Sichuan Fish in Spicy Garlic Sauce, Beijing Noodle No. 9

This dish is sure to cure whatever ails you. Tender chunks of flounder are immersed in a fiery oily sauce that is an angry shade of red. Not so spicy as to make smoke come out of your ears, but rather a flavorful, gradually building heat that produces a numbness in your mouth, yet you can’t seem to stop eating it. Be sure to enjoy it with lots of rice.
