DIRECTIONS

  • Heat heavy sauce pan (large enough to accomodate fish without overlapping) on medium high.
  • Add sugar, melt and caramelize (you want it brown, but not burnt). Sugar should be brown and very hot.
  • Add minced ginger (be careful, it may sizzle if there's water in the ginger) and stir for about 15 seconds.
  • Add fish sauce and fresh cracked pepper. Stir.
  • Add fish steaks, do not overlap fish to make sure each piece is soaked in the sauce.
  • 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.
  • Turn fish over and cook for another 4 minutes or until fish is cooked depending on the thickness of your fish steaks.
  • Serve immediate with steamed white rice. The sauce is good on the rice.
