Jing Lou Yu (Cantonese-Style Steamed Sea Bass)

This recipe for whole bass, adapted from one in Grace Young's The Wisdom of the Chinese Kitchen (Simon & Schuster, 1999), calls for a wok, but a 12″ skillet can also be used. A drizzle of hot oil brings out extra flavor and crisps the skin. See the recipe for Jing Lou Yu »Ingalls Photography
