Day 85: Jamaica and steamed fish

Good evening, Raffies!

Finally, it is time for some fish!
We are going to Jamaica and making steamed fish!
This is a dish, where you can put in whatever vegetables you have at home.
As for the fish, most of the time you use red snapper, or at least most recipes I checked used it.

For my dish, I have followed this simple recipe:


4 snappers, whole fish, cleaned

1/2 c butter

1/2 c red bell pepper, sliced

1/2 c green bell pepper, sliced

1 onion, sliced

1 tomato, sliced

1 tsp chili

1/2 lime, juice

1 c hot water


black pepper

Rub the fish in salt and pepper.

In a large skillet, heat the butter and sauté the bell peppers, onion and tomatoes.

Add the chili, lime juice and hot water. Add the fish.

Cook for 10 minutes, while pouring the sauce over the fish. Cover with a lid and cook for 5 more minutes.

Flip the fish over and cook another 5 minutes on the other side.

Serve with rice and salad.

The recipe is easy and quick to prepare and the result is lovely! The flavour of the fish is really intense and it combines perfectly with the veggies.

I’d love to enjoy it on a sunny beach in Jamaica 🙂
