This dish is infused with the taste of fresh ginger. Tip: An unwrinkled, smooth-skinned piece of ginger with a spicy aroma is the perfect complement to this catch.

Unpacked brown sugar

¼ cup(s)

Ginger root

4 piece(s), 1 inch each, sliced

  1. In a large, nonreactive soup pot, stir together soy sauce, wine, sugar, ginger and 3 scallions. Bring to a simmer.
