Steamed Black Sea Bass with Ginger and Scallion

Black Sea Bass is an exclusive salt water (marine)fish.It's consider type of Grouper which found abundant off the waters of New York. They can be found in inshore waters (bays and sounds) and offshore in waters .I recalled many moons ago when I went fishing on party boat ,mostly all I caught was black sea bass.Fishing on the party boast is fun and exciting coz it's guarantee you will catch any type of fish at the bottom of the ocean but unfortunately I had seasick each time when I was on the party boat.Due to my seasick I have to fish offshore on the beach or at the pier.I remember each time when I went fishing on the beach I have to bring EPD(Environmental Protection Division ) rules and regulation which it's has limit,size and type of fish that we can bring home with us.We can't caught and bring home whatever fish we like and if we get caught by this EPD officer,we not only will get heavy summon ($500-1000)but we also need to appear at the court in front of the judge to explain why we not follow the rules applied.Mostly people here fish for fun and then release .It's called catch and release.Well,since I don't fish during winter and miss having sea bass,all I can do is to hop over to Asian market to buy the fish.I love Black Sea Bass coz the meat is so delicate fine ,soft and tender.Black Sea Bass is a good low-fat source of protein and magnesium.The best way or method to enjoy this fresh healthy Back Sea Bass is to steam ,in order to taste the delicate freshness of the fish.
