I have always loved Chinese food. It's easy to cook and the flavors are just so delightful! I knew I wanted to cook fish but I was tired of having to fry it. So this time, I will steam... Chinese style!
I love that the Sole fillet has a buttery texture when steamed. It's affordable and they sell them filleted already so you wouldn't have to fillet them yourself. I like buying Sole fillets from Cold Storage because it's not fishy even after you cook it! (Read On by clicking Read More -->)
Yield: 2-3 Persons

2 medium size Sole fillets, sliced into small rectangles
1 Tbsp sliced ginger (matchstick type)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup hot water
2 Tbsp white sugar
1 Tbsp miso paste
1/4 cup neutral flavored oil like Canola, Soy, or Vegetable
1 Tbsp Sesame oil
1 whole garlic minced
2 Stalks Onion leeks thinly sliced diagonally



Prepare the ginger and leeks, and set aside. Chop the garlic in a chopper, and set aside.


Place the ginger on a sheet of foil and put the sliced fillets on top of it. Cover the fillets with foil and put on top of the steamer.

3. Use a fork to puncture a few holes on top of the foil before covering the steamer.

When the fish is done, pour off the excess liquid that is accumulated in the foil after the fish is cooked, transfer the fillets in a serving dish together with the ginger and set aside.


In a sauce pan, combine the soy sauce, water and sugar, and bring to a simmer. Add the miso, and stir constantly until the miso has melted. Set aside.


 In a small non-stick pan, heat the 1/4 cup vegetable oil and fry the garlic. Add the sesame oil and keep sauteing until the garlic has turned golden brown. Do not burn the garlic, otherwise, it will release a very bitter taste instead of roast-y.

7. Lay the garlic and oil mixture on top of the fish, the hot oil will cook the onion leeks a little bit, but won't make it soggy. Serve hot.

I in addition to my buddies happened to be digesting the exceptional points located on your web site and then all of the sudden I had an awful feeling I never expressed respect towards the web site owner for them. All the men were absolutely thrilled to read via them and have now in truth been having fun with them. Thank you for in fact being indeed kind and then for obtaining this kind of excellent helpful guides many people are really desperate to know about. My honest regret for not expressing appreciation to earlier.
