Vietnam’s sour fish soup recognized among top 10 by TasteAtlas

Sour fish soup is a common name for a number of Vietnam’s specific fish soups that feature a harmonious combination of sweet, sour, and peppery flavors.

The soup broth is often cooked with tamarind, pineapple, tomato, okra, green bean sprouts and other vegetables. The fish used include catfish, carp, snakehead fish, salmon and others. The cooked soup is often topped with fresh onion, cilantro and other herbs. It is typically eaten with rice, TasteAtlas said.

In the northern region, sour fish soup is cooked with dracontomelon (sau) or fruit of a plant named ‘Garcinia cowa’, or qua doc in Vietnamese.

The list also included salmon soup in Finland, shark fin soup in China and fish soup called Zupa rybna in Poland.
