Place the fish on the grill of a fish steamer with boiling water already inside. (You can add herbs to the water if you wish.) Cover and cook. The water should not touch the fish.
If you have a steam oven, place the fish in a perforated pan or and cook in a preheated oven (185-200F). Cooking times vary according to the type of oven, the temperature and the size of the fish.

It is recommended to check the internal temperature of the fish. (It should be 150F.)

The empirical way to check if the fish is cooked requires a bit of experience judging the consistency fish with your fingertip. You can also poke the fish with a toothpick. If the toothpick is warm, the fish should be done.

As an alternative

Steaming can be done with a pressure cooker or steamer. In that case, place the fish on a rack (or a small basket) inside the pot. Previously filled with water. Normally. The level of the water should not reach the rack with the food on it. Cooking times are significantly reduced when steaming under pressure because the temperature of the vapor is much higher. In addition, less soluble substances and primary nutrients in the food are lost when cooking with steam rather than boiling.
