Do you know Bai Xiang?
Bai Xiang( 白鲞 )is a kind of preserved fish. I consulted a dictionary for Bai Xiang. It can be translated as dried salted yellow croakers. Local people call yellow croakers “Huang Yu” which is a type of marine fish and is expensive, nutritious and delicious. Usually fishermen gut fresh yellow croakers and add salt to them to preserve. Then dry them off in the sun. Stir-fried Bai Xiang is one of my favorite dishes. It always gives you a huge appetite. It is fantas ...

Cook crucian carp soup for the first time!
Fish is my favorite food. I also like drinking a little soup during dinner. So fish soup will be the best choice to combine them together. Crucian carp is a common type of fish on our dining table. My family usually braise curcian carp in soy sauce. They don’t seem to cook crucian carp soup. I remember I had crucian carp soup long time ago in a restaurant and its freshness impressed me most. Crucian carp soup is rich in protein and help to build up one’s health. I decided to learn how ...

I used to be a meat lover. I almost ate meat with every meal. Later on, in order to have a health diet, I gradually changed my eating habits. I prefer vegetables and fruit now. Although I normally eat more vegetables now, I still eat all kinds of meat as well. And I eat less meat than I used to. There is no doubt that meat is very important for our health, such as beef. Beef has a high iron content and is helpful to enrich the blood, which is particularly very good for women. I learned t ...
