  • 2 Spanish mackerel (tanigue) steaks, each about 1 1/2-inch thick
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Sesame oil
  • 3 - 4 tablespoons minced garlic
  • Sliced scallions and torn cilantro, to garnish
  • For Sweet Soy-Ginger Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sweet rice wine (Shiaoxing, sake or mirin will all work)

  • Lay a fish steak on each plate. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  • Steam over briskly boiling water for 10 minutes.
  • Heat the cooking oil in a pan. Cook the minced garlic over medium heat until golden brown. Scoop out. Save the oil.
  • To prepare the Sweet Soy-Ginger Sauce: Mix together the soy sauce, sweet rice wine, sugar, and ginger juice.
  • When the fish is done, take a tablespoon or 2 of the liquid that has formed a pool around the fish and mix that with the sauce.
  • Place the steamed fish steaks on 2 serving plates and brush the top of them with a little of the oil in which the garlic had been cooked.
  • Divide the toasted garlic bits into two portions. Top each fish steak with a portion of the toasted garlic.
  • Garnish with sliced scallions and torn cilantro. Spoon the sauce around the fish.
