Savory Fish with Black Bean Garlic Sauce

Must Try

Random Image Popup

Fish with Black Bean Garlic Sauce is such a savory dish. I used black bean paste with fresh garlic. If you can find black bean garlic sauce, go ahead use that without additional garlic. In the end of the video, I also showed fermented black bean, which can work too. Bell peppers and onions add additional sweetness and crunchiness to the dish. Enjoy!
