Fiery Ginger Fish

Chopstick Cinema

This Month's Film: Farewell My Concubine
Cuisine: Chinese

The sauce for this fish dish is a piquant combination of tomatoes, bell peppers, scallions, celery, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, chili flakes and lots of ginger. The fish itself I dredged lightly in flour and cornstarch and then pan-fried to a golden brown. Fiery delicious.

The recipe will be posted at the end of the month along with the 'Farewell My Concubine' film review.
