Chinese Recipe - Vegetarian Shark's Fin Soup


  • 5 green bamboo shoots


  • 10 straw mushrooms
  • 1 small piece of carrot
  • A few snow peas
  • ½ cup vegetarian shrimps


  • ½ tbsp vegetarian "sha cha jiang" (Chinese barbecue sauce)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp MSG (optional)
  • 5 cup water


  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp water


  1. Remove the shell from the bamboo shoots and boil in water for 20 minutes. Cut into sections. Make each section look like a shark fin by cutting only 2/3 of each section into thin strips. Deep fry in medium hot oil for 5 minutes.
  2. Blanch the straw mushrooms in boiling water for 3 minutes; rinse and cut into halves. Cut the carrot into slices. Rinse the snow peas.
  3. Heat the wok and add 2 tbsp oil, stir-fry 'A' lightly; add 'B' and bring to a boil, then add 'C" and stir fry thoroughly until mixed.
  4. Sprinkle some sesame oil over the dish and serve.

If you use canned bamboo shoots, you have to boil them for a while in order to take away the sour taste.
