This is one of our favourite dishes growing up. Called "Cá Chiên" or Fried Fish.
We enjoy this dish with a side of steamed jasmine rice.
This recipe is our version, the crispy skin of the ling cod and roasted vegetables really absorb our Jade lemongrass dipping sauce. Our Jade lemongrass dipping sauce has an aromatic, citrusy, sweet and sour flavour to balance the richness of the Fish.
