Steamed Pompano with Tempura Sauce by Bonita Hom

Baltimore, MD, US


My parents used to make steamed fish almost every week, and its always been one of my favorite dishes (my family is from Hong Kong so we eat a lot of seafood). Now that me and my brother aren't home anymore, they try to make it every time we come back, usually with my favorite fish (pompano). Its one of the few meals we eat as a family, and, to let us know when food is ready, my parents will call me and my brother down from our room (hence the Chinese characters). This dish tastes the best with white jasmine rice!
