  • 3/4 lb Thick filet of cod
  • 4 lg Leaves of Napa (celery)
  • Cabbage
  • 1/2 tb Fresh ginger root, minced
  • 1 ts Sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 c Water

  • 1/4 c Pickle juice
  • 1/2 tb Thin soy sauce
  • 1 tb White vinegar
  • Cornstarch paste

Sauce: In saucepan, heat water & crushed rock sugar
until sugar melts. Add pickle juice, soy sauce,

1/2" thick, keeping slices in position. Cut leafy
fringes off of cabbage (save for your stock pot). Cut
cabbage stalks lengthwise into pieces to match fish
slices. Insert cabbage slices between each slice of
fish. Hold together and slice fish & cabbage in half.
Using broad side of cleaver, lift fish & cabbage, as

sesame oil on fish.

Steaming: About 15 minutes before serving time, bring
water in steamer to boiling. Steam fish platter in
steamer for 7-10 minutes, until fish turns milky
white. Meanwhile, reheat sauce. Remove fish from
steamer and pour off any water. Pour sauce unevenly
over fish so it is only partly covered. Garnish with
