From: arielle@... (Stephanie da Silva) Date: Wed, 4 Aug 93 22:28:12 CDT Cut deep gashes into the sides of the fish, about ¾ inch (2 cm) apart; it does not matter if the gashes hit the bone. Rub the salt all over the fish, inside the cavity as well as on the skin outside, then put the fish on a plate or in a shallow bowl.

Slice the ginger thinly. Clean the scallions, then cut into 1 inch (2-½ cm) lengths. Put half the scallions and ginger into the cavity of the fish. Carefully sprinkle the soy sauce and sesame oil over the fish, then spread the rest of the ginger and scallions on top.

Pour one or two inches (2-½ or 5 cm) of water into a wok. Put the plate in a steamer tray and set the tray over the water. Sprinkle the wine or sherry over the fish. Bring the water to a boil, then cover the steamer and steam the fish for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the steamer carefully and serve the fish immediately. REC.FOOD.RECIPES ARCHIVES
