Flash-Steamed Spiced Red Snapper

Serves 4
Time 45 min
This recipe for oven-steamed whole fish calls for red snapper, but feel free to check with your fish monger for a recommendation for other options. The fish is stuffed with ginger, garlic and star anise and rubbed with Chinese five-spice powder for an Asian flair. Serve with steamed bok choy and rice.

Method

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Cut 3 diagonal slits on each side of the fish and stuff them with garlic and ginger.

Fill cavity with any leftover garlic or ginger.

Mix together five-spice powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, then season fish all over, including inside the cavity, with mixture.

Put stock, lemongrass, and star anise into the bottom of a large baking dish.

Arrange fish on a rack set inside the dish so that it rests just above the stock.

Cook, without turning, until fish flakes with a fork and flesh is opaque in the center, about 30 minutes.

Carve fish into four portions and transfer to plates.

Drizzle with juices from the baking dish and garnish with green onions.
