Serves: 2 - 4

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes


  • 1 whole white fish (sea bass, branzino, or flounder)
  • 15g sliced ginger
  • 15g sliced chilli
  • 1 tbsp Shaoxing wine
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 25g chopped spring onions
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce


  • Clean and rinse the fish, then pat dry with kitchen paper.
  • Season the fish on a plate with sliced ginger and chilli, Shaoxing wine and vegetable oil.
  • Set a steamer into a wok. Fill with 5 cm of water, place over a high heat and bring to boil.
  • Reduce the heat slightly and place the fish, still on the plate, onto the steamer. Cover the wok tightly and gently steam for 10 minutes.
  • The fish will turn opaque and flake slightly but remain moist.
  • Take the plate out and drain off any liquid. Scatter the spring onions over the fish and then drizzle with the soy sauce.
