Chili Soy Sauce Poached Tilapia w/ Crispy Ginger

Wow, this was so good I gobbled it up before I could get a picture.

Serves 3

- 1/4 cup dry sherry
- 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 3 green onions chopped
- 2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and crushed
- 2 dried hot chilies
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 pd tilapia
- 1 tbsp canola oil
- 2 inch piece ginger, peeled and cut in matchsticks

Combine sherry, sugar, garlic, green onions, crushed ginger, chilies, soy sauce, and water in a wide flat saucepan.
Bring to a boil, completely dissolve the sugar.
Add the fish and simmer for about 6 minutes covered.
In a separate pan, heat oil over medium to medium high heat.
Add ginger matchsticks and fry until crispy and slightly blackened.

I served it with sauteed bok choy. Top the fish with the crispy ginger and extra sauce. Enjoy!
