    Have had raves about this from guests. Ran across recipe on


    Many have asked if I can make next time they visit


    Makes 4 servings.




    • 4 fillets sea bass (about 6 oz each), skin removed
    • Sea salt
    • Pinch of cayenne pepper
    • 1/4 cup fresh ginger, cut into thin strips
    • 1 cup finely sliced shiitakes
    • 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
    • 4 green onions, sliced diagonally
    • 2 tbsp regular or chile-infused sesame oil
    • 1/2 cup soy sauce

    Bring water to a boil under a metal or bamboo steamer. Sprinkle sea bass with salt, black pepper, and cayenne; place on a piece of parchment paper inside steamer. Top with ginger and shiitakes, cover and steam 15 minutes**. Remove fish and place on a plate. Sprinkle cilantro and green onions on fish; drizzle with juices from parchment. In a small sauté pan, heat oil over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until smoking. Pour some oil over each fillet to wilt cilantro and green onions. Drizzle plates with soy sauce.

    ** Alternate prep for the Seabass is to Grill it on Medium High for 4 min per side or until opaque.
