    WI Cheesehead's Note:

    I got this from About.com. I am looking for more recipes to use with my new bamboo steamer. I have a 2 layer steamer, so I was able to put the fish on the bottom rack and vegetables on the top and dinner was done in 10 minutes! I used tilapia fillets.

      Nice recipe to break in my new bamboo steamer. I didn't use the sugar at all (trying to cut back). I kinda expected to have soy sauce, but I just added it later as a condiment. I also steamed some broccoli in the second level, it was very mushy. Don't leave your veggies in for the whole 15-20 mintues, unless you like 'em squishy. (yuck) I just used a old small plate to hold the fish & parchment for the broccoli. This was exactly what I hoped it would be, basic and simple.
