Itaki Box Pro: steamed fish

This isn’t a full-on “recipe” – just another idea on what to cook in your Itaki Box 🙂

I love Chinese style steamed fish .. so I did a lazy version of it:


  • 1 or 2 filets of frozen tilapia
  • Pre-washed and cut cabbage and bokchoy
  • Cilantro
  • Green onions
  • Garlic powder (optional)
  • Sukiyaki sauce (I used Kikkoman’s premade sauce in bottle)


  • Place frozen fish fillets in itaki box with cabbage and bokchoy.
  • Season to taste with garlic powder (optional)
  • In separate ziplock bag, store cilantro and green onions.
  • Measure the amount of rice you want in the upper compartment of the itaki box.
  • In a little container, pack some sukiyaki sauce (up to you how much sauce you want)

I used this brand of sukiyaki sauce, but of course you can make your own sauce (I just enjoy the sweetness of this sauce with the fish)

  • Store everything in fridge until you are ready to cook.


  • Pour sukiyaki sauce onto fish and veggies
  • Put appropriate amount of water in the rice compartment.
  • Put both cooking compartments together, and pour water into the itaki box (not into the cooking compartments itself).
  • Cover and cook until “ready” light is on. (NOTE: before eating, check to make sure fish and rice is cooked… if not, simply add more water into the itaki box and cook longer).
  • Once everything is cooked, garnish the fish with the cilantro and green onions, some added sukiyaki sauce if you like, and enjoy with the hot rice 🙂
