【Potato in Hot Garlic Sauce – Yu Xiang Potato 】
by MaomaoMom

Yu Xiang is one of most well-known sauces used in Sichuan cuisine. Yu Xiang, literally “fish fragrance”, refers to the sweet, sour and spicy sauce in which meat or vegetables are cooked. This Sichuan classic doesn’t actually contain fish. Instead, its seasoning mixture replicates the traditional flavouring for Sichuan fish dishes, and is prepared using ginger and garlic with sugar, salt, vinegar, soy sauce, and chili peppers. I made this dish for dinner, it disappeared fast.
