Ginger-Steamed Fish with Troy's Hana-Style Sauce

This shoyu-based sauce with fresh ginger, garlic and sesame is a Hana classic. Aloha Shoyu is the preferred brand at the hotel. (We use reduced-sodium soy sauce to keep the sodium in check.) Chef David Patterson prepares the dish with onaga, a red snapper only found in the Hawaiian waters; it’s tender, sweet and mild in flavor. We found that halibut and other white fish were also delicious. Serve with steamed brown rice and Green Papaya Salad.

Serves 6

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 6 5-ounce po striped bass, halibut or any flaky white fish
  • 6 1/4-inch-t peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup chopped garlic
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoon grapeseed oil, or canola oil
  • 2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2-3 scallions, thinly sliced, for garnish

Cooking Directions

Step 1

To prepare fish: Bring 1 to 2 inches of water to a boil in a pot large enough to hold a two-tier bamboo steamer. (If you don’t have a steamer, improvise by setting mugs upside down in a large pot and resting a large heatproof plate on top.) Put a heatproof plate in each of the steamer baskets. Place 3 portions of fish on each plate with a slice of fresh ginger on top. Stack the baskets, cover and set over the boiling water. Steam the fish for 7 minutes per inch of thickness.

Step 2

To prepare sauce: Meanwhile, combine minced ginger, garlic and sesame seeds in a small bowl. Heat grapeseed (or canola) oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ginger mixture and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add sesame oil; allow the mixture to get hot. Add soy sauce (be careful, it will splatter a bit) and cook for 1 minute more.

Step 3

Transfer the fish to a deep platter. Discard the ginger slices. Pour the sauce over the fish and garnish with scallions.
