"This is a basic and common Chinese recipe for steamed fish. My father taught me how to make this; it is easy to prepare, hard to mess up, and very versatile. Serve over white rice, using some of the sauce mixture from the steaming bowl."

I was going to submit an almost identical recipe. I don't have a steamer though so this is how I do it. I put about 1 tbs grated ginger and 2 cloves garlic in pan warm in 1 cup warm chicken broth for about 1-2 min when comes to boil add about 2tbs soy sause, add catfish cover with sliced mushrooms and diagonally cut green onions spoon broth over fish cover cook about 5 min. FABULOUS. SUPER EASY. LOW CAL
Nope. This did not work. There are better ways to make halibut. A lot of work for a little bit of flavor. Nice idea but I won't make again.
This recipe is as it says: easy to prepare and hard to mess up. I used this on a Japanese bass and it turned out perfectly. I was a little more generous with the soy sauce than the recipe called for and spread the ginger throughout the fish -- inside and out. One additional tip: make 1" vertical slices along the length of the fish (both sides) to allow the flavor to really get into the fish. Definitely making this again!
Used my electric wok with the steamer rack. Placed ingredients in a round cake pan, leaving enough room around the perimiter to allow the steam to circulate. Makes a good amount of its own juice when cooking - delicious. The sauce is thin like a broth, so serve with plenty of rice or noodles. I grated the ginger root instead of sliced it, used about 1T or so. May want to add some more cabbage if there is room in the pan. Easy clean up, healthy too!
I didn't have a steamer or cabbage so I took the suggestion to use chicken broth with grated ginger, garlic, pepper flakes, soy sauce but no add'l water. I used more mushrooms,('cause I love 'em)but everything else the same. Cooks fast (5 min.) and my family loved it! Next time I would go with 2lbs. of halibut for our family of three. Hubby and I were fighting over the last piece. Great recipe, thanks!
i gave it a four cuz to me it lacks of flavour.. so the next time i tried i added some ground black pepper, sesame oil, and also some bell peppers. im not a fan of cabbages so i use carrots instead... n it turned out so GREAT! my family jus love this dish.. def a keeper.
I made this for myself and my father tonight and we liked it a lot! And he likes fried fish but I said we have to eat healthier. He said I could make it again anytime!
I didn't have a steamer so I baked it instead. The red pepper flakes add a little kick.
