Braised Mock Shark’s Fin Soup – 碗仔翅

Here’s an easy way to make Mock Shark’s Fin Soup for your loved ones this CNY season!

After mixing the chicken broth with shredded chicken and other ingredients, we season it with Shaoxing wine and light soy sauce. The crab meat and blanched shark’s fin is then added finally. Be slow and steady when thickening the soup, in order to get the right consistency.

We used WMF’s new FUSIONTEC range of product, which combines natural ceramic material with a steel core which promotes rapid and even heat conduction.

End it by beating an egg into the soup, mix, and done! Serve with shark’s fin soup condiments like white pepper, black vinegar, and bean sprouts and be ready to enjoy the feast with your loved ones!
