Simple Steamed Pomfret

This is a recipe I got from the Kuali website. I tagged it under 'quick and easy meals' because that's just what it is. I think the hardest part about this dish is actually buying the fish and paying for it!

What you need:

1 medium-sized white pomfret
3/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp finely chopped ginger
2 dried Chinese mushrooms, soaked and sliced thinly
2 stalks spring onion, cut into 3cm lengths
Dash of pepper

In a bowl mix the following:
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp oyster sauce
1 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp sugar
1-2 tbsp water

What to do:
1) Clean fish (I make sure the lady at the pasar cleans it for me!). Make two slits on either side of the body. Rub fish inside and out with salt and ginger and set aside for 15 minutes
2) Place fish on heatproof dish, then pour contents of bowl over it.
3) Arrange sliced mushrooms and spring onion around the fish. Add a generous dash of pepper.
4) Fill a wok with water until slightly less than half full, cover and bring to a slight boil. Open cover, and place a steaming rack in the wok.
5) Place the fish on the rack. Cover the wok and steam fish for about 10-15 minutes. Serve immediately.

Tip: The time used to steam your fish depends on the intensity of the flame used. I used a medium flame and steamed for about 13 mins. Results are awesome. I served it with white rice, the sauce acts as a gravy for the rice. Delish!
