Sliced Fish Szechuan Style - Gourmet Dumpling House

I have been reading CH forever, but never felt the need to post...until now. In 33 years of eating in Boston, in having my wedding at L'Espalier, in eating throughout Chinatown, I have never had a dish in Boston that was such a revelation as the Sliced Fish Szechuan style at GDH. I know Ming Tsai recommended the dish on food network, so I was hesitant to fall in love with it, but, oh my, was it ever great. There was more flavor and more spice than any other dish I can recall ever having. It was spicy to the core, but never too spicy to enjoy. I didn't even come close to finishing it (but I ate all of the fish, which was quite a victory for me), but I couldn't have been more happy when I left. The XBL (soup dumplings) were the best dumplings I have had in Boston, but they were overshowed by this wonderful dish. It goes to the top of my list in Boston (over the Chicken at Hammerley's, the Soft Shelled Crab at Locke Ober, the Butter Soup at Menton, the Lobster Roll at Neptune and the Lobster Roe Noodles at ICOB)
