This steamed dorada cooked in a pepper and ginger sauce is a great meal for any campervan. The dorada fish is part of the bream family and any white fish can be used. A great simple dish full of flavour!

Make sure to read our article on ventilating your campervan if you want to ensure there are no fishy smells left after cooking!

Steamed Dorada with pepper and ginger sauce

Easy, pretty and tasty fish dish. Steamed whole fish is very popular in Asia, almost as popular as deep fried version of it. It can be Pomfret, Tilapia, Dorada or any other small to medium size fish. Dorada is my favourite because of its nice firm flesh and absence of small bones.
