Cha Ca Thang Long is a famous dish popularized in Hanoi and is a favorite meal of ours. Although the name “cha ca” implies that it’s a fish paste, it’s actually small fillets of flaky white fish marinaded in turmeric and galangal, fried and served with generous topping of dill on a sizzling hot plate.

Hong got me a fajita skillet with a wooden serving tray as a gift a while back–probably as a hint that he wanted me to make this! But I don’t mind since I’ve always wanted one and I love this dish as well. The fragrant flavors of the turmeric and galangal marinaded fish and fresh dill goes so well together. This dish is a real crowd pleaser especially when you bring out the sizzling platter for all to enjoy.
