Corn and fish maw soup

Corn and fish maw soup

Mum gave me some fish maw (she always stock this ingredients at home) , initially I plan to cook a stir fry veggie and fish maw in oyster sauce but as always , upon checking my fridge found out that I didn’t stock  the right ingredients and all I have was a pack of organic sweet corn, which I intended to cook for soup today. So hey…why not add he fish maw into the soup?

The corn soup recipe is one of mum’s home cooked food , it was simple to make and not as complicated as the real Chinese fish maw soup, not that this corn soup is not real though.

Ingredients :

  • 2 medium sweet corns (shredded)
  • 1 large carrot (shredded)
  • bunch of fish maw (the one I got from my mum was already soaked and squeeze out of excess water) , sliced thinly
  • 750 ml chicken stock
  • 1 piece of chicken breast fillet (cut into diced or sliced thinly)
  • 2 eggs
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tbsp corn flour, mixed with 4 tbsp water, for thickening

Steps :

  1. Bring the chicken stock and chicken fillet to boil., add the shredded carrots and let it simmer for 3 minutes over low heat
  2. Add the corns and cook for 5-8 minutes over low heat then add the fish maw
  3. Add seasoning such as salt and pepper to taste
  4. Stir in the eggs to make eggs ribbon, let the soup simmered for 1 minutes.
  5. Thicken the soup with corn flour mixture, let soup simmered for another 2 minutes, remove from heat and serve while still hot.
