Grass Carp Slices Hot Pot with Vermicelli and Assorted Vegetables
Gabriel Tak-Kiu PUN, accredited Practising Dietitian (Australia) and Dietitian of Hong Kong Dietitians Association, said, "Mung Bean vermicelli is low in fat, the energy content of a bowl of mung bean vermicelli is lower than a bowl of white rice or udon. Grass crap slices are low in fat yet rich in protein. Cooking in soup, a low-fat cooking method, makes this dish suitable for those who concern their body weight."
