Directions

  1. Bring about 1 1/2 inches of water to boil in a pot fitted with a steamer basket.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the chile, garlic, ginger, and black bean sauce. Stir in dark and white soy sauces, vegetable oil, sugar, and white pepper. In a small cup, mix together the cornstarch and water. Stir into the sauce. Cut fish fillets into thin strips, add to bowl, and coat well.
  3. When water in steamer has reached a boil, carefully place the tofu cubes in a single layer in the basket, and steam, covered, for 2 minutes. Place the fish strips on top of the tofu; cover and steam for another 3 minutes.
  4. Remove and garnish with chopped green onion. Serve with steamed white rice and stir-fried or steamed Asian vegetables.

Excellent and easy for a very novice cook. I added some Sesame Oil to the black bean sauce for extra oriental zest.

The ingredient list was a bit daunting, but we just jumped right in and WOW was this wonderful. I followed the recipe to the letter and the result was amazing!

The marinate/sauce was really really good but I didn't much care for the texture of the steamed fish, and the tofu was just blah. Will try it again with baked fish and will omit the tofu altogether. Thanks anyway.

We didn't want the leftovers, and that speaks a bit to the quality of the dish.
