Note(s):

The Spicy Steamed Whole Maya-Maya (Red Snapper) recipe very simple to cook and very tasty too!

Any firm and fleshy fish will be good for this recipe. I used maya-maya. Lapu-lapu, labahita, apahap or dalagang-bukid will also be good.

Bottled chili garlic sauce is commercially available in most groceries and supermarkets. If unavailable, substitute the following: 1 teaspon of finely minced garlic mixed with 1 finely chopped chili pepper, a few drops of soy sauce, a pinch of sugar and a pinch of salt.
