20 minutes later. DON'T try to pick up the plate now-- it is coverd in boozy, saucy water. Instead pick up the steamer basket and use it to drain the sauce off the plate into the sink. (Just hold the tray and gently tilt it until the juice runs off.) Then your fish plates will look like this.
And the sources of inspiration? Jeff Smith for the steaming method. Kimiko Barber for the mushrooms on the fish idea (although she cooks it in foil, which is reprehensible) and Washoku for the advice on rice. Peaceable kingdom. Happy eating!
