Here is a fish recipe from my mum's Chinese Sichuan Dipping Fish also called "Smoked" fish (Xun Yu), where her homemade dipping sauce makes the fish fillets taste special and looks like "smoked". Scroll down to watch the video.
In Chinese my mum calls this dish Xun Yu (熏鱼), if directly translated from Chinese to English, it means "Smoked fish" (guess maybe because of its color). But in fact, it is the fried fish fillets severed with special homemade dipping sauce.
In the UK, the place I currently live, one famous food is called fish and chip. It is the deep fried battered fish usually popular as fast food. Apart from that, fish cake (fish mixed with smashed potato) is also commonly seen here.
However, for me this type of fish is bit plain tasted except some taste from the batter (flour). I guess maybe because in the West it is highly recommend low sugar, salt and fat in food? I haven’t seen any fish fillet served with dipping sauce. So here you are, my friend, maybe this Chinese Smoky Fish recipe will be interesting to you.
Prep: 10 mins (if fish fillets are ready) Cook: 20 mins
You can see the fish is taking the sauce in and the colour of fish changed to dark brown. Once the fish gets the sauce, place it in a plate and serve when it is hot.
It is crispy outside and tasty inside, very nice. Hope you will try it:)
