Chinese Fish

With the Olympics going on in Beijing I have been thinking about fish dishes in China.

Fish Slice, Grouper, Fish Hot Pot, ShanghaiDuring one of my visits to teach a course in Shanghai, we had some sliced fish hot pot. The grouper was thinly sliced and quickly cooked in the hot broth. A wonderful experience.

Whole cooked fish - Shanghai, China - Chinese Food - Chinese Cuisine - Fish PresentationHere is another great presentation of a whole fish. I really like a whole fish as then it includes the head of the fish. The fish cheeks are the tastiest meat of a fish. However, you have to be very careful of the bones in the rest of the fish.

I have had great food memories during the last three Olympics.
