“Steamed Cantonese-style Fish”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 fish fillets
  • 1 12 tablespoons ginger
  • 2 12 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons spring onions
  • 1 12 tablespoons oil
  • handful coriander


  1. Pat the fish fillets dry with kitchen paper if needed, and season. Put on a heatproof plate and scatter over the shredded ginger.
  2. Pour water into a wok or deep pan to a depth of 2.5-5cm (1-2in) and insert a steaming rack. If you don't have a steaming rack, use an upturned heatproof dish to make a trivet. Put the pan on a high heat and bring the water to the boil.
  3. Put the plate of fish on the steaming rack or heatproof dish. Cover with a lid and gently steam for 10-12 minutes, until the fish is opaque and flaky.
  4. Remove the fish from the wok and divide between 4 plates. Drizzle over the light and dark soy sauces and scatter over the spring onions.
  5. Heat the oil in a small pan until smoking hot and carefully pour over each piece of fish. It will sizzle a little. Scatter over the coriander and serve immediately.
