  1. Heat oil in non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Sauté shallots and garlic to release fragrance, but not to brown. Mix in black bean sauce, rice wine, and soy sauce. Bring to simmer and cook until reduced by half. Remove from heat, and stir in vinegar; set aside.
  2. Pat fish dry with kitchen towel. Rub with sesame oil and sprinkle with pepper. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate OR heat up the grill skillet and spray with cooking spray.
