Steamed Fish with Ginger and Shitakes

I love fish! I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it. This is adapted from a recipe I found in a magazine.

4 – 6 filets Tilapia (or other white fish)
Sea salt
Cayenne pepper
¼ cup fresh ginger, cut into thin strips
1 cups finely sliced shiitakes
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
4 chopped green onions
2 tablespoons sesame oil
½ cup soy sauce

Bring water to a boil under a metal or bamboo steamer. Sprinkle fish with salt and cayenne pepper; place on top of parchment paper inside steamer. Top with ginger and shiitakes; cover and steam for 15 minutes.

Remove fish and place on serving plate. Sprinkle cilantro and green onions on fish; drizzle with juices from parchment. In a small sauté pan, heat the sesame oil over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until smoking. Pour some oil over each fillet to wilt the cilantro and green onions. Drizzle again with soy sauce.
