  • Summary

    You can cook a whole fish in a flash if you use a wok. In this riff on the classic Chinese-restaurant dish, red snapper and scallions are braised in a fragrant garlic- and ginger-infused oil.

    Ingredients

    • 3/4 cup Shaoxing wine, dry sake, or dry sherry
    • 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce, preferably reduced-sodium
    • 2 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons cornstarch
    • 1 whole red snapper (about 2 pounds)
    • 3 tablespoons safflower oil
    • 1 piece ginger (2 inches), peeled, thinly sliced lengthwise, and cut into matchsticks (1/4 cup)
    • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced (2 tablespoons)
    • 2 red finger peppers, thinly sliced (seeds removed for less heat, if desired)
    • 1 bunch scallions (about 7), trimmed and cut into 2 1/2-inch pieces
    • Steamed white or brown rice, for serving (optional)
