The Li River is the soul of this area. It is not only beautiful and attractive to tourists, but it is also a means of transport and a provider of water and food. Still today, you can watch fishermen standing on their small, fragile-looking boats using trained cormorants to catch fish, just as they have been doing for thousands of years.
Many of the methods of cooking the fish involve complex flavors and are often laced with chili to give a hot, spicy taste. But not always.
Li River Fish Soup is a delicate, non-spicy dish which brings out the freshness of the fish and is both refreshing and delicious.
