7 steps to steam fish with simple ingredients

Here's a simple recipe to steam fish in 7 easy steps using simple ingredients: Ingredients: 1 whole fish (such as sea bass or tilapia), cleaned and scaled 2-3 slices of ginger 2-3 green onions, cut into 2-inch pieces Soy sauce Sesame oil Salt Optional: cilantro leaves for garnish

Prepare the Fish: Rinse the fish under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Make 2-3 diagonal cuts on each side of the fish, about 1 inch apart, to help it cook evenly.

Season the Fish: Rub the fish with salt, both inside and out. Place a few slices of ginger inside the cavity of the fish.

Prepare the Steamer: Fill a large steamer pot or wok with enough water to reach just below the steaming rack. Bring the water to a boil over high heat.

Steam the Fish: Place the fish on a heatproof plate that fits inside your steamer. Place the plate on the steaming rack, cover the steamer with a lid, and steam the fish for about 10-15 minutes, depending on the size of the fish.

Prepare the Sauce: While the fish is steaming, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce and a few drops of sesame oil. You can also add a pinch of sugar if desired.

Serve the Fish: Carefully remove the plate from the steamer and discard the ginger slices. Pour the soy sauce mixture over the fish, and garnish with green onions and cilantro leaves, if using.

Enjoy: Serve the steamed fish hot with steamed rice and vegetables on the side.
