    Peter Pan's Note:

    My Mom would prepare this dish using the whole fish. I prefer fillets. Adjust the amount of hot bean sauce to fit your guest taste.

      This sauce is excellent on fish! Lots of flavor, and I just love the spicy zing!!! I added some more soy sauce (maybe 2-3 T?) in step 4 to cut the tomato taste a bit and give it that Oriental flavor I'm used to. Just my own preference. I also substituted tilapia fillets, which worked out nicely. I'm keeping my eyes open for a sale on those snapper fillets, though!

      Brilliant. Did not use the chilli bean and roasted the whole snapper in the oven for 30 mins. We then added the sauce with fish for 5 min more mins in the oven and it turned out wonderfully.

      This sauce was very tasty. My bean sauce was oriental "black bean garlic sauce". Did add a little more sugar than called for (to taste) as the vinegar was quite strong. I think overall though, will use a different fish type next time. Snapper tends to be very fishy in flavor, which I thought would be cut by the sauce, but it wasn't. Will use recipe again with sole, tillapia or mahi-mahi next time.
