Jamaican Steamed Fish Recipe
A Simple Jamaican Steamed Fish Recipe by Kemoy McCurbyn
Steamed fish is very popular here in Jamaica. We looove it! And we female tend to serve this
dish to our male partners to “strong up dem back”.
Apart from that though, this dish is a very healthy one as the okras (one of the ingredients) are a good source of
vitamins, whilst the fish is a good source of protein and Omega -3 just to
name a few.
