Fish Belly and Mushroom Congee
Verona TAM, registered dietitian (UAS) and Continuing Education Sub-Committee of Hong Kong Nutrition Association said, "Grass carp belly is a low fat ingredient, which protein quality can compare to meat. The natural flavour of shiitake mushroom, spring onion and ginger, on the other hand, can remove the fishy smell on the fish. They can also enrich the flavour of the congee base and reduce the use of salt."
