I am sorry that I have not updated my blog post for nearly two weeks. I was very busy. It is because my rental contract is nearly finished and I have to prepare for removal.
Yesterday I went to a Korean supermarket and found there were a few packs of sea eel. They were very fresh. I bought one pack immediately and steamed with black bean sauce. It is so tasty. I never found any fresh sea eel to be sold here. This recipe is simple and easy. If you like eating sea eel, you must try it.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 6 minutes
- 415g sea eel (cleaned and sliced into 6 pieces)
- 10g black bean (cleaned and finely minced)
- 2 tsp light soy sauce
- ½ tsp brown sugar
- 4 garlic gloves (finely minced)
- 1 shallot (finely minced)
- ½ tsp white wine
- ½ tsp olive oil
- ½ tsp sesame oil
- ¼ tsp himalayan table salt
- 1 spring onion (finely chopped)
- ¼ red chilli pepper (unseeded and finely sliced)
- ⅛ tsp ground white pepper
Use kitchen paper to dry every piece of sea eel. Sprinkle salt and white pepper over the sea eel and marinate it for 5 minutes.
