About this recipe: This is an utterly delicious and simple fish recipe. Halibut is steamed with ginger and seasoned with spring onions, soy sauce, sesame oil and fresh coriander.


Makes: 2 - 3 servings

  • 450g fillet halibut
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced spring onions
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon groundnut oil
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 4 tablespoons fresh coriander sprigs

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:27min 

  1. Pat halibut dry with kitchen towels. Rub both sides of fillet with salt. Scatter the ginger over the top of the fish and place onto a heatproof ceramic dish.
  2. Place into a bamboo steamer set over several centimetres of gently boiling water and cover. Gently steam for 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Pour accumulated water out of the dish and sprinkle the fillet with spring onion. Drizzle both soy sauces over the surface of the fish.
  4. Heat groundnut and sesame oils in a small frying pan over medium-high heat until they begin to smoke. When the oil is hot, carefully pour on top of the halibut fillet. The very hot oil will cause the spring onions and water on top of the fish to pop and spatter all over - be careful. Garnish with coriander sprigs and serve immediately.
