Teochew Stir-Fried Fish Maw with Prawns ( 潮州鱼鳔炒鲜虾 )

cny food stir fried fish maw with shrimps
Fish Maw ( 鱼鳔 ) is a popular ingredient in the Chinese cooking especially in Teochew cuisines, and it is considered a delicacy. A highly sought-after ingredient during the Chinese New Year, fish maw is commonly used for cooking soups although foodies can also savour this gourmet dish in braised or stir-fried styles.

An excellent source of collagen, fish maw is tasteless and takes in the flavours of the accompanied ingredients. Available in Chinese Traditional Medicine stores, these fish maw usually come in dried forms and vacuum-packed for convenience. Prices differ widely depending on the type of fish and also the thickness of fish maw. Personally, I prefer the thicker type which gives you a nicer texture.
