Story Behind this Recipe

I added doubanjiang to our family's staple flavoring sauce "sweet and sour soy sauce" and made this dish. The seasoning mixture gave the atsuage a really satisfying flavor that really bumped up my appetite.
This flavor goes well with all kinds of vegetables, so you can make your own dish! Eggplants go well with this flavor.
