  • 2 Tablespoons finely sliced ginger, sliced into slivers
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 Tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon oyster sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon sugar (optinal)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground white pepper

Step 1

For the sauce
Combine the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.
For the fish

Place a steaming rack in a wok or a deep pan and fill the pan with 2 inches of water. The water should be below the steaming rack. Bring the water to a boil over high heat.

Place the fish fillets on a plate suitable for steaming and large enough to hold the fillets in a single layer. Spoon the sauce evenly over the fish fillets.
Place the plate of fish on the steaming rack, cover tightly, and steam the fish over high heat for 7-10 minutes per inch thickness of fish.

Carefully remove the plate from the steamer, transfer the fillets to a warmed platter, and spoon the sauce over the fish.

To serve, heat the oil in a small pan until near smoking. Place the scallions and cilantro on top of the fish fillets and carefully drizzle the hot oil over the fish. Serve immediately.
