Cá Tuyết Hấp Gừng Hành

Steamed Sea Bass with Ginger and Green Onion

1 slice Sea bass (10-12 oz)

Clean and place Sea bass in a large shallow bowl. Sprinkle some salt and pepper on the fish. Add soy sauce, sake, vegetable oil, some sugar, ginger, green onion (white head only, leave green part for garnishing) into the bowl.
Fill some water in a wok or a skillet that deep enough (or one has a big lid cover) to hold the bowl and some room for the steam, place bowl in, cover. Bring to a boil over medium high heat then reduce to medium heat to let the fish steam for 10-15'.
Turn off heat and remove the fish bowl. Drop some sesame oil in, sprinkle some green onions shreds on top then serve.

anonymous: Thanks for your kind words. I used to stack pizza and chinese take-out boxes at home too but I found cooking can be fun (in my case it also brings back sweet memories from home and from mom). Trust me, anyone can cook ("so can you").
dao: thank you, please come back. You made me feel like having guests over for dinner :) (so proud)
