This is off season and I bought a kg of the rabbitfish for $5, for 10 fish.
For this rabbitfish, it seems to be a practice among the fishmongers that they will not gut the fish for customers. So the first thing to do is gut the fish and clean them.
For steaming, lay the fish on a serving tray, lightly rub a dash of salt on each fish and put a few slices of ginger over the fish. Steam on medium heat for about 8 minutes.
I top the steam fish with fried ginger and oil for fragrance. Julienne an inch of ginger into thin slices and fry in medium heat with 2 tablespoons of oil. Stir fry till the ginger is golden brown and crispy. Spoon over the steamed fish and serve.
I use light soy with cut chilli padi (small red chillies) and drizzle with lime juice as a dipping sauce.
A very nice 4 minute video on how to steam fish with ginger oil.
