Yellow duck, also known as yellow catfish and yellow bone fish, is a special dish in Hunan Province. You can see it in every street stall. As Hunan people living in Beijing, they miss the taste of their hometown, so they learn to make it by themselves. This soup usually needs to put perilla to be pure, but I didn’t see anyone selling perilla in Beijing, so I had to save this step, but the soup still tastes good!
