1 tablespoon Salad oil
1 tablespoon Julienned peeled fresh ginger
2 tablespoons Red-in-snow (optional)

Rinse fish and pat dry. Cut fillets into 1-by 1½ inch pieces; set aside.

Place a wok or 3 to 4 quart saucepan over high heat. When hot, add oil and swirl to coat cooking surface. Add ginger and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add mushrooms, fish and red-in-snow; stir until fish turns opaque on outside, about 1 minute. Stir in broth, tofu, soy sauce, sherry and sugar; bring soup to a boil, stirring occasionally. Pour into a tureen and sprinkle with green onions and sesame oil. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
