* best for someone who is recuperating at home after a surgery.

This recipe is only for 1 serving(1 person)

Ingredients:
1 Live Eel(get the fish monger to kill, cut the eel for you)
4 slices of young ginger
1 tsp salt
100 ml DOM Wine or Chinese Rice Wine
500 ml water

Method:
1. Get the fish monger to chop the eel into 1.5 inch length/sections.
2. Put eel and all seasonings in an earthern pot and double boil this for at least 1 hour.


Notes:
This is not a Crockpot recipe. Please do not use a Crockpot to do this. Crockpot soups always dries up very fast. Double boiling soups will not evaporate the water content in the earthern pot but the soup absorbs the rich flavour of its uncooked ingredients.

Best to consume this hot not cold. And on the same day. Do not keep it overnight in the fridge. Re-steaming the soup will spoil the natural goodness of it.

Earthern pot are sold in Chinatown. Cheap..like under $5 for a small one and upto $10 for a super large one.

Live seafood prices fluctuates..for Eels and Catfish, no idea..coz I dare not eat it. My mom just use Pomfret for me. Its the thought of it being long and slimy that scares me.

evenling

if you cook this in a normal pot, it will over cook the fish. if you have a thermal pot cooker, use that so you don't have to watch the cooking. Wink

Gina,
Thanks, sorry for the blunder.

Gina,
Would it be ideal to have DOM after operation as i noticed you included DOM in your recipe?
Just double check as my fren wound was infected.
Hope this recipe helps her much with the recovery.
