Steamed Fish

I have featured steamed fish  before, the recipe we got from a magazine.
This time I go this recipe from the internet (Rhonda Parkinson, guide)
while searching about Chinese New Year. Steamed fish if often served during
New Year celebration to symbolize  abundance for the coming year.


2 tablespoons salted black beans
1 1/2 pounds whole walleye or red snapper, well cleaned (I used Tilapia)
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
green onions, for garnish

Place the black beans in a bowl and cover with warm water for about 2 minutes.
Stir and rinse. Drain well. Add the ginger, oil, garlic, salt, sugar, soy sauce and
sesame oil. Mix and set aside. Cleaned the fish well and pat dry. Rub the cavity
and outside of the fish with the black beans mixture. Place in foil, cover and
refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Steamed the fish over boiling water for about 15 minutes until cooked
(check if the fish flakes easily).

You can also microwave it for 3 minutes on high. Rotate the dish and cook
for another 2 minutes on high.

I wanted to try out our new Imarflex turbo broiler, so I cooked it at 450F
for 20 minutes.

Garnish with green onions before serving.
