Braised Fish with Tofu in Oyster Sauce is simply another way to flavor your plain old bland tasting Fish. This dish comes with a strong “Oyster sauce” flavored thick sauce. U can really use any kind of fish but fishes with a tougher(rougher) meat texture are preferred, simply because of the braising process. Alternatively, you can use Fish Head.
