Chinese Steamed Sea Bass Recipe

  • 1 pound whole sea bass – cleaned, rinsed, and patted dry
  • salt to taste
  • 5 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup peeled and thinly sliced ginger
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup chile oil
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  1. Season sea bass with salt.
  2. Place 1/3 of the spring onions and ginger onto a glass or ceramic plate; cover with sea bass. Scatter remaining spring onions and ginger over the sea bass.
  3. Bring a wide pot of water to a boil. Set a rack inside the boiling water; place the plate of sea bass on top. Cover pot and steam until sea bass flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour out any water that may have collected on the plate.
  4. Mix soy sauce, chile oil, and sugar together in a small bowl; pour over the sea bass before serving.
