Sour and Salted Fish
You’ve probably heard of sweet and sour fish in China. Sour and salted fish is a Tujia flavor dish. In order to preserve fish in summer, Tujia people marinate the fish with salt, pepper, wine and other seasonings and then store it in a clay pot for half a month.
The main cooking technique of this dish is frying. It has a crispy outer skin and the meat inside is beautifully cooked and tender, thanks to all that deep frying goodness! It will surely refresh you on a fatigued hot day due to its sourness.
