greetings from hotter 'n hell Texas.. trying your sea bass recipe tonight. you were so enthusiastic about it and it sounded great .got the steamer and all fixins.. liquor store suggested cream Sherry as the 'sweet' kind... hope it's so.. will try to post results..
for those who might be interested.. below is original post of recipe..
a little background . . a couple of weeks ago i was at a restaurant and had something called hong kong sea bass. ..menu said: sea bass steamed on bed of lettuce with ginger and scallions and served with broth of sherry and soy sauce. ..frankly it was the best fish i'd eaten in a restaurant in many years ....new i had to duplicate it in the egg. ..
so. .. i bought a traditional oriental bamboo steamer (two level with lid). .. .ran some water all over it so it wouldn't get burned in the egg. .. set up my large egg with my wok ring and center fire, about 350 degrees dome temp. ..laid a big bed of fresh baby spinich and a couple of filets of sea bass on each of the steamer trays along with some slivers of fresh ginger and scallions. . .poured about 1 cup of sherry and about 1/3 cup of soy sauce into the cold wok and then set the steamer basket set in the wok over the liquid. ...set the whole thing in the wok ring and closed the dome for about 15 minutes ... .
pulled the entire wok set up out after about 15 minutes, careful not to lose the broth in the wok. .. .plated the fish on top of the wilted spinach (oh, btw, use lots of spinach, it really shrinks down). ..and the spooned some of the broth on top ...
my wife LOVED it .. .we agreed it may be the best fish i've ever made and ranks right up with some of the best egg food i've ever made. .. .
