Seaweed and seafood are common ingredients in Asian soups.

Give this soup a try, as it is a particularly tasty and hearty soup.

Ingredients:

  1. Japanese Nori seaweed: 2 pieces
  2. Seafood:  160g (shrimp meat, scallop and fish fillet)
  3. Fresh straw mushrooms: 1/4 cup
  4. Enoki mushrooms: 80 g
  5. Egg white:  1
  6. Chicken broth: 2 cups
  7. Water: 2 cups

Seasonings:

  1. Salt: 1 tsp
  2. Sesame oil and pepper: a little to taste
  3. Cornstarch: 2 tsp
  4. Water: 4 tbsp

Method:

  1. Rinse and wipe dry the seafood. Cut into cubes , mix with sesame oil, salt, and pepper.
  2. Tear seaweed into smaller pieces, trim off roots of Enoki mushrooms, and cut into 1 cm pieces.  Also trim straw mushrooms. Best to use boiling water to rinse mushrooms and cut into big pieces.
  3. Boil the water and add all seafood for blanching less than one minute, remove, and drain well.
  4. Boil the chicken broth and water, add all ingredients and seasonings. When it comes to a boil, add water to cornstarch, mix until it thickens, and gradually pour into the soup.  This will thicken the soup . Last, stir in egg white.
  5. Ready to serve.
