Suan Cai Yu [酸菜鱼] is a Sichuan spicy poached fish with pickled mustard greens. I know it doesn’t sound appetizing but it is my all-time favorite Sichuan dish. It has a very unique spicy, sour, numbing, and thick fish broth. It is Very popular all over China but not well-known outside of China. If you are not Chinese and you know about this dish, your Chinese friend will be impressed.
