This “Steamed Sea Bass with Lime” recipe was tasty and extremely simple. The steaming methodology worked nice with a pair of filets employing a customary vegetable steamer in a very tall pot. The fish turned out moist and therefore the sauce was flavorful. My solely criticism was that the soy sauce ran everywhere the plate- perhaps if cooked with the remainder of the sauce, it might be thicker. Even my son (30 months) and my husband, who isn’t a fish fan, liked it so much !
