The bamboo steamer is one of those kitchen tools that just gets better with age. You can use it to make steamed fish, like we did here or even leche flan. The steamer also allows you to cook veggies and proteins in one shot allowing you to save gas. Department stores usually carry only small to medium steamers. To find larger ones, heat to specialty stores anywhere. This is one great help in the kitchen that does well every time.


You will need:

1 medium-size fresh grouper, king fish, or tilapia

1/8 cup shredded ginger

4 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons rice wine

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon peanut oil or canola oil

1/8 cup shredded green onions

1/8 cup cilantro leaves, picked and washed

Here's how:

1) Score cleaned fish and place on a plate. Evenly distribute the shredded ginger inside the cavity of the fish and outside the fish.

2) Place a large bamboo steamer and pour soy sauce and rice wine on the fish. Steam for 15 minutes.

3) In another pan, heat sesame and peanut or canola oil together. When fish has been steamed, pour hot oil all over the fish, as if bathing it.

4) Top with the fresh herbs and serve hot with steaming white rice.
