Cá Mặn Chưng Gừng

Steamed Salted Mackerel with Ginger

7 oz salted mackerel
1/2 lb lean pork, minced
1/2 yellow onion, minced
2 stalks scallion, chopped
1 piece ginger, julienned
fresh ground pepper, fish sauce, sugar to taste

Mix pork, onion, scallion, 1/2 T fish sauce, sugar, pepper well (add some vegetable oil, optional) in a bowl. Place salted mackerel on the pork mixture, top with ginger and some grounded pepper.

If you don't have a steamer pot, use a medium pot with 1-11/2 cup water and place the fish bowl in (make sure the water level is lower than the bowl's rim). The fish should be cooked in 20-25 minutes. I serve this dish with steamed rice and assorted steamed vegetable.
