Steamed Lapu-Lapu with Mayonnaise

One of the healthiest recipes is steamed fish because fish is rich is omega 3 fatty acids that is beneficial to your health. Frying the fish will add cholesterol to it so steaming is the best cooking method if you are health conscious. On this recipe, it is recommended to use lapu-lapu or grouper which is a little expensive compared to other fishes commonly sold in wet markets or supermarkets. But you can always substitute it with other white flesh fish if lapu-lapu is not available. Other good alternatives are tilapia, talakitok (pompano) or maya-maya (red snapper).

To cook steamed lapu- lapu with mayonnaise; Clean the fish and rub with salt. Stuff the mouth and abdomen with ginger. Steam lapu-lapu until cooked, about 30 minutes. Set aside at room temperature. Keep in a chiller for an hour. Remove skin. Spread mayonnaise on both sides of the fish. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Garnish with eggs, parsley and red bell pepper.
