First, cut 4 sticks of green onion into strips.
Then, cut 8 slices of ginger into strips.
After that, minced 4 cloves of garlic.
The following, clean the fish, cut the belly clean out guts and gill.
Sprinkle ⅛ teaspoon salt and put some ginger strips into the belly and top of the fish.
Next, put the minced garlic and 1 tablespoon of fermented black beans (rinse the black beans) on top of the fish.
Steam it for 12-15 minuets depends on the size of the fish. (Wait until water boilings and start the timer.)
When the fish is done, lay the green onion strips of top of the fish.
Heat up 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a pan. (Remember the oil needs to be hot, use a wooden chopstick to check. If you see bubbles around the chopsticks that means the oil is hot enough.)
Pour the hot oil over the green onion and add 2 tablespoons soy sauce over the fish.
