At Jimmy’s Seafood and Steak, the clay pot fish is served as part of a three-course prix fixe meal at a price of $65. The first course is Chef Frederick Ngo’s spicy take on tom yum soup (described as “Asian seafood soup” on the menu), the main entrée is the clay pot fish and the dessert varies by season. Clay pot fish, or cá kho tộ, is a Vietnamese dish that features fish braised in a sweet and salty sauce. The name “clay pot” comes from the vessel that the dish is traditionally cooked in. That vessel helps caramelize the sauce, which is practically a meal in itself when served with coconut jasmine rice, as it is served at Jimmy’s.
