seafood Seafood

It is said that the Chinese will eat anything that moves, and it seems that anything that is pulled out of the sea is eaten. Turtle, shrimps, cuttlefish, squid, shark, abalone and all manner of shellfish can be found on coastal menus. The Chinese have invented many tasty ways to prepare the fruits of the sea.

Beware of seafood in cheap restaurants far from the sea as it may give you serious food poisoning.

See Chinese Common Dishes for other meat dishes and vegetarian dishes.
