Asian Steamed Fish Recipe

This is fish you steam together with soy sauce, sesame oil, green onions, garlic, and ginger.

What you need:

  • Fish (salmon, tilapia, mahi mahi, etc.)
  • Four cloves of garlic
  • 2 TBSP soy sauce
  • 1 TBSP sesame oil
  • 1-2 carrots
  • Fresh ginger
  • Quarter cup of water
  • 1 bunch of green onions

Get a deep pan or pot with lid. Cut carrot into 1 inch long cylinders and arrange them on the bottom as support columns. Lay the fish on top. Slice ginger and lay that on the fish. Crush or slice garlic and lay that on the ginger. Put soy sauce over that. Put sesame oil over that. Then lay green onions over that. Pour water into pan/pot from the sides (rather than over the food). Then cover with lid and steam at medium-high heat for 10 minutes. Check water levels and poke fish to check it’s done; if not done, steam more…if water level drying up, add a little more water and continue steaming. Add more soy sauce if desired at the end. Eat with rice.
