My kids prefer the steamed way of cooking as it is softer and juicier.
But when it comes to this kind of fish – which I think is called red snapper – steaming is a no-no for Eu. The smell and taste is too over-powering that she would not touch it.
A while ago I cooked them this fish deep fried before cooking it with some soy sauce gravy. Adding the small tomatoes was an afterthought but it was a good idea it gave the dish a salty and sourish combination that even I enjoyed it very much.
As for my girls verdict, they insist that I cook more next time!
