Chinese dried black beans are under-used and an under-appreciated ingredient for everyday cooking. Don’t get me wrong, I know it has a funky smell to them, but when added to stews and sauces, their flavor is a blend of salty and earthy.
The Chinese way of cooking fish is the utmost healthy way to eat fish. The two methods of cooking is either steaming or braising the fish in a wok with soy sauce, rice wine, stock, or ginger. Unfortunately, I didn’t do either because I was too lazy to set-up the steamer.
