Among the Tujia and Miao people, there is a delicious local dish which is unknown to the public called the “Sour Fish”. The newly-caught fish is prepared and cleaned, and then it is coated with rice flour (the rice flour should be mixed with a pinch of salt) and preserved in a jar for 3 to 5 days until it smells sour. Take out the fish and fry it with tea oil or other vegetable oil so the fish has a golden color and tastes sour and delicious. Since the Sour Fish is preserved in a jar for a long time, it is already edible so you don’t have to cook it again.

Sour Fish is a famous and distinguished dish which is only served to guests.
