Cantonese Steamed Whole Sea Bass instructions

  1. Cut the ginger into match sticks and cut the green onions into strips. Split the ginger into 3 piles and the green onions into 2 piles..
  2. Clean the fish and pat dry. Sprinkle some salt and pepper over both sides of the fish..
  3. Put some ginger in the cavity of the fish.
  4. Using a steam proof plate – place some ginger on it, place the fish on the top, then top it off with the rest of the ginger and one pile of green onions.
  5. Put some water into your steamer. Turn it on to high heat and wait for the water to boil. After the water has a running boil, reduce the heat to medium. Put the dish into the steamer and cover it. Let it steam for about 8-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish..
  6. While the fish is steaming, start to heat up the soy sauce, wine and oil in a pot. You may want to time this so that the oil is barely smoking to when the fish is done steaming..
  7. Once the fish is done steaming, take it out. Place the cilantro and the rest of the green onions on top..
  8. Please be careful with this step – put the hot oil on to the fish and you should hear the green onions sizzle..
  9. Serve immediately.
