Notes
Adjust steaming time baed on the thickness of your fillet, if 1-inch or thicker, steam for 10 minutes or so, if less than 1-inch, reduce the time by 2-3 minutes.
To check if the fish has been cooked, gently poke the fillet in the middle with a fork, if flakes easily, it is done. Otherwise, add 1-2 more minutes to cooking time.
