1.  Ensure fish is dry patting by it well with a paper towel after cleaning. * Dry food will absorb the smoke better & will produce a more even colour & flavour. Marinate fish with salt & pepper for at least an hour.

2.  Line the wok with foil & add sugar, rice & tea. Mix well.

3.  Heat wok on high heat. Meanwhile, oil rack to prevent fish from sticking. When mixture starts to smoke, put rack in wok & place fish, tomatoes, shimeji, scallion & crushed garlic on it. Cover the wok.

4.  Once it starts smoking, lower the heat & smoke for about 10 mins. * Remove the vegetables half-way during smoking to prevent over-cooking & place on serving plate.

5.  Meanwhile, fix tea & add creamer. Mix well & set aside.

6.  Heat another pan & sautéed spinach with butter. Add pinch of salt & turn off fire. Pour the tea mixture & let it steep for about 10 mins. Drain & put onto serving plate.

7.  Heat up the tea mixture just before serving & add cornstarch to thicken it to make sauce.

8.  When smoked fish is ready, place it on the spinach & serve together with other tea-smoked vegetables. Drizzle tea sauce onto food & enjoy this aromatic Rose With French Vanilla Tea-Smoked Red Snapper!
