I love Chinese-style steamed fish—fresh-from-the-tank live fish steamed with soy sauce and topped with shredded ginger, scallions, and cilantro leaves. To me, nothing tastes as satisfying as steamed fish with white rice, drizzled with the soy sauce from the steamed fish. Sometimes, I can just eat bowls and bowls of white rice with the soy sauce. Chinese steamed fish is just so delicious! I am going to be biased on this: I personally think that fish is best eaten steamed.

Chinese Steamed Fish with Ginger Shallot Sauce
Plus, this is a really authentic Chinese dish made with simple ingredients that can probably already be found in your own pantry or refrigerator. Just make sure that you buy your tilapia from a good fishmonger or better yet, what I do here in Beijing is I buy imported flash-frozen filets. It may seem counter-intuitive that frozen fish could be fresh, but it actually is. For those of you lucky people living near convenient fishing, this is a great recipe for a delicate fresh-caught fish like fluke or flounder.
