4 cloves minced garlic
4 green jalapeño peppers
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon white pepper
3 tablespoons nam pla
3 tablespoons tamarind juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
4 thin slices galangal
2 thinly sliced kaffir lime leaves
1 tablespoon oil

Clean the fish and then make three slashes on each side with a sharp knife. Place on a steaming plate. Sprinkle the remaining ingredients over the fish. Place in a steamer and steam on high heat for 20 minutes. Present on a serving dish or a banana leaf.
