      Whisk together black bean and garlic sauce, vinegar, 1 teaspoon cornstarch, and water in a bowl. Pat fish dry with paper towels. Place remaining cornstarch in shallow dish. Coat fish with cornstarch, shaking to remove excess.

      Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Add fish and cook until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter.
    3. 3
      Add ginger and scallion whites to empty skillet and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add black bean mixture and simmer until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Pour sauce over fish and sprinkle with scallion greens and cilantro. Serve.

      First mistake I made was using very mild and quite thin white fish fillets I had on hand and the sauce was a bit overpowering for them! Secondly, I baked the fish to cut down on calories. I think the fish needs the extra flavor that comes from frying to accommodate the intense flavors in the sauce. I WILL try it again and follow the recipe exactly!! Thanks for posting.
