Try this Thai Steamed Fish and Steamed Veg recipe perfect for a healthy weeknight dinner. Steaming is a healthy way to cook fish and vegetables because it helps to preserve their nutrients and flavour. The steam creates a moist condition that is perfect for cooking the whole fish. Also, Thai Steamed Fish is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for healthy brain function along with lowering blood pressure and reducing the risk of heart disease. You can also steam a mixture of vegetables for extra flavour and nutrition.
