Shui Zhu Yu (Sichuan Boiled Fish) Recipe?

  • 5

Does someone have a recipe for this dish that they've tried and found to be authentic and tasty?

A Google search did yield some results but I'd prefer a recipe recommended by someone here who can attest to it's reliability.

  1. There's a recipe in Fuchsia Dunlop's "Land of Plenty" (I don't have the book in front of me, but I believe the recipe is for water-boiled beef, with a note that you can use fish in place of beef). I've tried the recipe only once and was lacking some important ingredients, but it was still quite good; I imagine that with the called-for ingredients, it would have been great.

      nonaggie your post warmed my heart as I have that book!! I'd searched EYB but of course wasn't looking for water-boiled beef. Thank-you so much for your reply, I can't wait to try it.

    2. Go Fuchsia, you won't be disappointed.
