The big hairtail here in Jiangxi costs 30 yuan a catty, which is a bit expensive. When I see a supermarket on sale, I will buy a few more because my husband and children love to eat my hairtail. The most common method in our family is braised in brown sauce, crispy and delicious, served with wine and dinner, which is very enjoyable. The braised octopus I made is not fishy at all, and it is very fragrant. I have to make it every three to five times, every time I eat it up. The seasoning and method are not complicated. It is fried until golden brown, and then burnt until it tastes good. The secret of the delicious taste is that I replaced the water with beer to make the fish more delicious and full-bodied.
Hairtail has few tender thorns and is rich in nutrition. It is very suitable for the elderly and children to eat. It has the effect of replenishing deficiency and replenishing qi. It is a suitable ingredient for all ages. Don't miss it!

1. Clean the hairtail first, put a knife on the surface, sprinkle in salt, and marinate for a while.

Tip: Hairtail is easier to taste with a few cuts. The black film on the belly of the fish and the blood on the bone must be thoroughly cleaned. As for the silver fish scales, our hairtail has always been reserved because it is not a scale, but a layer of skin formed by special fat, called "silver fat", which is a high-quality fat with high nutritional value, which is good for the body. There are great benefits, so there is no need to deal with it.
