steamed fish, taiwanese style!

one of my favorite chinese dishes is steamed fish. the chinese really know how to prepare a delicious fish. recently i learned from my roommate's sister. since she's from taiwan i will assume it's more taiwanese style, but i can tell you that it's good!

here's the recipe.

1 – striped bass fresh (or any white fish like snapper, flounder)

2 green onions – cut into 1 inch pieces

Ginger – julienne

Cilantro –take off stems, leave whole leaves

Red pepper (spicy one) sliced

Soy sauce

Chinese Rice wine (michui)

1. Pat fish dry with paper towel and salt on both sides. Place fish on plate with steamer tray underneath.

2. Add green onions, ginger, red pepper, soy sauce, rice wine. ( i don't have exact measurements for the soy sauce and rice wine, but basically pour over fish.)

3. Steam for 8 minutes (med size fish, 15 min for large fish).

4. In separate small frying pan, heat oil.

5. Add sizzling oil to fish before serving.
