From the Test Kitchen

Perhaps you’ve heard someone say “it’s all about the sauce” when describing a tasty dish. That’s certainly the case in this recipe where a delicate white fish like cod and thin cellophane noodles get covered in this richly flavored sauce. Sweet, salty, and scented with ginger and tingly Szechuan peppercorns, we found it to be irresistible and hope you do too.
