Tamarind Ginger Fish

1 heaping tablespoon tamarind
1/2 cup hot water
2-4 tablespoons oil
Some chopped onions, shallots, or green onions
2 T julienned ginger
4 cloves garlic, sliced
About a pound of fish fillets
1/4 c brown sugar
3 tablespoons fish sauce

Start the tamarind soaking in the water 20 minutes before you start the rest of the recipe, or stick it in the microwave and get it really hot while you're cooking. Push the pulp through a sieve and save the liquid.

Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok, then add the onions and stir-fry a few minutes to soften, then add the ginger and garlic and stir-fry till it's lovely and fragrant.  Add the fish fillets and quickly cook on each side, then add the brown sugar, fish sauce, and tamarind liquid.  Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 5 minutes, or till the fish is just done.
