Steamed Rock Cod


My dad showed up at 11pm one night last week with ten rock cod. He’s 82. Thank God I was home. Who would have opened the door at that hour?  He stopped by on his way to go dove hunting. True story.  The next day I made fish tacos with the three that he fileted and steamed four others Chinese style. Have I ever given you the secret? Steam the fish you would any other fish or bake it if you want with a little water. When hot pour on HOT peanut oil and soy sauce mixture. Garnish with thinly sliced ginger, scallion and cilantro. Watch for bones. If you do get one, swallow piece of bread  and try and wash it down. It works. If you are doing the math, I have three more fish to cook: what is your favorite way to eat it?
