Steaming is the best way to cook this. Cover with foil. When the water is boiling, place the plate on top of the pan. Continue to cook on a medium heat for 20-24 minutes.
The best way to tell if your fish is done is by testing it with a fork at an angle, at the thickest point, and twist gently. The fish will flake easily when it’s done and it will lose its translucent or raw appearance. A good rule of thumb is to cook the fish to an internal temperature of 140-145 degrees.
