I love to steam my fish in the oven. It is no fuss, no cleaning, super easy and ready in 10 minutes, who wouldn't love this method as compared to the traditional Chinese steaming method using a wok? To steamed fish, you just need to cover the whole fish in the aluminum foil and let it steam in the oven. After you done eating, just fold and toss away the aluminum foil. As easy as that! I was trying a new recipe for my steamed fish and it turned out so good so I would share it here and for my own record. It was a little spicy from the chili oil but not too bad, even my girls had no problem eating it. The saltiness came from the black bean and soy sauce. And I loved lots of ginger and garlic for extra flavor.
- Fish fillet(s) of your choice
- 1-2 Tbsp. Black bean in chili oil
- 1 Tbsp. White cooking wine
- 1.5 tsp. Soy sauce
- 2-inch size of ginger, chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
- One big piece of aluminum foil
1. Preheat the oven at 450'F. Then go prepare the fish fillet(s).
2. In a baking pan, lay the aluminum foil on top. Place the fish fillet(s) in. Fold the sides up so that the sauce wouldn't run out. Top the fish with chopped ginger and garlic. Then top it with black bean in chili oil, white wine and soy sauce. Fold the sides of aluminum foil together and seal it.
3. Place the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes. When done, be careful when you open the seals as the steam would come out and it is pretty hot. Serve hot.
