Asian Ginger Sauce for Fish

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by CulinaryQueen

Came up with this after searching for a similar sauce. Can be used on just about any white fish (cod, sole, orange roughy, flounder) or even salmon. Try to use fresh ginger as it will really make a difference. If you don't have fresh then ground ginger will suffice.

A great steamed fish dish! I used tilapia. The only thing I changed was halving the sesame oil. I found that the following amounts made the proper measurements: 1 green onion, 1/2 inch of ginger, and a 1/4 of a chili pepper. I like the moistness and combo of flavors here.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the first seven ingredients (sherry through garlic).
  2. Add the chillies, if using.
  3. NOTE: I made the sauce early in the day to allow the flavors to mix, but it is not necessary to do so.
  4. Preheat the oven to 205C/400°F.
  5. Place the fish fillets in a baking dish.
  6. Drizzle the marinade over the fish.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  8. Plate the fish and spoon the sauce over it.
  9. Serve with rice.
