The Fish Flavor Eggplant is Chinese classic I wanted to log long ago. Despite the name, no fish is included. The combination of the flavors, spices and sauces is called fish scent and comes from Szechuan. In this version the aubergines taste incredibly good: Aromatic, spicy, slightly sharp. Usually, the eggplant is fried and poultry is used, but as I basically only Fried if the result has something to do with crispy dough and I have thought that vegetable broth achieve an equally good result, I have decided this dish with less Fat and vegan, without sacrificing taste. With jasmine rice the aubergines give a nice main meal, but also as a side dish is the food super!
“Fish Scent” is not really cooked with fish. A whole lot of Chinese food have the names “鱼香 (yúxiāng) fish scent“. This is a cooking style from Sichuan (Sichuan). You can use this style for meat, eggplant, tofu, noodles, rice etc. It is always sharp, but also well combined with sweet, sour taste.
Try this famous food. If you like, you can also add a little more sugar or less chilli. Then you have your own “fish scent style“!
