           Stephen Ceideburg
      2    Scallions, white part only,
           -crushed with the side of a
           -knife
           Sprinkling of freshly ground
           -black pepper
      2 ts Salt
      2 tb Plus 4 teaspoons fish sauce
           -(nuoc mam)
      1 lg Fish head or fish carcass,
           -split down the center
      1 qt Water
    1/2 c  Canned sliced sour bamboo
    1/4    Fresh pineapple, cut in a
           -lengthwise section and
           -sliced
      1 ds MSG (optional)
      2 tb Mixed chopped fresh
           -coriander (Chinese parsley)
           - and green scallions
 
  An excellent way to get twice the pleasure out of your fish purchase.
  You can use either the fish head or the fish carcass if you wish. To
  the people of South Viet Nam, this is as much their traditional dish
  as Southern Fried Chicken is to our southerners--and it will meet
  with instant praise.
  
  Sprinkle the scallions, black pepper, 1 teaspoon salt, and 4
  teaspoons fish sauce over the fish head.  Allow to stand for 10 to 15
  minutes.
  
  Bring 1 quart of water to a boil and drop in the sour bamboo and
  pineapple slices.  Cook at a lively boil for 5 minutes. Drop fish
  head into the actively boiling water and, keeping at a boil, add the
  2 tablespoons fish sauce, remaining teaspoon salt, and a dash of MSG.
  Boil the fish head for a total of 10 minutes. Transfer to a soup
  tureen, sprinkle on the coriander and scallion green, and serve.
  
  Note:  If the fish head is dropped into water that is not boiling, it
  will fall apart.
