Steamed Sea Bass with Spinach

Incredibly easy and quick preparation for a delicious sea bass fillet with vitamin-packed spinach… low fat, super taste! For this you will need a classic bamboo steamer.

Ingredients (for 2)

  • 2 fillets sea bass (about 250 gr. or 9 oz.)
  • 4 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 2 tbsp mirin (or sake)
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 spring onion


  • Take a small bowl and mix together the soy sauce, sesame oil and mirin (or sake)
  • Add the ginger (peeled and grated), spring onion (finely sliced) and garlic (crushed); stir to combine
  • Line the bamboo steamer with parchment paper or foil and place the fillets inside, skin side up, on the first tier (the one closer to the heat)
  • Pour the sauce over the fish
  • Put the spinach in the second tier, cover and place over simmering water
  • Cook for about 8 minutes until fish is done and spinach is tender but still crunchy
  • Arrange on the serving platter, pour the juices on top and enjoy!

Tips from the Chef

  • Use dry white wine if mirin (or sake) is not available
  • Try also lettuce leaves instead of parchment paper for a more natural cooking…
