Preparing the Fish
1. If using fresh fish, ask to have the fish cleaned, gutted, and descaled.
2. Rinse the fish under water until no more blood is visible. Pat dry with paper towels.
3. Make a few cuts on both sides and stuff the inside with white parts of scallions and ginger slices.
4. Place the remaining scallions and ginger onto a heat-proof plate and put the fish on top.
5. Steam over high heat for 7 1/2 minutes. Adjust the time depending on the weight and thickness of the fish. Mine was a little over 1.5 lbs.
6. Carefully pour off the liquid and discard the scallions and ginger.
Preparing the Sauce
1. To a small saucepan, add the listed ingredients to make the seasoned soy sauce.
Final Steps
1. Place scallions, ginger, and red peppers on top of the fish. Pour heated oil on top of the aromatics, followed by the sauce around the fish.
2. Serve with rice.
