Coconut Curry Steamed Mediterranean Sea Bass

Last time I made a Wine-Steamed Mediterranean Sea Bass with Curry and Red Pepper, and this time I added coconut milk. The basic recipe is the same, but add coconut milk at the end. If you add coconut milk from the beginning, it will only evaporate, so steam with water plus wine first, and add coconut milk at the end. This recipe only needs 100ml of coconut milk. I made a Japanese dessert with the rest of the coconut milk, but this is another post.
