    Nado2003's Note:

    A typical Vietnamese rice dinner has a salty meat (thit kho) or fish dish (ca kho), plus a vegetables (blanched vegetables or stir fry) and clear broth soup. This dish is typical of the salty fish dish.

    1. 1
      Heat heavy sauce pan (large enough to accomodate fish without overlapping) on medium high.
    2. 2
      Add sugar, melt and caramelize (you want it brown, but not burnt). Sugar should be brown and very hot.
    3. 3
      Add minced ginger (be careful, it may sizzle if there's water in the ginger) and stir for about 15 seconds.
    4. 4
      Add fish sauce and fresh cracked pepper. Stir.
    5. 5
      Add fish steaks, do not overlap fish to make sure each piece is soaked in the sauce.
    6. 6
      Cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Do not cover. The sauce needs to thicken into a light syrup. If the sauce gets too thick, add a teaspoon of water at a time to thin.
    7. 7
      Turn fish over and cook for another 4 minutes or until fish is cooked depending on the thickness of your fish steaks.
    8. 8
      Serve immediate with steamed white rice. The sauce is good on the rice.

      An amazing recipe. My boyfriend could not stop raving as to how great it tasted. I passed the recipe on to a friend, who is not the best cook, and she came back with rave reviews.
