Steamed Jade Bamboo and Fish
Chef White Lily: I’m making a steamed fish okay. This is my fish, perfect size. This is a tilapia. Very tasty and have very little bones. You know, we all like a fish but we don’t like the bones especially when you eat the whole fish.
Anyway, today, this fish is all cleaned. I’m going to steam this. Adding an herb, that’s right. This item, I’m making it for a diabetes patient. That doesn’t mean other people can't eat it okay. You’ll love it when we eat it because it taste good. So I’m using this herb. This herb is called—we called it a Jade Bamboo.
It is called a Jade because it’s like almost like a see-through like the Jade all right. And it’s a long thing root from A plant. Kind of like a lily plant. This is the dry kind and I precooked this for 15 minutes. And then I’m going do this, you just cut them. After you cook it well they are vegetable. It’s herb but it’s more of an edible herb. Some herb when you cook it, they are bitter and you can't really eat it. But this is edible. You can eat it like vegetable.
All right now, fish, add nothing to it. Cut it down a couple of slice so the taste gets to it, put different ways so it doesn’t break when you cook when it’s done all right. Now after you do that, you kind of slow this thing to it. Put some in the tummy so the herb will get into the fish even if you don’t like to chew the herb, you will still get the benefit because it goes into the fish. 10 minutes to steam this fish so I’m saving that talking when the fish start cooking okay.
Now green onions put on the top. Okay, what do we do is we put a little bit of cooking oil to it. I’m just going to use this one. That takes the raw smell out.
Female: Is that sesame oil?
Chef White Lily: No. This is a cooking wine. Cooking wine, I’m sorry. Did I say oil? It’s cooking wine okay. Cooking wine takes the raw fish, the raw meat smell out okay. Put some ginger and the green onion.
Male: ..the cherry wine or—
Chef White Lily: No this is a rice wine.
Male: Rice wine.
Chef White Lily: Yeah, rice cooking wine yeah. All right so we’re going to load it, that’s all. Very simple to prepare. Now we turn on the fire, put on high, bring it to boil. Put just a little bit of the water in there. When the water starts boiling, then the steam start coming up all around the fish then it cooks. Now, let’s put this away. I can tell you about this herb.
Jade bamboo. First of all, you say why a jade bamboo is good for diabetes. Diabetes we all know—there’s so many people have diabetes nowadays and the typical symptoms of diabetes are always thirsty, drank a lot. It’s like they can't get enough of water or beverage. And the second symptom, they eat a lot. Bread, rice, you name it. Always hungry. And the third symptom is they—lots of urine so okay. And then, all of that cause the fourth one is usually they are skinny. They can maybe—they can’t have a high blood pressure but they are—especially towards the late stage they are very skinny okay.
So why diabetes is doing all of these to the body? It’s because the heat. Heat causes so many things to the body. Heat, first trapped in the body burns those lungs. So, in a Yellow Emperors Internal Medicine talks about this five thousand years ago, of course the name is not diabetes. We call it the “fading thirst”. Okay like a disappearing thirst and it divides into three portions, the upper thirst—up for the fading thirst, the middle, and the lower okay. So when it’s up, it’s the lungs.
When the heat that continues trapped in the body, the conditions gets worse, it goes to the stomach. And then now—I have to check this temperature. Now when the stomach gets hurt, damaged, there goes the hunger always because the stomach is going crazy. It burns too much food that’s why you’re always hungry.
And then when the condition gets worse, so the heat will continue to damage another organ, that’s the kidney. We all know the kidney controls the bladder and urine, all of that. So when the kidney gets hurt or damaged it goes the third symptom. That’s the diabetes.
And this, the jade bamboo goes into the lungs and the stomach. So what it does it makes the body have more—make your mouth have more of saliva so you don’t—a diabetes patient don’t have that desire to drink because you’re not thirsty as the thirsty. And then also when it goes to the stomach, it nurtures the stomach. So stomach kind of calm down a little bit and not always want more food. That’s how this herb works for the diabetes patient okay.
Now of course the fish goes to stomach and the kidney, that to take care of the other part, the third part. That’s why this item is very good for the diabetes patient. Now, we need the—about 10 minutes of steam, it’s hot so I’m going to reduce the heat because you don’t want to boil too high for a long time for—wine is the bubbling water that makes it into the fish and gets little soggy. And also, it may get dry. You got a burning fish situation going on.
Now while that is doing that, I am going to use this herb juice to make a sauce for the fish. As you saw, there are not much of a flavoring going on all right. So I’m going to use a little bit of this to make a sauce, soy sauce, and my sesame oil. A little bit of sugar, now, ginger, put more ginger to it. Now, we put some ginger and the green onion, the longer piece in it while it is steaming okay. The flavor slowly cooks into the fish meat. And then when this is done, I will take those pieces out because you don’t want to chew on it believe me. It’s not very pleasant when it gets between your teeth, rather, you have this. When you eat raw eat a little bit of the green part okay. Remember, this you can eat it raw.
All right, be very careful to take this stuff out. You don’t want to get burn. I went to look for this little instrument that it can grab the—and take it out but I didn’t find it. All right now, it does have a little bit of water in it.
Okay, now I’m going to take this part out. You can either take it out or just push to the side okay because you don’t want to bite into the bigger pieces especially onion is not very pleasant. It doesn’t do anything bad to you but like we have said in the beginning, we want the food to taste good, now fill it. Put the sauce to the fish.
Sometimes during the cooking process, there are some part that you can speed up. There are some part, you need to be real patient okay. This you got to fill it so that every part gets the sauce. Now if you don’t like to eat the jade bamboo, this is a little chilly okay. That’s it!
Here you have, recommended for a diabetes patient, Jade bamboo with steamed fish. Enjoy, thank you!
