Rice Cooker Fish
For here in Thailand, think Pangasius, which is already boneless and skinless, or go with Barramundi but you will have to fillet those yourself. This is a quick meal to put together. This uses the common Cook/Warm rice cooker with a steamer basket. If you don’t have a steamer basket, just continue reading to see how to do that. This is perfect for a small rice cooker.

Instructions
  1. For the fish, Pangasius would be perfect but you can use any boneless and skinless fillets you prefer. Cut each fillet in half. For this recipe, 3-4 fillet pieces would fit in an even layer in the steamer basket.
  2. Rinse and add rice to your rice cooker pot, add water (chicken broth would be ideal here but not required) per your cooker’s manufacturer suggestion (normally first knuckle up from your index finger tip). If you wish to steam a vegetable, like broccoli with the rice, add a pinch more liquid. Set the rice cooker to Cook.
  3. While the rice (and maybe vegetable) is cooking, place a sheet of foil in the steamer basket and push down to form an edge so no oil leaks out. Rub the olive oil on both sides of the fish, season with salt and pepper as desired, place fish on the foil, fold the foil over the steamer basket. IF YOU DO NOT have a steamer basket that came with rice cooker, prepare the foil the same way, making sure there is raised sides all the way around to prevent the oil from going into the rice. At about 15 minutes into cooking the rice, add the steamer basket to the cooker or add the foil pouch directly on top of the rice, and let the cooker switch to Warm setting, a lot of this depends on your rice cooker and how long it takes to cook 1 cup of rice. If the fillets are think, put this in a few minutes earlier.
  4. When the cooker switches to Warm, remove the fish and check that, it should easily flake with fork indicating it is done.
  5. Scoop out some rice into a small bowl, place a plate over the bowl, invert the plate while hold the bowl as well, place a fillet on top, place vegetables on the side, serve.
