    kda949's Note:

    I love steamed fish in black bean sauce! It is my favorite item to order at our local authentic Chinese Food restaurant. They add tofu, but I have read so much about how unhealthy tofu is lately, that I avoid all soy when possible. This recipe came from the 3 Hungry Tummies blog and I'm posting here so that I don't loose it because it was yummmmmy! I made a few changes to the original recipe, and I am posting it changed here. Furmented Black Beans are NOT canned black beans!! You can find them on Amazon or if you are lucky enough to live close to an Asian grocery store like I am in So Cal, you can find them there.
