Steamed Basa Recipe with Celery, Scallions & Tomato Sauce

Steamed Basa Recipe – Steamed Basa with Celery, Scallions & Tomato Sauce Recipe

This steamed basa recipe with celery, scallions & tomato sauce was a recent & deliciously turned out experiment. I had some tomato juice (Real Tomato Juice that comes in tetra packs) lying in the fridge and it was nearing expiry. With no intention to and not wanting to throw it away, I started cooking with it.

This steamed basa recipe is one of the two recipes that I have already done. I will share my tomato rice recipe made with the same tomato juice also very soon.

This particular steamed base recipe is for a super simple, flavour-filled, steamed fish that can be enjoyed as an appetizer or entree. Opting to use frozen fish fillets as against fresh fish, I found that it is convenient, just as delicious, and a cinch to prepare with no fish skin and bones to contend with at the table!

So, here is my simple and easy recipe for making sumptuous steamed basa at home with refreshing celery, scallions and tomato-based sauce. Enjoy when you eat this simple fish recipe. Do comment if you like what you ate. 🙂

Tip: I have used a bamboo steamer for steaming the fish. If you don’t have one handy, simply steam the fish in a wide pressure cooker on a high rack used in microwaves. Ensure you keep the salt low since butter and tomato juice will also contribute their own. Also, to save time, you may want to put the fish for steaming and then work with your sauce.
