Shanghainese Fried Smoked Fish

I am very lucky to have grown up in a house where my Mother loves cooking and started teaching me family recipes at the tender age of 10 years old.  I have always been her Sous Chef and have admired her creative ability to make any dish her own.  We would host dinner parties once or twice a week for anywhere between 10 to 100 people.  We would never hire a caterer, we just cook our own Shanghainese or Cantonese dishes.

In this picture, this is a very famous and typical Shanghainese fish dish called “Shanghainese Deep Fried Smoked Fish” or “Fun Zing Yu”.  It is common for Shanghainese dishes to use sugar, especially in combination with soya sauce.

And voila…you get this beautiful dish (with some secret ingredients too, of course)!
