2 lbs. fresh fish fillets (e.g., catfish, bass)
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 tbsp. vegetable oil
3 tbsp. soy sauce
2-3 green onions, chopped

Directions:
Directions:
Place fish in dish. Place minced garlic over surface of fish. Steam for 10-14 min. (depending on the thickness of the fish). Carefully drain most of the water out of the dish. Heat oil, then pour over steamed fish (you should hear a sizzling sound). Add soy sauce over fish. Garnish with green onions. Serve with rice.

To steam: Use large pot that will fit the dish. Place steam rack in pot. If you don't have a steam rack, use a tuna can with both ends removed. Place enough water in pot to reach top of steam rack. Cover and bring water to boil. Then place dish with fish on rack. Cover and steam according to directions.

Most Chinese recipes use slivered fresh ginger instead of garlic over the fish. My family prefers the garlic flavor.
