Steamed Fish With Garlic/Ginger Paste

Again fresh fish from my hubby's fishing trip.  Two garoupa fish that weighs about 500-600 gm in  total.  Since it is so fresh, the best way to cook is by steaming with the least ingredients.  So I used garlic/ginger paste and some greens to bring out the natural sweetness of the fish.

Garoupa fish [about 500-600 gm] - scaled and cleaned
Gravy and Seasoning
50 gm ginger - finely chopped
5-6 cloves garlic - finely chopped
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp sugar to taste
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp cooking wine 
1 tbsp Mei Kwai Lo [Rose Wine]
1 tbsp sesame oil
some shredded carrot, young ginger
some spring onion and coriander - sectioned
  1. Either chopped garlic and ginger finely or blended.  Mix with the rest of the seasoning ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Pat dry cleaned fish and place on a heatproof dish.  Spread the gravy and seasoning mix all over the fish.
  3. Steam over high heat for 12-15 minutes [depending on the size of fish] or until fish is just cooked through.
  4. Garnish with the rest of ingredients before serving.

I like to steam fish when the fish is very fresh, simple seasoning already very nice!
