This steamed fish in chadon beni garlic butter is “de bomb”. Ah mean it was just nuclear on my senses. You know the feeling you get when something is so irresistible that you just get that all so happy feeling inside? You just have to put down your fork, shake your head in wonder and say “hmm!!”  Well, that’s how I felt when I tasted this steamed fish. Hmmm….Yes, to me, it was that good.

How else did I know it was that good? The aroma of garlic and trini herbs was the first sign I got that wafted from the oven and filled the whole kitchen. Then, behind my back,  as soon as it was cool enough to eat , my son ate one of the fillets and was still coming back for more. And, honestly, when he doesn’t like a particular dish, he just won’t eat it. So, that was a good sign…..

Now a simple word of care and caution before you embark on this journey….Since we are steaming in foil don’t forget to poke a few holes to allow some of the steam to escape while the fish is cooking. Getting burned from steam is much worse than boiling water. So please follow my instructions to the letter and soon you have your very own morsels of trini flavoured steamed fish to partake of and maybe share……if any remains lol!!

Ok , why fish? …Well it’s Lent and it’s fishville these days at my home, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do the same treatment for chicken or even shrimp….Look look yuh see? Ah givin allyuh even more ideas to try with my chadon beni garlic butter…..Here’s steamed fish in chadon beni garlic butter. Enjoy.

    Greetings Felix! dc again, I finally had some time to come onto the website and enjoy your postings! Two questions please: 1. What side dishes do you recommend with this (eg, coo-coo etc) and 2. You said that you could try this with shrimp? Would you say a pound, pound and half or two pounds of shrimp with the same measurements of the other ingredients would suffice?

      Hi DC, Nice of you to drop by. For the sides I would recommend baked potato, risi bisi, a simple salad, or even just some plain rice with lentil peas. What I’m trying to get at here is simplicity and not wanting all the flavours just mushed altogether until you can’t really taste any one dish on your plate. For the coo coo you would have to use a sauce of your choice. For the shrimp a pound will do just fine with this recipe.
