Recipe: Braised Seafood Treasure Soup

Braised Seafood Treasure Soup is possibly my favourite Chinese-style soup to have at wedding banquets or CNY dinners.  Thick, rich and chock full of seafood ingredients, what's not to love. So, this year, I decided to try making this at home for my family since I had all the ingredients at hand.

For this soup, you can use a mix of dried seafood ingredients such as sea cucumber, fish maw, abalone skirt and dried scallop as well as crabmeat (I used frozen flower crab meat). This is a really easy soup to put together and it was delicious too! Just like the ones you get from the hotels or Chinese restaurants. 


This Braised Seafood Treasure soup tastes best with a touch of black vinegar.
