Steamed Whole Snapper with Ginger & Spring Onion



0 portion(s)

  • 400-600 grams Whole Snapper, (I used panfry snapper)
  • Chinese cabbage leaves, (I used baby Wombok)
  • 3 spring onions, white and green parts, split into two
  • 2-3 spring onions, white and green parts, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 30 grams ginger, sliced julienne
  • 800 grams Boiling water
  • 50 grams peanut oil
  • 1 handful of coriander leaves, for garnishing

For the sauce...

  • 125 grams Liquid Chicken Stock
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon shaoxing wine, (Chinese rice wine)
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

Recipe's preparation

  1. Put all the sauce ingredients into a small bowl and set aside.

  2. Line Varoma bowl with the cabbage leaves and split spring onions in the Varoma bowl, ensuring that a small opening is in the middle to allow steam to come through. Set aside.

  3. Pat the fish dry with a paper towel. With a sharp knife, make 3 diagonal cuts in the thickest park of the fish, then in the other direction to make a diamond pattern. Do the same on the other side of the fish.

  4. Rub the fish with salt and lay it on top of the split spring onions and cabbage leaves. Set aside.

  5. Fill TM bowl with boiling water and place Varoma bowl with fish on top. Pour the reserved sauce over the fish and top with ginger. Cook 10-15 minutes / Varoma / speed 2.

  6. Once cooked, transfer the fish and ginger onto a platter and scatter the fish with the julienned spring onions. Reserve 150g of the steamed fish juice from the TM bowl and pour on top of the fish. Disregard the remaining juice.

  7. Place peanut oil into the TM bowl and cook 1 minute / 100oC / speed 1. Once cooked, carefully douse the fish with the hot oil and top with coriander. serve immediately.
