As we have talked before, we prefer to choose the freshwater fishes. In Chinese cuisines, Freshwater fishes from lakes, rivers and ponds have always been preferred over ocean fishes, as the freshwater varieties are thought to have a more delicate texture. If freshwater fishes are hard to come by, fine-textured ocean fish such as perch, grouper or snapper can be substituted.
