Crab meat Soup Chinese Recipes


This egg drop soup is commonly prepared for special occasions and is especially popular during Chinese New Year. For those who still consume shark fin (please don’t though), this is where shark fins are added to make shark fin soup. When my Grandma was still around, she would add a whole shot of X.O. cognac in the finished soup instead of Shaoxing, so if you have a bottle around and have no idea when you are going to finish it, give it a try.
