Crab Meat Egg Drop Soup 蟹肉蛋花汤



Egg drop soup is a Chinese soup of wispy beaten eggs in boiled broth. Condiments such as peas, corns, seafood or meat are optional, but commonly added to the soup for greater flavour. 





Whenever I brought my kid to the wet market, he would "drag" me to the fish stall to buy seafood. Happened in June holiday when the boy accompanied me to the market, he spotted flower crab and told me to cook crab meat soup for him. Well, this is something that I would never include in my school holiday menu because I don't want to spare so much time in the kitchen removing flesh from the shell. But, he insisted and promised he would wait patiently for the delicious crab meat egg drop soup. And so, I have cooked this and the boy loved it so much!
