Steamed Wuchang Fish

Wuchang fish, a species of bream, is famous worldwide. Found teeming in Liangzi Lake near the Jiangxia and Ezhou districts in Wuhan, Wuchang fish went from being a tribute to landholding lords during the Feudal Period to the delicacy it is today. Dazhonghua Restaurant in Wuchang, established by migrants from Anhui in 1933, is famous for steaming Wuchang fish in a clear soup, the most popular of all the local fish-soup specialties. As steaming is the most typical method of cooking in Wuhan, when you see Wuchang fish on a menu, you can usually assume it is steamed. Fresh, blunt-snout bream weighing around 1 kilogram is typically used, and is accompanied by a dozen or so additional ingredients and seasonings such as ham, xianggumuchrooms and winter bamboo shoots. The cooking temperature is strictly controlled to ensure a light, fluffy filet. The cooked fish is adorned with bright shreds of red, yellow and green vegetables to enhance its aroma, and the dish is then brought to your table. Over three dozen other dishes featuring fish as the main ingredient are available in Wuhan.
