Chinese New Year Steamed Fish

This Chinese steamed fish recipe is easy to make, tender, and packed with ginger and scallion flavor. AND it's ready in under 30 minutes!

I recommend getting these ingredients at your local Asian grocery store, because often the seafood counter will cut and clean the fish for you!
