Steamed fish with spring onions & coriander


  • Place the fish in one layer on a plate that will fit into your steamer. (This can be done in 2 batches, if need be.) Sprinkle with the rice wine vinegar and seasonings, and top with the ginger and shredded spring onion whites. Cook for about 5-6 mins and then carefully pour off any excess liquid and top with the remaining spring onion.
  • Heat the stock and soy in a pan and then pour over the fish and briefly cook. Then transfer the fish to individual plates and top with any cooking juices, the spring onion and chillies.
  • Wipe out the pan and heat the peanut and sesame oils until they begin to crackle. Then carefully spoon over and around the fish.
  • Serve with a bowl of steamed rice on the side.
