Step 1

Steam the fish, drain and put on plate. See this Cantonese Steamed Fish recipe for more details on how to cook your fish.

Step 2

While the fish is steaming, prep the vegetables and have your pork ready for cooking. Mix 1 tablespoon water and cornstarch into a slurry mixture and set aside. Measure out shaoxing wine, bean sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, sugar, and white pepper in a small bowl and set aside.

Step 3

Heat wok to high and add 1 tablespoon of oil, garlic and onion. Stir for a minute and quickly add the rest of the vegetables and pork. Stir-fry for another minute. Add your prepared sauce and stir. Add your water and bring to a simmer.

Step 4

Thicken the mixture with the cornstarch slurry until is coats a spoon. Add more water if it's too thick or more slurry if it's too thin. Stir in a teaspoon of oil to finish the sauce and pour the sauce over the steamed fish. Garnish with cilantro and scallion and serve immediately.
