You can either get your fishmonger to remove the scales and gut the fish or you can do it yourself - it is very easy.
Just use the back of a knife and scrape up and down the fish.
All the scales come off this way.
Then slice through the belly and remove everything under cold water to gut the fish.
Place the fish in a large steamer (bamboo is best).
Top the fish with the spring onions, soy sauce, ginger and sesame oil and steam on a medium heat for 18-22 minutes.
In a small pan, heat the vegetable oil.
Pour the hot oil over the fish to make a crackle on the skin.
