Earlier we a friend of us asked us for recommendation of healthy soup recipe for his ill family member. After some research, we came to realize that this Fieldcress And Blotched Snakehead Soup is good for easing pain and swell and… We don’t actually know much about Chinese medicine.. In short seems that this soup is good for health.
We also had a private reason for selecting this soup because it used to the soup we liked to order in a dumpling restaurant during our studyhood. This was the soup for serving the dumpling and it’s exceptionally delicious. We wanted to replicate the flavour at home so we chose this soup.

We succeeded in making a milky pot of Fieldcress And Blotched Snakehead Soup and it tasted good. But the quality was still not comparable to the version in the dumpling restaurant. We would love to explore how we can further improve this soup. Let’s treat this recipe as a basic version.
Ingredients include half a pound of fieldcress, a blotched snakehead, pork bone, 2 candied dates, tangerine peel 2 pieces and ginger
We bought fieldcress at Chinese herb shop at wet market. $30 for a pound
chop off the root of fieldcress
Wash the fieldcress thoroughly. It’s normally with lots of dirt so we need to wash it for multiple times
Put pork bone into tap water and boil it
Soak the tangerine peel in water and peel off the inner skin
Add pork bone, tangerine peel and candied dates into pot
Add fieldcress and water. Medium heat on
Wash the fish thoroughly. Basically we don’t want to see anything in red
This type of fish is full of body secretion. We can remove that in boiling water
Then further peel off the secretion with a table knife
Wipe dry the body
Fried a few slices of ginger and then the fish
Fish in the soup. Medium heat on for half an hour
This was how it looked after half an hour
Switch to low heat for another 1 hour and it’s done!
