I served this to guests and everyone loved it. A very little sauce goes a long way - so it made plenty of dipping sauce. I increased the amount of the ginger by 2x.

Here, Chinese fermented black beans are stir-fried with garlic and ginger, flavor-enhanced with Chinese or Japanese rice wine, and blended into a delicate puree that makes a delicious dip to complement all sorts of grilled seafood, including plump sea scallops. Sweet mirin counterbalances the saltiness of the beans.
