Steamed Fish (Chinese style)

I have never steamed fish fearing that it might smell or worst still that I might overcook the fish but today I tried steaming and it's so perfect and yummy...


2 pcs of cod fish (I bought the cod steaks without skin)
You can use any type of white fish.
white pepper


1 Tb Light Soy Sauce
1Tsp Sugar
1 Tb water
1 Tb Hsao Xing Wine (Chinese cooking rice wine)


3 clove garlic ( chopped finely)
1 Tb cooking oil
Spring onions
Sesame oil


Clean fish and pat dry.  Place fish in the middle of steaming place and place ginger on top.

Bring water in steamer to boil and place the plate on top and steam for 7 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring the sauce to a simmer. Take it off the heat.

In another pan, fry the garlic in the oil.  Dont let it burn or else it will taste bitter.

Check for fish doneness. When done, take the fish off the steamer and pour away the liquid in the steaming plate.

Add a dash of pepper and pour the soy sauce mixture on the fish and garnish with the golden brown garlic and spring onions.  Serve immediately.
