  • 2 tbsp Canola Vegetable Oil
  • 5 1/3 Tbsp Ginger
  • 1 14.5 oz can Chicken Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 1 medium (approx 2-3/4" long, 2-1/2" dia) Red Sweet Pepper
  • 48 oz Sea Bass (Mixed Species)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 large Scallions or Spring Onions
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro (Coriander)


Use 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Thai Red Curry Paste found in the Asian section of your local grocery store to add a kick of flavor to this dish.
  1. In a 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat.  Slice bell peppers and set aside.
  2. Mince the fresh ginger and add to skillet, cook, stirring constantly, until ginger is lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer ginger to a small bowl; discard oil.
  3. Pour chicken broth into a pot fit with a steamer basket (be sure a lid can fit over the basket to the pot).  Arrange bell pepper slices on steamer. Top with sea bass, and sprinkle with salt.
  4. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook until fish is opaque throughout, 10 to 12 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer peppers and fish to a plate, sprinkle with diced scallion, and cover loosely with foil.
  5. To broth in skillet, whisk in tomato paste and 1/2-1 teaspoon curry paste (depending on level of spice desired). Reduce heat to low, and simmer 2 minutes. Add remaining curry paste, to taste. With a spatula, transfer fish and bell pepper strips to shallow serving bowls.
  6. Pour 2 tablespoons broth around each fillet, and sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon cilantro and 1 teaspoon frizzled ginger.
