Steamed Fish Slices with Mushrooms and Spicy Turnips

An easy and excellent one plate dish which you can enjoyed with some plain rice or porridge. Whilst I used barramundi fish slices for this recipe, you can enjoy it with most kinds of fish slices with that said.

It also contains mushrooms, carrots and spicy and savory turnips. And alternating the fish slices between the mushrooms and carrots helps to enhance the presentation of the dish which make it more appetizing !

This is a very homely Chinese dish which I had thoroughly enjoyed with some brown rice and which hope you will like it too.
