I have seen steamed fish dishes where the fish is cooked on top of the rice in a rice cooker. I'd like to try this, but I don't have a rice cooker and always cook my rice in a pot. Does anyone know how to adapt this style of cooking to work in a pot?
My usual method of cooking rice is as follows:
- 2 c basmati rice
- 2.5 c water
Bring to boil, then turn down to minimum and cover. Cook for 15 minutes, then remove from heat and let stand (leaving lid on) for 10 minutes.
So would this method be similar to how a rice cooker works? When would I add the fish?
To clarify: I'm looking to cook the fish directly on top of the rice while it's steaming, like you could do in a rice cooker. If possible I'd like to do this without any additional cooking equipment.
