Oven Steamed Rock Cod

Print Friendly and PDF
Here's a great recipe for Chinese-style steamed fish. It is so delicious, turns out moist and is easy to make. It is going to be my go-to recipe for steamed fish. Just wrap it in foil, and steam it in the oven. I used a rock cod, but this recipe would work for red snapper or tilapia.

1 whole rock cod, approximately 2 lbs.
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup peanut oil
1 T sesame oil
3-4 T finely chopped fresh ginger
Green onions, chopped, as garnish
Cilantro, chopped, as garnish

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Rinse off the fish, and pat it dry with paper towels. Place it on a large piece of foil on a cookie sheet. Cut three diagonal slits on each side of the fish. Mix the soy sauce, peanut oil, sesame oil and ginger, and pour over the fish. Carefully wrap the fish and sauce in the foil, sealing the foil packet tightly.  Place it in the oven for 25 minutes. Top with cilantro and green onions before serving.
