1) Clean and wash the fish. Score fish on both sides from head to tail as if to fillet and de-bone it but do not cut through. Set aside for steaming.

2) Place the fish on a steaming plate. Stick porcelain soup spoon on the lower part of the fish to expose fish and lift it a bit so as to allow for even steaming.

3) Arrange tomato slices, pickled plums, mushrooms and pork fat slices over the fish. Pour a teaspoon of pickled plum vinegar over the fish.

4) Steam fish for 7 minutes (440g fish) or 5 minutes (250g fish).

Garnish fish with red chilli, spring onions and coriander and serve.

6. Serve with steamed rice.
