Steamed Fish With Ginger and Scallions

Steamed Fish With Ginger and Scallions created by morgainegeiser

You can certainly make this fish in a bamboo steamer, but I have found it works well done in foil packets in the oven--and there's a bonus--nothing to wash.

Ready In:
25mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 4 fish fillets (halibut or a white fleshed fish of your choice)
  • salt and pepper
  • 12 inch fresh ginger, peeled and smashed
  • 3 scallions, sliced and smashed
  • For the Sauce

  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 14 cups chicken stock, hot, preferably homemade and unsalted
  • 14 cup sugar
  • fresh cilantro
  • For the Garnish

  • 2 tablespoons scallions, julienned
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled, julienned
  • 1 ounce sesame oil, heated

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Place each fish fillet on a large piece of aluminum foil.
  • Combine the smashed ginger, scallions, oil and salt and pepper and distribute the mixture among the four pieces of fish.
  • Bring up the ends of each piece of foil and close up to form four loose pouches.
  • Place the four pouches on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for about ten minutes.
  • While the fish is cooking, make the sauce by combing the ingredients and stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Open one foil packet and make sure fish is coked through.
  • If so, place each piece of fish on an individual serving plate on which you have pooled a tablespoon or two of the warm sauce and garnish with the julienned scallions and ginger.
  • Drizzle the hot oil over the fish and serve, with extra sauce on the side.

    I used the traditional bamboo steamer to make this recipe. It came out quite tender and flavorful. My husband was not overly fond of the garnishes, and I personally could have got by with just the regular sauce myself. There was a lot of leftover sauce, saved it for later. Would definitely make again. Reviewed for ZWT 2008

    As Susie, I used a bamboo steamer to steam the fish. I also agree with Susie that this is a very easy and fast recipe. And again I have to agree with Susie that there was a lot of leftover sauce, so you may either want to make less of it or do with the leftover sauce what I did: put it into your fridge and use it for a stir-fry. Having read Hey Jude's review before making it, I also used less soy sauce and I'm glad I did, as it still was quite salty with less sauce. Another possibility would have been to use salt-reduced soy sauce. Thanks for posting this quick dish, Kate.

    I cooked the fish in a bamboo steamer. I liked how easy to prepare this recipe was. I did find that I had lots of leftover sauce and will reduce the amounts there next time. The garnish suggestions are perfect. Thank you Kate for sharing your recipe!
