Simmering the sauce slowly gives it a mellow richness from the ginger and soy that goes well with a meaty whitefish like halibut or grouper. This sauce will work well over almost any choice though. If you have some fresh cilantro, sprinkle a few leaves over the top when serving.

Reduce the heat until the sauce is simmering. Cook for about ten minutes reducing by about 1/2.
When the sauce is done reduce the heat to low to keep warm.
