Servings: two as a main dish or four as an appetizer.
I prefer smoky, salty country ham for this dish, but prosciutto or even baked ham will also work. If you don’t have peanut oil on hand, substitute any vegetable oil. Serve the fish with steamed rice to soak up every delicious drop of the sauce.

I used cod for a light and flavorful weeknight dinner. It was delicious. Definitely serve with jasmine rice for a nice Asian-style meal.
This is a family favorite. We usually use salmon and shitakes and if you can find the pre-chopped proscuitto packages it speeds it along. Anytime I have made this for somebody else they have requested the recipe. I always serve it with rice and cucumber/carrot salad with a fish sauce/white vinegar dressing.
For being a steamed fish recipe, this prep has a great deal of flavor. I like the saltiness that the ham imparts. We did this recipe with cod.
