Steamed Fish with Scallion

I'm not sure if this is lapu-lapu  but the fish monger 
(he's Egyptian I think) at the carrefour supermarket called out to us saying "lapu-lapu kabayan".  So we bought 2 whole lapu lapu

Currently, we are trying to diversify in terms of the kind of fish we eat since we decided to go with white meat lately. Not that I have been eating fish and chicken since 2012, but the husband decided to follow suit :D

We use to only cook tilapia, bangus (milkfish), salmon, tuna,  shark, and mackerel.  But now we started having kingfish, seabass, grouper, trout, hamour, and anything that looks good in our fish plate.  No problem with that.  My problem really is, how to cook them. We need variety of fish recipes otherwise dinner will get boring.  You see, I get tired of eating the same thing easily.  I need to think think think.

Anyway, here's a variation of our steamed fish.  We have other recipes of steamed fish you might be interested in, click steamed fish recipes to see them.  Click this for our collection of other steamed dishes recipes.
