Spicy Fish Head (Chopped Pepper)

I have been to Hunan province in previous days having an excited food journey. At the last day backing home, my husband’s mother stuffed our suitcase with lots of the local condiments including doubanjiang(broad bean paste Hunan version), chopped chili peppers and lots of dried small fishes. It has been a tough journey backing home since the suitcase becomes so heavy. But this is a start for another food adventure. Chinese people love to eat fish head due to the richer nutrition compared with normal meat. And do not be scared by the process because it is quite simple. The method used here is steam.
