Ready In:




  • Bring 2 cups cold water to a simmer in a large wok over medium heat.
  • Line a 30cm bamboo steamer with baking paper and place steamer over water.
  • 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).
  • Personally I would use my electric 3 tiered steamer to steam the fish.
  • Carefully transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  • Meanwhile combine coriander, onion and chilli in a bowl.
  • Combine ginger, garlic, sugar and soy sauce in a heatproof bowl.
  • 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).
  • Drizzle ginger mix over fish and top with coriander mix and serve with rice and greens.

  1. 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!!!
  2. What great flavor this dish has! We barbecued the fish. I halved the recipe, and ended up doubling the green onion, chili and garlic out of convenience. Tasty and satisfying dish.


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
