1 tablespoon whiskey (optional, but, if omitted, add 1 tablespoon fish stock)
Clean the fish and score the sides with several cuts to allow the marinade
This is steamed, and as such is best done in a bamboo steamer, because in
a metal steamer condensation on the lid drips onto the food, and marks it, spoiling
the appearance, and also possibly affecting the cooking process (fish is best
steamed in "dry" steam). If you use a metal steamer you should cover
the fish with a paper towel which is not in contact with the fish. Alternatively
you can cook this dish in a microwave, using low to medium power.
Mix the Marinade ingredients and rub them into the fish, leaving it to marinade
for about an hour in a cool place.
Transfer the fish, and the marinade, on a dish large enough to hold it,
to a bamboo steamer (see note above), and steam for about 20 to 25 minutes (if
microwaving, cook until the flesh adjacent to the bones is cooked, allowing
it to rest for 1 minute after each 3 minutes cooking before testing).
