Braised Shark Fin & Fish Maw Soup in Superior Stock

Shark fin is one of the most luxurious ancient chinese culture delicacy, even the shark fins itself had a bland taste. Properly cooked whole shark fin had a nice texture, a combination of slippery, crunchy and smooth. Shark fin cooked in double boiler; the shark fin and another soup ingredients placed in a porcelaine jar and thighly closed to seal the moisture, alumunium foil will help for this purpose. T presciouse parcell then either steamed or boiled for several hours. The indirect heat make sure the gelatin and another protein slowly releares and intens the nice umami flavour. Living in indonesia is kinda hillarious, Contrary to the fact that Indonesia is one of the biggest exporting country of shark fin, finding a fine quality of dried whole prepared shark fin is not that easy. In Jakarta, you can purchase it in Glodok, pecinan or china town of Jakarta. I purchased this little piece of shark fin for about 20 USD for 3 pieces of medium size whole processed shark fin.

In shark fin soup, the fins themselves are virtually tasteless, it can absorb the flavour from the surrounding. Thats why usually shark fin cooked with superior stock containing, chicken, pork, ham, dried scallop and mushrooms to intense the flavour. The taste comes from the soup. snappy, gelatinous texture”. Most westerners’ reaction to eating shark fin for the first time is that it has almost no taste. However, texture is prized as much as taste in Asian cuisine. I choose trusted and ‘green’ shark trader, they use all parts of the shark, not just finning it and discard the entire carcass to the sea. The shark skin and the liver sold to a cosmetic manufactors for it’s collagen and essential oil extraction. The flesh used  for making siew may, fish balls and another fish paste product. Good quality shark fin did’t smells peroxide or other chemical, but it’s still normally fishy. The color is usually pale yellowish, never choose the purely white color because it’s blanched with high consentration of hidrogen peroxide.

Angsio Hisit (Sirip Hiu) dan Hipio ikan Malong is the indonesian name for this recipe. Slightly different from making shark fin soup, braised shark fin is usually thicken right after double boiled for few hours. Beside, i usually use premium soy sauce, oyster sauce and mushrooms sauce too to the broth for double boiling. Before cooked  the dried processed shark fin, i used to soak it overnight in a fridge. I dis the same manner for the fish maw. I use the malong (Gnathophis mystrom) fish maw/stomach, this pricey fish maw did’t require deep frying prior to cooking.

The secret of making a delicious broccoli crust or broccoli base pizza is to use the soft part of the broccoli stem, That’s why you should peel off the hard and woody stem before chopped it. To Prevent the broccoli crust sticky to the pan, you can use baking (parchment) paper. Make sure the broccoli crust pizza base must be dried and throughly cooked before you put the toppping or it’s gonna be mushy pizza. My niese is such clever little girl,mostly it’s too damn clever for 4 years girl, she did’t like the texture of my first trial since i processed the broccoli too fine and the egg amount is overpowering the pizza base and she said “it was telur dadar or omelette”. For the best result, i sugest to process the broccoli until it’s got a rice-like cosistency, finer “grain” make you lost the broccoli texture while coarser “grain” will make the broccoli crust base is fragile and easily broken
