  • 1 fresh water fish , no more than 800g
  • 1 thumb ginger , shredded
  • 2 tbsp. hot vegetable cooking oil
  • 3 tbsp. fermented chili sauce
  • 2 tbsp. cooking wine
  • 1/2 tbsp. oyster sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves , chopped
  • 2 green onions , chopped
  • 2 tbsp vegetable cooking oil
  • 1/2 tbsp. fermented black beans
  1. Clean the fish and then cut a small line to separate the thick meat. And add some shredded ginger (both on the surface and inside the stomach)

  2. In a small pan, add around 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and then fry garlic, spring onion for a while. Add chili sauce and fermented black beans. Fry until aromatic. Then add 2 tablespoons of cooking wine and 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce. Mix well.

  3. Spread the sauce over the fish. And then steam over middle fire for 8 to 10 minutes.

  4. Spread some chopped green onion. Heat around 2 tablespoons of hot oil and pour over the fish. This can improve the flavor. Do not be scared by the image, I do not use all of the oil for the fish.
