  1. Heat oil in non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Cook shallots and garlic gently until fragrant, but not brown. Stir in black bean sauce, rice wine, and soy sauce. Bring to boil and cook until reduced by half. Remove from heat, and stir in vinegar; set aside.
  2. Pat fish dry. Rub with sesame oil and sprinkle with pepper. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate.
  3. Grill fish for about 5 minutes per side, or just until cooked through. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with sauce poured over top.

One of our favorites - we like to double the sauce b/c we pour it over our broccoli. That said, I've found it a cinch to multiply all the sauce ingredients by 6 (thus using up most of the black bean sauce that I would otherwise waste). I then use 1/3 of the sauce for dinner, and divide the remaining sauce into 2 freezer bags and freeze them. Then the next two times I make this meal, all I have to do is thaw and warm the sauce in the microwave while I cook the fish.



This really was a nice dish and a refreshing and unusual departure from what Hubs and I might typically eat. A wonderful blend of ingredients that came together to make a delicious drizzling sauce - dark, rich and a little sweet. A little is nice, more would ruin the dish. I liked the cilantro to finish but Hubs could have done without. I baked the fish at 400 degrees until the fish was cooked through; for my thick halibut filets that took about 15 minutes. I served this with "Sesame Udon Noodles," recipe also from this site and they complemented each other well.
