Steamed Red Snapper, Chinese Style


1-6 ounce fillet of Red snapper
1/8 teaspoon ginger, grated
1/4 teaspoon cilantro leaves
2 Shiitake mushroom caps, julienne
1/2 green onion (top only), julienne
1 Tablespoon peanut oil, hot
1 Tablespoon shoyu (soy sauce)
salt & pepper to taste


Bring a large pot of water to a boil and top with a bamboo or stainless steel steamer. Make sure you have a top that fits the bamboo or stainless steel steamer.

Season the fish with salt and pepper. Place the red snapper in a steamer and steam for approximately 6-8 minutes (depending on thickness of fish or until it flakes).

Place cooked fish on plate. Top with ginger, cilantro leaves, shiitake mushrooms and green onions. Using a ladle, pour hot peanut oil over fish and follow up with drizzle of soy sauce. Serve with steamed sweet potato and Chinese cabbage.
