First pour some water(two inches or so) into the steam pot, and make the water boil with high heat. During the same time prepare some ingredients: slice some ginger, cut three green onions and chop one tomato.

Second rinse the fish with scale and gut removed and cut about one inch deep incisions on both sides of the fish. And put two chopsticks under the fish on the plate, or put the fish above two whole green onions if you can't find chopsticks, in order to make the both sides of the fish get even heat during cooking. And then put the sliced ginger inside and on the top of the fish. When the water in the pot becomes to boil, the fish is ready to put in. Be careful of the hot steam!
