Seafood in Xiamen
Xiamen cuisine is noted for seafood such as garoupa, yellow croakers, red crab and local squid. Such dishes were considered as traditional Xiamen cuisine since the Qing Dynasty.
The ingredients must be fresh in cooling the seafood dishes. It is better to cook them immediately when you get them from the market. At the restaurant, customers can pick out live seafood, and pass them to the chef for a freshly prepared dish.
