Steamed Cream Dory Fillet in Soy Sauce Recipe

I've been a homemaker ever since Jaear and I got married, but until now, meal planning or thinking about what to prepare every meal is still something I haven't mastered. I tried planning our meal weekly, it was great as it helped me save time and from last minute worries. But, the problem is, I keep on listing the same food over and over again. I only know of a few ulam to cook! Haha.

Good thing talaga, may internet na noh? So ayun nga, thanks to Google search, I've learned a few good recipes and I am just so happy not to share about it. If you follow my Facebook page, you've probably seen me sharing photos and recipes of the food I cook. It's not just simply to show off, but to give other parents out there an ulam idea. 

Early last year, I learned how to cook Steamed Cream Dory fillet. Before that, the only use of fish fillet to us, is fry. Lol! Steamed Cream Dory Fillet is an easy and simple recipe and most of the ingredients are readily available at home. The original recipe needs light soy sauce but since we don't have it, I used the regular soy sauce instead. I cook this early last year for the first time, and just this April 2020, I cooked the Lapu-lapu fish or grouper the same way.

April 22, 2020 was my in-laws 31st Wedding Anniversary. I cooked all the ulam/viands 
including the pancit bihon, feeling ko ang galing ko na talaga magluto! Haha. 

I was going through my phone's gallery and saw photos, and videos I took when I cooked it last year, I don't know why I didn't post it before, so I am sharing it with you now.
