Steamed Hake with Soy, Ginger, Spring Onions and Chilli Oil


Steamed Hake with Soy, Ginger, Spring Onions and Chilli Oil . This Chinese inspired Steamed Hake recipe is healthy, delicious and full of flavour. Hake is steamed in a soy based sauce until just flaking apart. It is then topped with sizzling oil with spring onions and ginger. Finally, chilli oil is drizzled on top. It is worth sourcing authentic Sichuan spicy chilli oil which can be found in Asian supermarkets for this dish, which contains various ingredients including garlic, sesame, soy and crispy chillies for deep, savoury finish to this fish dish.

  3. Put the hake fillets on top of the grease proof paper and pour over the soy mixture. Put half the spring onion and the chopped ginger in too.
  4. Place the steamer over a pan of simmering water. Steam for 10-12 minutes depending on the size of the hake fillets.
  5. When the hake is cooked, take the steamer off the heat.
