Place in a heatproof dish at least 1 inch deep that will fit inside a steamer.
Mince or mash black beans and garlic; add soy and sherry.
Drizzle over fish.
Cut 1 onion into thirds; place cut onion and ginger on top of fish.
Cut remaining onion into 2-inch lengths; cut lengths into thin shreds and set aside.

Cover dish completely with wax paper; then support dish on a stand or rack in steamer over 1 to 2 inches of boiling water.
Cover pan and cook until fish flakes readily when prodded with a fork in thickest part, about 10 minutes.

Heat oil in a small pan until it ripples when pan is tilted; pour over fish (oil will sizzle).
