Chinese Oyster Soup

Chinese Oyster Soup Recipe

Oysters cook quickly in boiling water. Overcooking will result in the oysters becoming shrunken and chewy.


  • 500ml water
  • 150-300g fresh or thawed frozen oysters meat rinsed and drained
  • 5 thin ginger slices
  • 1 tbsp rice wine (or sake)
  • 3 tbsp chopped spring onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt to taste
  • 1/8 tsp white pepper powder to taste
  • few drops sesame oil to garnish
  • 2 slices ginger julienned (short thin strips) to garnish


  1. Make the oyster soup. Bring water in a pot to boil. Add oysters and ginger slices. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until the oysters are just cooked. Add rice wine and spring onions and turn off the stove. Season with salt and white pepper.
  2. To serve, ladle soup into serving bowl(s). Drizzle a few drops of sesame oil and garnish with julienned ginger.
