Braised Crab Meat Soup

 
Although we are non-shark’s fin soup eaters, we are definitely fans of braised crab meat soup. The taste and texture of both soups are pretty similar although the price point is not.
Putting together this hearty soup is not difficult at all, as like the Hot & Sour Soup I shared some time ago.

I used frozen crab meat for this recipe and it was very acceptable by all my taste testers. However, if you are an advocate for fresh crab meat, please go ahead to use them. You could also turn this into a braised seafood soup by adding other seafood like diced prawns and scallops.

I got this packet of frozen crab meat from the frozen section in the supermarket.

Ingredients:

100 g Frozen crab meat
2 dried Chinese mushroom – soaked and soften
½ piece bamboo shoot – sliced thinly (optional)
1 small piece (approx. 10 g) ginger – minced
1 egg white – lightly beaten

Stock base:
1 knorr chicken stock cube
2 cup (500 ml) water
1 tbsp oyster sauce
½ tsp knorr chicken seasoning
1 tsp Chinese rice wine (I’m using Shao Tsing Hua Tiao)
½ tsp dark soy sauce
1/8 tsp salt

To thicken:
2 tbsp corn starch
3 tbsp water

Garnish:
Chopped coriander
White pepper
Black vinegar

serves 3 – 4

Turn down the heat to medium low and drizzle in the thickening solution slowly, stirring constantly until it reaches the desired consistency.

Lastly, pour in the egg white slowly and stir as you pour. This will create strands of egg white instead of clumping together.
