Submit a photo for the recipe: Chinese Steamed Trout with Black Beans Serves/Makes: 4


  • 2 trout, about 12 ounces each, cleaned with heads left on
  • 4 thin slices fresh ginger root, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons fermented black beans, rinsed and partially mashed with 1/2 teaspoon sugar and 1 teaspoon Shaohsing wine; leave some beans whole
  • 4 to 6 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped fine
  • 2 or 3 scallions, cut into small rounds
  • 4 tablespoons peanut or corn oil
  • 2 tablespoons thick soy sauce
How to cook Chinese Steamed Trout with Black Beans:
  • Pat the trout dry. Lay them on a heatproof serving dish with slightly raised sides. Place 2 slices of ginger in the cavity of each fish.
  • Mix together the black beans and garlic, and spread on the fish.
  • Steam in a wok or steamer over high heat for 6 to 8 minutes, until the fish is cooked and the flesh flakes easily.
  • Remove from the heat and sprinkle with the scallions.
  • Heat the oil in a small saucepan over high heat until smoke rises. Pour it over the scallions. The sizzling oil partially cooks them, enhancing the flavor.
  • Remove the fish from the wok or steamer. Add the soy sauce.
  • To serve, scrape the condiments on the fish to the side. Peel and discard the uppermost skin. Spoon some of the condiments and sauce back on the steamed trout and serve.
