Jamaican Steamed Fish

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.

Below is a very simple recipe that will have you enjoying steamed fish in  just over 30 minutes.
