Steamed Sea Bass with Oyster Sauce, Hampstead Seafoods (18 Sep)

Steamed sea bass with oyster sauce, salad, miso soup and rice.

This fish menu never missed appreciations from guests and Mr. Husband.
Very yummy and easy to make!!


  • 2 pieces of Sea bass (sliced to cook)
  • 2 tablespoons of Chinese Rice Sake
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon of oyster sauce
  • 2 teaspoons of soy sauce
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 teaspoons of thin sliced ginger
  • coriander to top


1. Prepare semi-deep dishes to fit the sea bass and sauce. Cut one spring onion into 5-6cm length and then do in lengthwise. Place pieces of spring onion on the bottom of each dish
2. Make a cross-cut line in the middle of the sea bass to heat evenly. Mix all sauce ingredients in a bowl. Place a sea bass on each dish over the spring onion, pour the sauce over it and top it with ginger
3. Place dishes in the steamer. Close the lid and steam them for 12-15 mins
4. Once it is done, take the dish out from the steamer by using a cloth (be careful, it's very hot). Top with thin string spring onion and coriander to serve.

Time to prepare: 20 mins
Total cost: 4 (3 pounds for sea bass and 1 for the rest of veggies)

Let me introduce our cool fish shop, Hampstead Seafoods as well as some other nice local shops. 

In the mid of Hampstead High Street (78), there is a cute market 
Hampstead Community Market
Veggies, meat and fish, all are fresh and very importantly, seasonal!!

In the very entrance, there is a vegetable store. 

Got in a narrow short path of the market,
a butcher appears first.

There is a cheese shop next to the butcher that I'll introduce next time.
Eventually in the end of the path,
Hampstead Seafoods appears.

 On Saturday the small community market right next to the path opens to sell old books, antiques, local cheese etc. Sunday is closed.
