Cooking is one of my favorite hobbies and I love to create recipes, like seafood soups, in the comfort of my own kitchen. One of my favorite is lobster soup and Chinese lobster congee soup. A congee soup is very tasty and it is basically a rice soup which can be cooked with great ease.
If you are celebrating a special occasion with your family, you can prepare this soup and serve your guests who will surely get delighted to have it as a starter. This soup also serves as the best food for breakfast or snacks. Now let’s discuss the recipe.
For 2 servings
- 1 whole lobster
- 6-8 cups of water
- ½ cup of rice
- Salt, to taste
- 1 teaspoon ginger paste
- 3 teaspoons of soy sauce
- 3 Spring onions, cut up
- A little bit of Chinese vegetables like cabbage
At first you need to clean the lobster thoroughly and start steaming it by placing it into the steamer. The entire process of cooking depends on the size of the lobster and cooking for around half an hour is sufficient. You should not overcook the lobster as the flavor of the fish will fade way. The gravy which is produced serve as a tasty lobster sauce or lobster bisque.
The next step is to wash the rice properly and then let it cook. Make sure that the water level reaches and covers the whole of your index finger. Keep it for an hour and stir the rice meanwhile so that it does not make sediment into the bottom of the rice cooker. Now add salt to give a lovely taste and sprinkle sliced spring onions and chopped ginger.
Now add soy sauce into the congee soup and put some Chinese vegetables like Chinese cabbage into the soup. Steam the vegetables and serve. Enjoy!
