Sea Cucumber (Asian)

Sea cucumber, or namako (japanese) is rich in iron and good source of calcium. They are usually sold in the markets dried and are hard as rocks. Prepared by soaking in water for at least 24 hours, during which it doubles in size. It becomes gelatinous, slippery with a rubbery texture. Flavours to cook with: garlic, chill or fermented bean sauces. Dishes to incorporate with: Winter melon, dried scallop, kai-lan or Shiitake mushroom. My grandmother has a traditional soup recipe that includes the sea cucumber from her hometown in Chaozhou. She made a very delicious broth with pork bone, Chinese cabbage, Fish paste or Fiskbullar (Scandinavian) and Fish Maw.
