Steamed Fish with Ginger-Wine Sauce

Yield 8 servings
Fish is traditionally the last entrée served before dessert. The Chinese word for fish, 'yu', sounds the same as the word that means 'plenty' or 'more than enough.' Leaving some of the fish at the end of the meal is a wish for the family's prosperity in the new year.

  • 3/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons sake (rice wine)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped peeled fresh lemon grass
  • 1/2 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped hot red chile pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 4 (6-ounce) trout fillets
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, cut into 1/8-inch strips
  • 6 cilantro sprigs
