  • 1 tsp caster sugar

  • 1 knob ginger shredded

  • 1 chilli shredded

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp rice wine or dry sherry

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 1 handful coriander leaves (to serve)

  • 2 spring onions finely chopped

  • 600g firm fish (cod, salmon or coley would all work well)


  1. Cut the fish into bite-sized chunks and toss in the salt and pepper.
  2. Combine the soy, sesame oil, rice wine, sugar, chilli, ginger, garlic and half the spring onions, and toss the fish well. Leave for 15 minutes.
  3. Put on a heatproof plate in a bamboo steamer and steam over simmering water for 10 minutes until cooked, turning the fish once.
  4. Scatter with coriander and the remaining spring onions and serve with the juices and steamed rice.

Handy Hint

If you don't have a bamboo steamer, you can wrap the fish up with the marinade and steam it in a foil parcel in the oven for 15 minutes at 200C.

    OMG - a meal that the whole family enjoyed, this is a first! All three dc's ( 2-8) asked for more and asked for it again tonight. Omitted the chilli, cooked in the oven in foil - dead easy and ate with noodles and stir fried veggies for the adults. Big hit - thank you. Will be making this more often.
