  • Shredded ginger root
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 whole green onion
Place platter on a trivet in a steamer, making sure water is boiling. Cover and steam for 15 minutes. Test with fork. Fish should be removed before it has a chance to become overdone.

When fish is steaming, heat:
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
When fish is done, drain and place on platter. Discard whole green onion, then pour over the fish:
  • Hot vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
Garnish silver perch with the shredded green onion and serve steaming hot with fried or steamed rice.
