SO delicious and simple. You were right that this type of fish doesn't need any fancy or fussy sauce. I wanted to make something quick but delicious and when I saw your posting, tried it out. I made this with a large pan of roasted Asian beech mushrooms and bok choy mui (smaller than baby bok choy). Yum, so good!! Definitely a keeper, thank you!
Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I was looking for a way to cook fresh Opah that was simple and delicious and since I'd never cooked it before I was hoping to find some help (hand holding). Your simple method was exactly what I was after. I agree with you; this fish is very tasty on its own and doesn't need a fussy sauce or topping.
