Weekend Menu #82 : scallop & seaweed soup

We suddenly have load of dried scallops and seaweed  when hubby bought some back from his Sabah trip last month.

I simply love this simple yet nourishing and warm soup that I cooked for the family last weekend. Hubby loves scallops and seaweed.


This wasn't the ordinary seaweed that you normally use in soup. I was also surprised to see such seaweed. Look like corals on the ocean bed. Anyway, I soaked and washed it before cooking to soften it.


Ingredients:
Seaweed, soaked, rinsed and cut into smaller strips
Dried scallops, washed
Wolfberries
1 egg
Salt and sesame oil


Methods:
1. Add in dried scallops and seaweed into a pot of water. Once boiled, lower the fire and let it simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes.
2. Add in salt and sesame oil to taste.
3. Add in wolfberries and let it simmer for a minute before add in 1 egg.
4. Use fork to stir to form egg flower. Off the fire. Serve warm.

Super delicious and healthy soup for the family. Do you add in the seaweed together with the scallops or later?

If I am not wrong, that is cooling. So how did you lose your voice? Hope you're ok now.

Aah...that looks like comfort soup to me. I have never seen this sort of edible seaweed before. Something exciting for me to look out for on my next trip to Sabah. ^.^
