RECIPE BACKSTORY
Chinese people love their food, they talk food, they live food. Once a Cantonese collegue said "if a leg of the table could move, we would have had a recipe to cook it." This recipe for trout came to me through my former Taiwanese boss. I love it and use it quite often to treat friends coming over for dinner. Serve with rice and stirfried vegetables
