Steamed Snapper with Black Bean Sauce

My husband used to like a certain canned fermented black bean fish till he had food poisoning. He was the only person who ate that and the only person who had food poisoning. So we gathered that canned fish was the culprit. Anyway, that particularly brand is nowhere to be found now. My husband said that the other available brand tasted horrible. Since he missed his fermented black bean fish so much, I came up with a replacement. Taste-wise might not be the same. At least, it's healthier. Okay lah. He kinda like it after having it for dinner. *wink* Ingredients:
  • 150g Snapper Fillet
  • 1 tablespoon Fermented Black Bean, smashed
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Grated Ginger
  • 1/2 tablespoon Cooking Wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon Light Soy Sauce
  • Few drops of Sesame Seed Oild
How to do it:
  1. Combine all ingredients except snapper and oil together.
  2. Place snapper on foil.
  3. Spread mixture on snapper.
  4. Seal foil.
  5. Steam for 8 minutes or till cooked.
  6. Remove from foil and drizzle with sesame seed oil.
  7. Serve with rice.
