Stacking fish and vegetables in a multilevel steamer lets you cook everything simultaneously. Red snapper or trout are good alternatives to black bass.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk together soy sauce and sesame oil in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Cut a few slits into the fish on both sides using a sharp paring knife. Transfer to dish; turn to coat.

  • Toss ginger with scallions; stuff some into each fish cavity. Spread remaining mixture on top of fish. Let stand, covered, spooning marinade over fish often, for 30 minutes.

  • Bring water to a boil in a large skillet or wok. Arrange red onion on bottom layer of a 12-inch bamboo steamer. Remove fish from marinade with ginger-scallion mixture still on top, and arrange side by side on onion; reserve marinade. Spread sweet potato and Broccolini on separate sides of the top layer.

  • Set stacked steamer in skillet. Steam, covered, until fish is cooked through and vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, bring marinade to a boil in a small saucepan. Cook until reduced by half. Strain through a fine sieve. Serve fish and vegetables with reduced sauce.
