  • Make slashes on both sides of the fish so that it can absorb the seasonings well. Season both sides of the fish with fish sauce (or salt) and pepper. Cover and keep in the fridge while preparing the other ingredients.
  • Season the mushrooms, glass vermicelli and minced pork lightly with fish sauce, sugar or chicken stock and pepper.
  • Stuff some ginger, mushroom and minced meat into the cavity of the fish. Add the rest of the minced meat and ginger on top of the fish.
  • Place the fish on a ceramic plate and steam for 10-15 minutes. Then top with the mushroom and glass vermicelli. Steam for another 3-5 minutes.
  • Serve with rice or roll in rice paper with fresh greens. Dip in Vietnamese dipping fish sauce.
