One of the many confinement food recipes, Milkfish and Green Papaya Soup Chinese-Style boosts the production of breast milk for mothers who are breastfeeding.
Milkfish also has a less “fishy” taste but still has the same nutrients compared to other fishes. The sweetness from green papayas and red dates, combined with the light fish broth makes a pleasant and hearty soup that you will go second rounds for.
