  • 1 whole tilapia (about 3 pounds) or other small, firm, white fish (such as black bass), gutted and scaled
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, julienned
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil
  • Steamed white rice
  • Garnish: 3 scallions, thinly sliced at an angle


Score the fish four or five times on both sides. Rub with garlic, ginger, and soy sauce. Place in steamer basket over simmering water and steam about 15 minutes. In a separate pan, heat oil over high heat. Pour over fish. Serve on a platter with steamed white rice, and scatter scallions over top.
