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

The ingredient list was a bit daunting, but we just jumped right in and WOW was this wonderful. I followed the recipe to the letter and the result was amazing!

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.
