Diabetes: Thai steamed fish with crunchy vegetables and ginger recipe

Super easy and healthy steamed cod dish, full of Thai flavours that will be ready in 10 minutes.

Diabetes diet: This is a wonderfully easy and delicious dish that can be done with any steamed white fish. I am using cod for that recipe that I had in the freezer. I let it defrost before cooking. This dish on its own contains no carbs but you could pair it with quinoa or vegetables. Enjoy!


  • Cod or any white fish
  • Ginger
  • Carrots
  • Spring onions
  • Sesame seeds
  • As a side dish, green beans
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Chilli flakes or chilli oil optional


  • Bring some water to the boil at the bottom of the steamer
  • Put some extra virgin olive oil on the grill of the steamer
  • Place the fish, let it cook for roughly 10 minutes or more, depending on how thick the fish is.
  • In the meantime, slice very thinly some ginger
  • Some carrots
  • And some spring onions
  • You can either cook the ginger and carrots in a frying pan with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil and soya sauce or you could add them as they are to your fish later on.
  • In a dish, add the soya sauce and water
  • (You can also add some chilli oil or chilli flakes if you like it spicy)
  • When the fish is cooked, set it up in a dish and add the vegetables on top with the soya sauce dressing.
  • Bon appétit!
