  1. 我係香港嘅觀眾 由 我喺youtube搵 乾炒牛河食譜 就搵到你個頻道
    一直支持到宜家 同埋好喜歡你個頻道影片 最喜歡就係你吹笛聲嗰啲音樂🎶
    我覺得整個影片嗰啲笛聲音樂🎺🎵係主要嘅靈魂 加埋主廚 我很喜歡❤

  2. Saving this. Thanks for teaching it to us! I've always wondered how you make this but never got around to asking my parents.

    If you added imitation shark fin, would it basically be the same soup as the real stuff, or is the base broth substantially different than this?

  3. Comparing the amount of scallop your dad put in his soup vs. how much my mom used to put in hers… I have questions for my mom hahaha (jk her soups were good, I think she did scallop combined with other flavors)

    By the way, if Uncle Lau can show an easy way to use Chinese rose wine (mei gui lu), that would be much appreciated… I bought a bottle to make mei cai kou rou, realized I don't like the flavor as much as I thought I would, and have been trying to use up the bottle in drips and drops since last year XD

    PS: shark fin soup is sadly still legal and common in Singapore, though there is a movement to ban shark fin. As others have mentioned, it's a way to show off your wealth and generosity. (You see this with abalone too.) The last time I had it served was at a relative's 80th birthday, and my brother and I refused it… hopefully more and more people refuse it and keep pressuring the government to ban it.

  4. Thank you for spreading the awareness about how unsustainable shark fin soup is. Always disappoints me seeing shark fin soup sold by either super fancy Chinese banquet restaurant or ultra-exclusive seafood suppliers in my country, even though Indonesia already put bans on shark fin sales.

  5. 點解宜家個標題完全冇咗繁體中文 我建議劉生 繁體中文同英文 兩者共存

  6. I always enjoyed shark fin soup, with real shark fin, with imitation shark fin, or just with other flavor ingredients. The soup itself is delicious. Haven't had real shark fin in a long time, and it's a shame that the way it is often obtained is done cruelly. I do think, however, a total ban is a bit far. There should be legal venues for cruelty free fins from non-endangered species of sharks. People eat shark meat in many parts of the world, surely there must be an ethical source of their fins too if meat can be provided. Definitely not enough to meet a global demand, but at least a local demand. I say this not necessarily because I'd ever want to eat it again myself, not at the prices they go for now at least, but because ultimately it is culinary history and if there's an ethical way to preserve it that would be beneficial. The alternatives are just as good though.

  7. Nice thought, shark fin fishing is very destructive. Killing a fish for one small piece and dumping the corpse is pretty messed up.

    I like how your dad says people don't make shark fin anymore, that's sweet, don't disabuse him of that thought.

  8. one of your most interesting recipes yet!
    your intro script saying, "a recipe that tastes even better than shark fin" was a false red flag for me
    i thought, is this even related to shark fin? is this just clickbait? because i've never had shark fin. i am not sure what to expect
    note for future maybe say: "a recipe that is based on shark fin, but ethical" or something

    otherwise, awesome! always love to see a new recipe from daddy lau and your family. i appreciate what you do
