Oven-Steamed Fish with ginger and olive oil

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 large scallions, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • One 4 1/2-pound whole red snapper, cleaned
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese black vinegar or balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425º. In a small bowl, combine the cilantro with the garlic, scallions, ginger, lemon zest, salt and pepper. On a sturdy baking sheet, spread a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil large enough to wrap loosely around the fish. Sprinkle one-third of the cilantro mixture lengthwise down the center of the foil. Set the fish on the mixture and sprinkle another third on top. Drizzle the lemon juice over the fish and fold up the foil sides and ends, forming a loose but well sealed packet. Bake the fish for 40 minutes, or until cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the olive oil with the soy sauce and vinegar and warm over moderate heat.

    Carefully open the fish packet and pour off the juices. Transfer the fish to a large platter and sprinkle with the remaining cilantro mixture. Pour the sauce over the fish and serve at once.

Green Tea Poached Fish

Ingredients

  • 4 cups green tea
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons minced white onion

  1. To make green tea, pour hot but not boiling water over tea bags and steep for five minutes. Use one tea bag for every 8 ounces (1 cup) hot water. In a deep skillet, simmer green tea, ginger, garlic and onion for 10 minutes. Salt and pepper the fish, and place the steaks gently into the poaching liquid. Adjust heat to a gentle simmer, and cook steaks 8-10 minutes until fish is slightly translucent. Remove fish. Serve with Green Tea Vinaigrette or with mayonnaise thinned with white wine vinegar and finely grated fresh ginger. Good accompaniments include hot brown rice and sauteed scallions.
