Dinner! 2011 in Cooking Posted February 24, 2011 Golly! Everything on this page is so lavish and elegant; I'm going to break things up a tad and bring in something a little more rustic, less refined. Vietnamese sour fish soup (canh chua ca). This certainly isn't the latest thing I've cooked but thought I'd share anyhow. Slightly sweet, slightly puckery (maybe more than slightly), just the way I like it. Many people use fish fillets but I think fish head (in addition to the fillets) adds a real dimension to the dish, especially if you're the kind of person fascinated by all things textural. Deeper flavour too, I'd say.
