With the Olympics going on in Beijing I have been thinking about fish dishes in China.
I will start with a lunch dish that I had near the Forbidden Castle in Beijing back in 2002. I really enjoyed eating this fried fish. I remember them being delicious.
I really enjoyed both the presentation and taste of this fish dish we had in Suzhou. This brings back memories of a late lunch in a beautiful setting.
Here are some wonderful fish heads we had in Shanghai. They were quite spicy.
During 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.
Here 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.
