adapted from: http://www.kitchendaily.com/recipe/ginger-steamed-fish-with-troy-s-hana-style-sauce-74348#ixzz0taRAbaK9 This shoyu-based sauce with fresh ginger, garlic and sesame is a Hana classic. Aloha Shoyu is the preferred brand at the hotel. (We use reduced-sodium soy sauce to keep the sodium in check.) Chef David Patterson prepares the dish with onaga, a red snapper only found in the Hawaiian waters; it's tender, sweet and mild in flavor. We found that halibut and other white fish were also delicious. Serve with steamed brown rice and Green Papaya Salad.

Recipe Ingredients for Ginger-Steamed Halibut

1 lb halibut
1 oz fresh ginger
2 T minced fresh ginger
1 T chopped garlic
2 T sesame seeds
2 t grapeseed oil or canola oil
2 t toasted sesame oil
2 T reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 scallions

Recipe Directions for Ginger-Steamed Halibut

  1. To prepare fish: Bring 1 to 2 inches of water to a boil in a pot large enough to hold a two-tier bamboo steamer. (If you don't have a steamer, improvise by setting mugs upside down in a large pot and resting a large heatproof plate on top.) Put a heatproof plate in the steamer baskets. Place portions of fish on each plate with a slice of fresh ginger on top. Cover and set over the boiling water. Steam the fish for 7 minutes per inch of thickness.

  2. To prepare sauce: Meanwhile, combine minced ginger, garlic and sesame seeds in a small bowl. Heat grapeseed (or canola) oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ginger mixture and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add sesame oil; allow the mixture to get hot. Add soy sauce (be careful, it will splatter a bit) and cook for 1 minute more.

  3. Transfer the fish to a deep platter. Discard the ginger slices. Pour the sauce over the fish and garnish with scallions.
