Ginger Tamari Steamed Snapper



As a nation we’re not consuming nearly enough fish. If you need a little inspiration as to why here you go… fish is super high in healthy omega-3 fats meaning it’s great for heart and brain health, reducing inflammatory pathways and improving hair and skin quality. Also a great source of clean protein.


1 whole snapper (approx. 800g), scaled and gutted
2 tbsp fresh ginger, thinly sliced
2 spring onions, thinly sliced (plus more for garnish)
1 small chilli, thinly sliced for garnish (optional) 


¼ cup fresh ginger, peeled and grated finely
¼ cup chopped garlic
¼ cup sesame seeds
¼ cup tamari
2 tbsp raw organic apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp toasted sesame oil 


  1. Wash fish thoroughly under cold water. Pat dry with paper towel inside and out. Place on heatproof plate and score fish by using a sharp knife making 3-4 diagonal cuts across the thick part of flesh.
  2. Combine ginger and spring onions in a small bowl then sprinkle on top of fish. Place plate in large bamboo steamer over a large pot or wok of boiling water. Steam for 7-10 minutes or until fish is soft and white.
  3. Heat sesame oil in a small saucepan, once hot add all other ingredients and combine well.
  4. Remove fish and plate from steamer and drizzle hot sauce over the top. Sprinkle with extra spring onions and chilli and serve with steamed Asian greens and rice if desired.
