Our premium Japanese dried scallops from Soya(宗谷) of Northern Hokkaido, which is known for producing some of the freshest and best seafood in Japan. Our dried scallops come in whole or broken pieces and in different sizes. Our Japanese dried scallops are packed with fresh and umami flavours. The whole scallops are great for double-boiling and stewing with fish maw and sea cucumber, while the broken pieces are excellent for daily use such as boiling soup stocks and stir-fry.
Fish Maw, also colloquially known as “fish stomach”. Due to its high collagen and nutritious content, it is also known as “Ginseng of the Sea”. Fish Maw nourishes the skin and rejuvenates the body, hence, excellent for those who have just undergone surgery as it helps the body to heal the wound.
Suitable for most people as it nourishes the body without causing “heatiness”. Fish Maw is commonly prepared by double-boiling as a rich and flavourful soup with dried morels, baby abalones, ginseng, Hai Zhu slices, red dates and wolfberries. Chicken and lean pork can also be added to further enhance the flavours.
