I could definitely see where this would have been totally awesome had I not overcooked the fish. They were dry but not rubbery. It would be great to add a tip on how to make sure not to overcook with this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut fillets into 2 inch chunks and drizzle with the lemon juice.
  2. Pour the beer into the bottom of a saucepan (if using fresh lemon juice, toss the leftover lemon rind in with beer) and place a collapsible vegetable steamer over the beer.
  3. Bring the beer to a boil, place the fish chunks in the steamer, cover and steam for 5 to 10 minutes, dependent upon the thickness of the fish.
  4. The fish will be rubbery if it is overcooked.
  5. Meanwhile, heat the butter with the garlic and salt (I heat it slowly until the garlic is no longer raw).
  6. Remove the fish from the steamer and discard the beer/liquid/rind.
  7. Serve the fish chunks with the garlic butter dipping sauce.
