Place the peanut oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Stir-fry the ginger, garlic and scallions for 1 minute. Add the mussels and stir well to blend with ginger, garlic and scallions. Add the Shao Hsing or dry Sherry, and a scant 3/4 cup water. Cover wok and boil until the mussels open (2-3 minutes). Remove mussels and place in colander; shake over wok to let the juices run off into the wok. Set mussels aside. To the wok, add the oyster sauce, the soy sauce, the sugar and the black beans. Stir well. Cook over high heat for 30 seconds. Mix the cornstarch in a cup with a little water until a milky liquid is formed, then add to the boiling liquid in the wok (which will thicken immediately). Stir well for 10 seconds, remove from heat and add the sesame oil. Divide the mussels among individual serving plates. Pour the black bean sauce over the mussels.;
