Ginger Scallion Chinese Steamed Whole Fish

By: Louise Hendon from
Ginger Scallion Chinese Steamed Whole Fish
Ginger Scallion Chinese Steamed Whole Fish

"Cook a whole fish with this easy Chinese method. There’s a Chinese CSA type program in the Bay Area, and we’ve been able to pick up super fresh whole fish to steam! Make sure to throw away the sauce the fish is steamed in and serve with fresh sauce and newly sautéed ginger and scallions. You can also make this recipe AIP easily by omitting the peppercorns and chili peppers and using coconut aminos instead of tamari gluten-free soy sauce."

Yields2 Servings

Preparation Time15 min

Cooking Time12 min


  • 1 1 whole fish, cleaned
  • 1 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup scallions, chopped into thin strips (divide into 2 parts)
  • 1 2 Tablespoons ginger, chopped into thin strips (divide into 2 parts)
  • 1 2 Tablespoons ginger, chopped into thin strips (divide into 2 parts)
  • 1 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 2 red chili peppers, sliced (optional – omit for AIP)
  • 1 20 Szechuan peppercorns (optional – omit for AIP)
  • 1 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  1. Clean the fish (remove scales and remove insides) (or ask your fishmonger to clean it for you). You can chop off the head if you want and use it to make a fish soup. Cut slits in both sides of the fish and rub the salt into it.

  2. Place the fish on a plate and pour 1/4 cup of the tamari soy sauce (or coconut aminos) onto the fish along with half the scallions and ginger. Place water into your steamer – place the plate into the steamer when the water starts boiling.

  3. Steam for 12 minutes.

  4. Pour the avocado oil into a frying pan on high heat. Add in the Szechuan peppercorns, the chili peppers, and the rest of the ginger and scallions.

  5. Make the new sauce using the rest of the tamari soy sauce (1/4 cup) and the sesame oil.

  6. Remove the steamed fish (throw away the sauce the fish was steamed in). Pour the new sauce on the fish, top with the sautéed chili, ginger, and scallions and serve.
