Steamed grouper with Chinese wine in clay pot


  • To make the Hong Kong-style soya sauce, boil all ingredients including Kikkoman, chicken powder, sugar, light soya sauce, dark soya sauce, coriander roots and dried shrimp.
  • Clean the grouper, take out the scales and the intestines, use vinegar to remove the fishy odour and slime.
  • Place ginger slices and spring onions at the bottom of the pot so that when boiling, the fish will not be rubbed and burned. Then put fish in, sprinkled with salt and pepper to marinate.
  • Pour 200ml of Chinese wine into the pot and boil for 25-30 minutes until the fish is cooked. Add boiled seafood mushrooms and spring onions to garnish, then pour Hong Kong style soya sauce on the fish.
