Steamed rockfish with hoisin & spinach

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
Stephen Ceideburg
2 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons Sesame oil
¼ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Finely grated orange peel
1⅓ pounds Rockfish fillets
8 Spinach leaves, stems removed, washed and patted dry
4 Lemon wedges

Combine the hoisin sauce, sesame oil, salt and orange peel. Spread on the fish fillets. Top with the spinach leaves.

Place the fish on a rack set above boiling water. (A roasting pan fitted with a rectangular cake rack, set above the water can be used for this purpose. Or use a bamboo steamer.) Cover with foil and steam 12 minutes per inch of thickness, or until the fish tests done (140 degrees on an instant read thermometer).

Serve with the lemon wedges.

Note: The same type of cooking preparation can be used for steaming the fish simply with a little soy sauce, a sprinkling of orange or lemon juice, and thinly sliced green onions.
