Fish Maw & Pork Ball Collagen Soup

Happy Chinese New Year! 祝大家猪年快乐,万事如意。This year, I had the most relaxing Chinese New Year (CNY) ever, not needing to cook, hence skipping the mad marketing crowd. We mainly ate out or had takeaway for all our reunion meals. Since I am now well-rested, I will be making simple CNY meals from now till the last day of CNY, starting with this simple fish maw collagen soup.

Since I am still in relax (lazy) mode, this recipe is happily made with shortcuts, mainly:

  • 1 litre pure chicken collagen stock from The Soup Spoon (only sold during CNY)
  • 1 packet (200g) pork balls from Don Don Donki

The rich chicken collagen soup stock is the most time-consuming ingredient if made from scratch, so I am really grateful to have a shortcut for that.

Fish Maw & Pork Ball Collagen Soup Recipe

I always buy threadfin fish maw as it’s my family’s favourite & it is pillowy soft after cooking. Most importantly, this variety of fish maw cooks really fast, less than 10 minutes simmering on the stove top. The choice of fish maw is important in this recipe, because I don’t want to reduce the precious collagen soup stock much by simmering the fish maw for too long.

  1. I can’t even remember when I last had some fish maws! This looks absolutely mouthwatering.

  2. So lucky, no need to cook. :p I had to cook (but just all the regular stuff, nothing fancy cos we don’t celebrate CNY over here as it is not a holiday). Like Angie, I also can’t remember when was the last time I had fish maws.

  3. Where can I get chicken collagen stock?
    Which brand of fish maw did you use?

    • Chicken collagen stock is from The Soup Spoon, but only sold during CNY. You can replace with any soup stock. Threadfin fish maw at Fuhua, $10.80 (I use the whole packet in this recipe).
