5 Stars! Such a quick and easy recipe to make, but absolutely phenomenal! I was amazed at the taste. I had to substitute a jalapeno for the red chile, but otherwise made as posted. Can't wait to make this one again!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring 2 cups cold water to a simmer in a large wok over medium heat.
  2. Line a 30cm bamboo steamer with baking paper and place steamer over water.
  3. Place fish in steamer and cover and steam for 5 to 10 minutes or until just cooked through (timing will depend on thickness of fish and you could use blue eye, snapper or ling fish are suggested).
  4. Personally I would use my electric 3 tiered steamer to steam the fish.
  5. Carefully transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  6. Meanwhile combine coriander, onion and chilli in a bowl.
  7. Combine ginger, garlic, sugar and soy sauce in a heatproof bowl.
  8. Place peanut oil and sesame oil in a saucepan over high heat and cook for 2 minutes until starting to smoke and then carefully pour over ginger mixture (CAREFUL it will spit).
  9. Drizzle ginger mix over fish and top with coriander mix and serve with rice and greens.
