Thai steamed sea bass (sour and spicy style)

     I met a lot of foreigner in Thailand who have stayed here for long time, so I ask them "What is your favorite Thai food?" everyone answer me that they love Steamed sea bass! the best of the best, healthy delicious and good combination between fish and sauce :)
     If you think that Pad Thai is very popular in Thailand. Yes, it is! but is doesn't the best dish. If you came here and find out more about Thai food. You will found something more interesting than Pad Thai! Like steamed sea bass :)

     Sea bass, Umm..actually we serve this dish with the head on but merchant took it out :'( anyway if you buy whole fish from market you should prepare it, take shell and gut off then wash and clean it. The easiest way to do this is buy the fillet one LOL. I like the whole fish because we'll get sweet juice from bones.

     Chopped garlic, if you think it too strong for you, you can thinly slice it instead :)
     Thai red chili, Thai people like spicy thing so I add it around 10-12 chili for this dish. If you don't like spicy you can skip it or replace this with red sweet chili for the color :)

Chinese celery, if you can't fine this in your market, I think you can substitute this with thin slice regular celery. It's not big deal to skip it :)

You will need : ( 1 serving for 1-2 persons)
  • 300 g. sea bass or any fish you like
  • 2+1/2 tbs. lime juice
  • 1+1/2 tbs. fish sauce (or salt if you prefer)
  • 2 ts. sugar
  • 8 cloves chopped garlic
  • 10 Thai red chili ( as much as you like)
  • 3-4 stalk Chinese celery for garnish
