Steps

  • Season the fillets on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Spread the tops with black bean paste.
  • Place fish into heatproof dish, add sake and steam for 10 minutes over high heat in a steamer.
  • While fish is steaming, use a vegetable peeler to slice the ginger into very thin slices, then use knife to julienne into thin slivers.
  • When fish is finished, remove the dish from the steamer and pour the accumulated cooking liquid onto a large deep plate for serving. Top the ginger slivers and the chives over the fish.
  • In a small frying pan, heat up the olive oil and sesame oil until just before it begins to smoke, then pour it over the fish. The chives and ginger should sizzle.
  • Transfer the fish to the plates containing the reserved steaming liquid and serve.
