Drunken Snapper Soup

I have this red yeast rice  wine that’s been sitting in my fridge for almost 5 years. My aunt gave me to be used in her fish soup recipe. This recipe here is my own version which tastes as delicious as hers.. I think 🙂

This soup is very oriental, specially because of ginger and gojiberry.
