From Diana Henry's A Change of Appetite comes this simple steamed fish dish with big flavours for this week's I Heart Cooking Clubs' theme of Happy & Healthy dishes.
A quick mix of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and sugar formed both fish marinade and sauce for the finished dish. Fresh ginger was added to the marinade for an extra punch of flavour and the fish was steamed in this mixture. To keep the dish low fat, Diana suggests steaming the garnish of fresh ginger, scallions and red chiles rather than frying them. I compromised by using a small amount of oil and rather than pouring it over fish, used it to stir fry some savoy cabbage for a side dish while the fish steamed.
Pretty to look at and delicious to eat, this recipe was very healthy and made everyone very happy (especially the cook who put it on the table in less than 30 minutes!)....a great way to start the new year!
