The Best Cantonese Sashimi in Shunde

Shunde is one of the cradles of Cantonese cuisine, situated at the core of the Pearl River Delta. The chefs in the city pay special attention to retaining the ingredients' flavors and cook with attractive colors, fragrances and tastes that can be described as "light, fresh, crispy, tender, smooth and genuine". One must-try is the Carp Fish. Using four cooking approaches to handle one fish. Unlike Japanese sashimi, the raw fish of Shunde are given a stellar array of complements.

A signature dish for the region is the fresh raw fish slices, the fish served here was fished out of a pond to order, pure white flesh is then removed from the skin and bones and served on frozen plates. Chinese have been enjoying raw fish for at least 2,000 years, one advantage of using farmed fish for a raw dish is that the farmer knows with certainty what the fish are being fed, how clean the water is, and how healthy his stock is.

Shunde Fish Sashimi - fish porridge Shunde Fish Sashimi Pan-fried Fish Bones

True to Cantonese tradition, nothing goes to waste. The fish skin is quick-boiled with salt to form another dish. The fish bones are seasoned and pan-fried to a golden brown colour, the flesh that clung to the bones was tender and sweet. The final course was a porridge dish that had been made using the fish head and the other parts of the fish, rice grains and a stock made of rice water (skimmed off the pot of cooking rice) which is reputed to be nutritious.
