How to Cook Fish-Flavored Shredded Pork

Fish-flavored shredded pork is a common Sichuan dish. The fish flavor is not created from any fish product but the chili sauce, salt, soy sauce, white sugar, diced chives, minced ginger and garlic. Therefore, this dish tastes complex but delicious: salty, sweet, sour, spicy and fresh.
