Spicy Steamed Striped Bass with Black Bean

Copyright 2007 by Cooking With The Single Guy

6 oz. striped sea bass fillet
½ t grounded white pepper
1 T black bean sauce
½ T fresh ginger, julienned
1 Serrano chili, seeded and julienned
½ T sesame oil
1 T fish sauce

Season your fish fillet with pepper and then smear the black bean sauce on top. Place on a plate and place in a steamer. Add ginger and chili to the top and then drizzle with fish sauce and sesame oil. Steam for about 10 minute, depending on the thickness of your fillets.

Serve on top of cucumber and pickled ginger salad.

Makes 1 to 2 servings. Pair with a glass of Chardonnay.

TIP: If you want your fish to have more heat, then don’t discard the seeds in the chili and instead cut the chili in thin pieces with the seeds for that extra punch.
