Awesome awesome recipe! Simple and definitely delicious! My husband who hates green onion and picks every single one of them out of his dish even ate all the green onion in this dish!!! It took me a long time to find fermented black bean in the store but turns out they call it "Salted Black Beans". Even my toddler loved it too! Keeping this one in my recipe book.

i ended up baking this since i had no steamer or chopsticks. had to use regular soy sauce and mirin in place of the lite soy and rice wine since those were all i had in hand. i even doubled and i think maybe even trippled the sauce. delicious! was a hit w/ the kids. will go into my favorites!

This dish is as delicious as it is easy to prepare; low-cal and healthy too! I used Basa fillets (a Vietnamese catfish) and followed recipe exactly (used rice wine) except for cilantro garnish. I recommend using the electric wok as well-- maintains a constant boil. Don't hesitate to eat the ginger shreds because they are lovely and leave a wonderful taste in the mouth. This is a real winner; thanks for posting !

I used cod and followed the recipe. I used the rice cooker to steam it. Delicous, easy and healthy. Thank you.

Pretty good recipe. My boyfriend did not really like it that much, but I thought it was good. We served it with a simple green salad and rice.

This is a solid recipe. I put everything together in the morning before work so all I would have to do is steam the fish and bok choy when I got home. The flavor was good and the fish was so tender. I used a whole tilapia and the 20 minute steam time was perfect. To reduce dishes/cookware, I just added the bok choy to the steamer after 10-12 minutes. Quick and easy. Thank you.

my husband and i love this dish. we like things a little spicy, so we added a little chili black bean sauce to it and it was great.

This is great. I used Grouper (Whole Foods was out of Cod), and I was very pleased with the outcome. Incredibly simple to prepare, great use for fermented black beans which have been sitting in my fridge for months...
