Make cuts on the skin of the sea bream fillets, sprinkle with the salt and sake, and let stand for about 10 minutes. Reconstitute the dried wakame and squeeze the water out. Make lengthwise cuts on the shiro-negi and separate the core. Julienne the outer layers (sen-giri), and chop the inner core lengthwise into fine pieces.
Spread the (1) wakame on a plate, place the sea bream fillet on the top, and top with the chopped shiro-negi and ginger. Place the plate into a preheated steamer, and steam over high heat for about 10 minutes.
