When I was a boy, I loved eating shark fin soup at Chinese banquets in New York City. Restaurants can’t serve this Cantonese delicacy anymore because shark fin possession has been outlawed. Anyways, I found this recipe in an old cookbook.
Do you want to try Chinese turtle soup? I found this old recipe from “The Chinese Cook Book.” It tells you to boil three live turtles, then fry them in “Fun Wine.” This little gem was published in 1917. Here is the recipe mostly verbatim.
