  2. I love fish maw and usually cook the dry one in soup. I love your beautiful dish, and it’s nicely presented. I say, it looks even better than those that I could order from a Chinese restaurant. 🙂 Now, I’m craving for some.

  3. I see this product everywhere in Hong Kong. Thanks for the ideas on how to prepare this dish. I like how you presented it over the straw mushrooms and a side of veggie bundles.

  4. Repeat the soaking and squeezing process until you are comfortable with the level of its greasiness. Lastly, cut them into slices of desired size and they are good to go. If the fish maw smells fishy, you may want to deep fry it again so that it becomes fluffy and free from odor again.
