Steamed Cod with Ginger Hoisin Sauce




This was a dish I had over the weekend at a local restaurant called Mitchell's Fish Market. The dish was so good that I knew I had to have it again soon!! I think my recipe comes very close to the real thing. At the restaurant I had Sea Bass, but they didn't have that at my grocery store so I bought cod. This dish came together very quickly and is very good for the waistline!!! I used my rice cooker to make the rice, and I used the steamer attachment to cook the fish.


Steamed Cod with Ginger Hoisin Sauce

1 fillet of Cod (a little over a lb)
2 scallions
2 inches ginger
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup garlic hoisin sauce
1 tsp red chili flakes
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp honey
6 oz fresh spinach
white rice
salt, pepper

Cook rice according to rice cooker directions. Cut fillet into 4 portions. Season with salt and pepper. Cut 1 scallion into matchsticks, and chop the second into a fine dice. Also slice about 1 inch of ginger into matchsticks, and grate the other inch with a microplane. Add fish to steamer basket and sprinkle with the matchstick ginger and scallion. Place on top of rice and steam for about 5-6 minutes. Meanwhile add soy sauce, hoisin, vinegar, honey, scallions and chili flakes into small saucepan and heat on low until fish is cooked. Add spinach to saucepan and wilt for about the last minute.
