Sweet And Sour Sea Bream On Greens

Serves 2

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.


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.

We have a set of Chinese bamboo steamers and lids which are inexpensive, easy to handle because they're very light and the different sizes will fit on top of most saucepans or of course they'll sit in a wok with water in the bottom. With no saturated fat, all the health benefits of garlic, ginger and greens this is exceptionally healthy, though that's almost unimportant because it tastes so fantastic.

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 didn't warn you!
