Fish and Seafood

Fish with Black Bean Sauce
2 small fish such as snapper or trout
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 hot chili peppers, cut in half, seeded then chopped
2 Tablespoons fermented black beans, rinsed and slightly mashed, if desired
5 cloves fresh garlic, peeled and chopped
3 Tablespoons thin soy sauce
1 Tablespoon Chinese rice wine
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1. Scale and clean the fish, remove the gills and entrails and discard them. Then rinse and pat the fish dry with paper towels.
2. Heat wok or fry pan, add the oil and the fish and fry it on one side for two minutes, turn the fish over and do the same on the other side, then remove it to a pre-heated platter, and serve.
3. Stir in the chili peppers and the black beans, then the garlic, and stir-fry for one minute before adding the soy sauce, rice wine, salt, and sugar. Continue stirring, then return the fish to the pan, cover, and simmer for two minutes. Remove the cover, put the fish on a pre-heated platter, then bring the remaining sauce to the boil and pour it over the fish, and serve.
