Step 1

To make sure the plated dish is completely clear of any scales, run a cleaver over the skin and scrape off any last scales.Pro Tip: Do this under a tap of running cold water to wash the scales away.Optional: Score the fish with two lines across its body on both sides.

Step 2

Use scissors to cut off the fins and to trim the tail.

Optional: Remove the gills.

Set up your steamer and bring it to a boil, then coat the fish’s top and insides with ginger. This will reduce any fishy smells.

Step 5
