This is one of those dishes that's really exciting to eat – the flavours are really fragrant and light. Steamed fish and rice is always a winner, especially with Thai flavours. If you've got a good fishmonger, using other fish like red mullet, prawns or squid to mix things up a bit is a great idea. It's easy to put together and loads of fun to serve the tray at the table.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
