This dish or soup took my mother 7 days to make. The dried abalone takes 5 days to completely soak through then it takes a day to cook the abalone for the broth and then another day to actually make the dish.

I’m not a big fan of abalone anymore ever since my colleagues told me about what the shape resembles. As for the taste, it is said that the texture of the dried abalone is cooked to perfection when it resembles a thousand-year-old-egg. I like sea cucumber though. Not so much of a fan of dried shiitake mushrooms because I think they smell when soaked and when cooked. I like dried scallops. And the broth was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy Chinese New Year!!! 新年快乐, 恭喜发财! This is my first Chinese New Year since 1999!!
