Fill a large pot 1/2 full with water and add the coriander root. Place a bamboo steamer with lid on top of the pot. Bring to the boil. Place the fish onto a heatproof plate.
Cover the fish with all of the remaining ingredients, except for the garnishes.
Place into the steamer and cover. Cook until the fish is no longer opaque and flakes easily, 15 to 20 minutes. Try not to take the lid off until it is done steaming; this will ensure a fully-cooked and tender fish.
Remove the fish from steamer and garnish with slices of lime, spring onion and fresh coriander leaves.
Serve with Jasmine rice – this is a strong flavoured recipe that needs the rice to enjoy all the flavours.
