Steamed Sweet And Sour Sea Bream On Greens
Here is another easy and deliciously healthy recipe Sea bream is one of the healthiest of fish. It’s full of essential nutrients and very easy to digest. Put it on a bed of vitamin-packed Chinese greens and you have a wonderfully light but sustaining meal. All it needs is a portion of rice as an accompaniment and you have a delightful dish that would be perfect for a romantic dinner!
You can use a proper steamer, but I find that the traditional Chinese baskets in a wok containing water work perfectly – as in the photo.
450g/ 1 lb Chinese greens (kale, Brussels tops or spring greens will do if you don’t have the fabulous Oriental veg growing in your gourmet garden)
4 spring onions
2.5cm/ 1 in fresh ginger, finely grated
2 sea bream, filleted
60ml/4 tbspns light soy sauce
30ml/ tbspns Worcestershire sauce
15ml/1 tbspn runny honey
2 cloves garlic, very finely chopped
Trim any tough outer leaves from the Chinese greens.
Wash the remainder thoroughly.
Mix together with the spring onions and ginger and put into a steamer with several inches of water in the main pan.
Lay the fish on top of the vegetables. Cover and steam for about 10 minutes, until the fish is translucent.
While it’s cooking, make the dressing by whisking together the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey and garlic.
Carefully remove the fish from the steamer. Lay the vegetables on serving plates. Place the fish on top and pour over the dressing.
Trace elements like Iodine are essential, but hard to find. This Super healthy fish dish provides it plus lots of iron and beta carotene from the greens and heart protective nutrients from the garlic.
Fish, ginger, honey, soy and garlic are all traditional aphrodisiacs in the Far East, so don’t say I did not warn you!
