Serves: 4


  • 2 flounder fillet
  • 1 small bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 scallions, julienned
  • 2 inch ginger, julienned
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • Sauce (mix together the following)
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon oyster sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar


  1. Place flounder fillet in a steamer proof plate and steam for 5 to 8 minutes until cooked.
  2. Carefully drain the liquid off the steaming plate and transfer the cooked fish to a nice serving plate. Topped the fish with chopped cilantro and 1/4 to 1/3 of the scallions.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan and sauté the rest of the scallion and ginger until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour the sauce mixture to the pan and bring to a rolling boil. Once the scallions look wilted, turn off heat and spoon the sauce over the steamed fish. Serve immediately.
