Lingma Catfish is a local delicacy in Lingma Town, Wuming District, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, and a resounding brand of the catering industry in Wuming District and even Guangxi.
In the Zhuangjiaren Gourmet Restaurant in Wuming District and the inheritance base of the intangible cultural heritage "Lingma Catfish Cooking Skills" in Nanning City, chef He Qiujing said that he had studied cooking skills with his master Zhu Bao for 10 years and knew that every process of this dish was very exquisite. For example, the catfish should be cut in a sideling direction with moderate thickness; when frying the catfish, pour hot oil constantly to ensure that the catfish is tender inside with a crispy crust. Since the dish focuses on the original taste, the local cooking method is the most suitable, instead of such cooking methods as stew and steam. The local cooking method can better reflect the delicate and delicious taste of the catfish, which is more favored by customers.
