Our bass is infused with the spicy taste of fresh ginger. Look for an unwrinkled, smooth-skinned piece of ginger for the most optimal flavor.

Ingredients

low sodium soy sauce

¼ cup(s)

mirin

2 fl oz, about 1/4 cup (Japanese wine)

unpacked brown sugar

¼ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. In a large soup pot, stir together soy sauce, mirin, sugar, ginger and 3 scallions. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  2. Carefully place fish in pot and simmer for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to very low and cook for 5 minutes more.
