Excellent and easy for a very novice cook. I added some Sesame Oil to the black bean sauce for extra oriental zest. Read More

The marinate/sauce was really really good but I didn't much care for the texture of the steamed fish and the tofu was just blah. Will try it again with baked fish and will omit the tofu altogether. Thanks anyway. Read More
