Steamed Fish with Ponzu


Steamed Fish with Ponzu Recipe

Serves 2 | Prep Time: 30 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes


8 oz sea bass
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
3 dashes white pepper
3 dried shiitake mushrooms
1-inch piece ginger, peeled and cut into thin strips
1 scallion, cut into thin strips
2 tablespoons Mizkan AJIPON® Ponzu


Clean and rinse the sea bass with cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Season with the sesame oil, Shaoxing wine, and white pepper. Soak the dried shiitake mushrooms with hot water for about 15 minutes. Squeeze the mushrooms dry of water, cut the stems and sliced into thin pieces.

Arrange the mushrooms on top of the fish. Steamed the fish for about 4-5 minutes or until cooked. Discard the cloudy water that seeps out from the fish. Add the ginger and scallion on top of the fish and pour the Mizkan AJIPON® Ponzu over the fish. Serve immediately with steamed rice.

    I’ve just started to learn cooking Asian food and so glad to discover your site. Love every recipe you share. Can you tell me what other fish can I use?

  2. First of all, this is not the best place to have a Chinese cooking techniques discussion. Chinese fried rice is made with overnight rice and whether or not the grain breaks all depends on the cooking skills and techniques of the cook. I, for one, will never make fried rice using freshly steamed rice or Japanese rice. I adore Chinese cooking techniques and I try to stay as authentic as I can. If you want to discuss further, please send me an email.

    woow, i think that look great. I’m gonna make it tomorrow for my anniversary. I just wondering, like your chinese steamed fish recipe too, why do you pour the flavouring sauce after the fish cooked? can I pour the sauce before so it can flavouring the fish while it cooked? thank you very much :)

    Hi Bee – great recipe, would be a wonderful variation on the usual soy sauce accompaniment!

    Is it okay to use Basa fillets for this recipe? I have a couple of Basa fillets in my freezer but I have to admit I never tried steaming them…is it a fish that could/should be steamed?
