Ca Chien Don - Crispy skinned snapper with ginger

Two years ago, Allison and I traveled to Vietnam for my cousin's wedding. Since we were considered guests of honor, we got to participate in the ceremony earlier in the day.

The reception was a traditional Vietnamese wedding feast, held in a fancy hotel in Saigon. This Ca Chien Don (crispy skinned snapper with ginger) was one of the many courses served at the wedding.
