Hot And Sour Fish Maw Soup

An appetising sourish, sweet and spicy thick soup with 2 main ingredients - garoupa fish fillet and fish maw.   Any white fish fillet and any quality type of fish maw is suitable for this soup, not necessary the expensive ones.
I served this soup together with a simple, easy fried rice vermicelli Stir Fry Rice Vermicelli [Economy Style Fried Beehoon] for weekend dinner.
Recipe Source - Yum Yum Magazine No. 48 with modifications
Ingredients
[serve 3-4]
20 gm fish maw - soaked and cut in pieces
200 gm fish fillet - sliced
1 tbsp shredded ginger
1 tbsp shredded red chilli - spicy type
2 tbsp shredded black fungus

750 ml water
1 egg - lightly beaten
2 tbsp cornstarch mix with 4 tbsp water for thickening
Seasoning
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp sugar
60 ml black vinegar
  1. Heat up oil, saute ginger and red chilli until aromatic.  Add in black fungus.
  2. Add in water and fish maw.  Bring to boil and add in seasoning [except black vinegar].
  3. Boil until fish maw is soft.  Add in fish fillet.  Bring to boil again.
  4. Thicken soup with cornstarch water, pour in beaten egg and stir to mix well.
  5. Add in black vinegar and ladle up to serve immediately.  Garnish with coriander leaves.

I still have some fish maw, perfect to cook this soup!

Kimmy said...

Hi Lite Home Bake, rather healthy and tasty soup comparable to shark's fin soup.

Kimmy, you are really good in cooking. This is something my mom will like it but I don't know how to "appreciate" fish maw...heeheehee

Hi Kimmy, this soup looks really good and appetizing! I have bookmarked it to try it!

Kimmy said...

Hi Sonia, a dish quite different from the usual Hoo Pioh Th'ng that is slurppy and has a bite.

Kimmy said...

Hi Jozelyn, paiseh, paiseh. Actually, I don't like 'monotonous' kind of food and cooking. That's why you may see some 'crazy' cooking especially easy and simple dishes. Give me your fish maw then, hehehe!

Kimmy said...

Hi Veronica, eat this steaming hot, you will love the taste, aroma and flavour.

Kimmy said...

Hi Ivy, regards to you too. Each of us have 2 bowls. My hubby loves it steaming hot.

This is such a delicious soup dish, Kimmy! Like all the ingredients, and using garoupa sounds so yummy!

Hi Joyce, using Garoupa, this becomes a ''classy' soup dish, hehehe!
