For the second dish, Emily made a simple Dace Fish Soup in the South Arm Community Kitchen. It is very common to have soup in a Chinese meal.
This Dace Fish Soup is made with dace fish paste which can be bought from Chinese groceries store. Napa cabbage and oyster mushrooms add sweetness to the soup. This soup can be made in 15 minutes.
You can buy Dace fish paste in most Chinese groceries like T&T, Great One Supermarket, Great Value Asian Supermarket, etc.
