Sea Bass is a common fish that is heavily consumed since the flavour is quite good. Here in this recipe we have steamed the Sea Bass and not fried or cooked it in a pan. Steaming is a very light, healthy cooking technique but it does not mean that the flavours of the dish will be bland.
You can always increase the flavours with the spices and the seasoning used in the dish. Here in this dish we have used ginger, garlic, soy sauce and other seasoning to increase the flavours. This dish is less on calories and high on flavour which is the best combo we can ever get in a recipe.
Recipe By: Pooja Gupta
Recipe Type: Main Course
Sea bass, head on, gutted - 1
Piece ginger, thinly sliced - 2 cm
Shaohsing rice wine - 2 tbsp
Cooked jasmine rice, to serve
For the black bean sauce
Groundnut oil - 1 tbsp
Garlic cloves - 2
Grated ginger - 2 tbsp
Fermented black beans, rinsed and crushed with the back of a spoon (or use 100g black bean sauce instead) - 2 tbsp
Shaohsing rice wine - 1 tbsp
Light soy sauce
Toasted sesame oil - 3 tbsp
Spring onions, shredded - 2
Handful coriander, leaves picked - 1 small
Wash the fish in cold running water.
Pat dry with kitchen paper, then slash 3-4 slits into the skin on both sides.
Season all over with salt and ground white pepper.
Place ginger slices in the slits of the fish and inside the cavity.
Place the fish on a plate that fits inside your wok.
In your wok place a pudding bowl upside down and pour water to come halfway up.
Place the wok on the heat and bring the water to a boil.
Pour the rice wine over the fish, put the plate onto the upside-down bowl and place the lid of the wok on top.
Steam on high heat for 8-9 minutes, then leave to rest.
While the fish is cooking, make the black bean sauce.
Add the groundnut oil to a hot wok or frying pan.
When it starts to smoke, add the garlic, ginger and beans (or use 100g ready-made black bean sauce) and stir-fry for a few seconds.
Add the rice wine, sesame oil and light soy sauce, then bring to the bubble.
Carefully remove the fish (you can keep it on the plate that you cooked it on).
Garnish with the spring onions and coriander, then drizzle over the black bean sauce and serve with rice.
- It is advised to clean and scale the fish properly
