar
   1/2       lime, squeeze out the juice
   1/2       teaspoon pepper powder
   3          teaspoon cooking oil
   pinch of salt

   Method   :

   Clean and rub the fish with a little bit salt, wipe the fish to dry and set aside.

   Combine the seasoning, bean paste, garlic, ginger, chili padi, light soy sauce, cooking oil, sugar, salt
   and lime juice together and mix well.

   Pour it over the fish evenly and steam it over briskly boiling water for 18 - 20 minutes. Do not over 
   steam the fish, the fish meat will become tough. You may use a chopstick to poke in the middle of the
   fish to check whether cooked. If the chopstick goes through easily means the fish is ready. 

   Remove from steamer and garnish green onion and cilantro over the fish and dash  in the pepper 
   powder before serve. Eat while its hot.
