Chinese takeouts are getting more sophisticated and are now also known as haig-chicken, which translates to “fish dish”.
The word haig literally means “fish” and in Chinese, it’s the term for any kind of seafood or fish that is cooked in a way that allows it to absorb the flavor of the food, which is then used to flavour a soup.
But haig chicken is one of the most unusual.
It’s often made with chicken, but sometimes it is made with fish, as in this recipe from China.
Here’s how to make it at home.
