Pickled Fish Hot Pot Recipe
To make a perfect hot pot base for blanching fish fillet, we settle on pickled cabbage flavor soup base. The spicy and sour taste keep fillets fresh, tender and with a little bit chewy. Like other hot pot, we stir-fried all seasoning ingredients to remove excess moisture, then added fish soup to dilute the strong aroma. By cutting fish fillet into thin slices, fish fillet could be served in 20 seconds after blanching. No extra dipping sauce needs for this strong spicy and flavored fish fillets.
