Chinese-Style Whole Fish

Serves 4

Method

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly oil a 9x11-inch baking dish and set aside.

Rinse fish and pat it dry, then rub it inside and out with salt.

Transfer to the prepared baking dish and sprinkle cavity and exterior with green onions, cilantro and ginger.

Mix tamari with honey, five-spice powder, pepper and peanut oil. Drizzle over fish.

Make a water bath by placing the baking dish inside a larger baking pan and filling the bottom of the larger pan with hot water to come a half-inch up the sides of the pan.

Cover both pans with heavy foil, making a tent out of the foil and sealing tightly around the edges of the larger pan.

Bake fish for 35 to 45 minutes or until flesh is opaque and flakes with a fork. Serve immediately.
