Huiji Steamed Pomfret With Osmanthus

Silver Pomfret (Yin Chang - 银鲳鱼) or White Pomfret (白鲳鱼) is one of the seafood choice which is popular among the Teochew (a dialect group). And usually for a Teochew family like us, we love to include preserved salted vegetables, tomato and sour plums in our Steamed Silver Pomfret dish. But since I am re-create this dish for Chinese New Year, I decided to add in some Osmanthus flower which has a distinctive fragrance that enhance the flavour of this dish.


HUIJI STEAMED POMFRET WITH OSMANTHUS


During Chinese New Year, it is a must have for each household to have "Fish" as one of the auspicious dish which symbol "abundance" of good luck and fortune. And when it comes to fish, the best way is to either Steam or Poach whereby using the most least ingredients to draw up the natural flavour and sweetness of the fish.


(Serves: 4-6 | Preparation: 10 minutes | Cooking: 20 minutes)

Ingredients:
  • 1 Silver Pomfret, about 400g
  • 2 Cup (40ml, using huiji measuring cup) Huiji Waist Tonic
  • 1 Stall Spring Onion, cut into sections
  • 2 – 3 Slices Ginger, Shredded
  • 1 Teaspoon Osmanthus Flower
  • 2 Fresh Shiitake Mushrooms (optional), sliced
  • 1 Teaspoon Shallot Oil, optional

Seasonings:
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil


Method:-
1. Clean pomfret to remove any scales or intestines. Rub pomfret evenly with salt and marinate for 5 minutes.

2. Place pomfret on steaming plate that consists half portion of shredded ginger and spring onion.

3. Arrange remainder ginger, spring onion and mushroom on the fish before scatter the osmanthus flower on it.

4. Steam pomfret over high heat for 10 – 12 minutes. Remove from heat, garnish with shallot oil and drizzle a cup (20ml) of Huiji Waist Tonic on the fish and serve immediately.


With my bottle of Huiji Waist Tonic that acts as a great helper in the kitchen, it definitely helps to boost up our health as well as enhance the flavour of the dish. For your information, Huiji Waist Tonic is now made in "Singapore" with a richer taste that filled with more goodness. And for Lunar New Year, you can pamper your loved one with either their festive gift sets such as Gifts of Thought (S$53.00), Gifts Of Warmth (S$93.00, shown above) or Huiji Waist Tonic and Fruity Lite Bundle Pack (S$42.80) which helps to bring them health and beauty.
