This dish adopted from Teo Chew Steam Fish style. I’m using Oyster Mushroom to replace the fish.

In this recipe I’m using steel plate, porcelain plate work well too. You may add some chili padi or spring onion as garnishing up to individual’s preference diet.

Alternatively, you may add soft tofu side by side with the oyster mushroom and continue with the next layer as above.

    May I know how you wash the oyster mushroom? With tap water or hot water?

      Hi Pris,

      Usually I will use paper towel and small knife to clean each mushroom, one at a time, to remove any dirt sticking on it. Rinse it under running tap water; lightly squeeze it to remove the excess water. Then pat dry with paper towels. Hope this help. Thank you for visiting my site.
