  • Step 1

    Wash the raw fish with fresh water. Place this fish on a large plate and drizzle lemon drops over it along with salt. Keep it aside for marination.

  • Step 2

    Chop the green onions, bell peppers, ginger, garlic and green chilies in a bowl. Meanwhile, place a non-stick pan over medium flame. Pour oil in it and once the oil is hot enough, add green onions and green chilies and saute for a while. After a minute or two, add chopped ginger and garlic pieces and fry them. Put the marinated fish on this pan and cover it with a lid. Let it simmer for 10 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Remove the lid after 10 minutes and pour cumin powder over the fish. Cover the pan with a lid and cook over low flame. Remove the lid after sometime and see if the fish has released some water. Now, add water to the pan along with some salt. Let the fish cook for a while.

  • Step 4

    Cover the pan again with a lid and let the gravy boil for some more time over low flame. After 10-15 minutes turn off the gas and your steamed lemon fish is now ready to be served. Garnish it with coriander leaves, lemon slices and chopped bell peppers and serve hot.
