Drying seafood is an age-old Chinese tradition. Dried seafood is made by drying out seafood under the sun. This process not only preserves food without the aid of refrigeration but also intensifies its flavor, nutrients, and texture.
The assortment of dried seafood in Hong Kong is as rich as the South China Sea. You can find abalone, oysters, scallop, sea cucumber, squid, and many different kinds of fish. No idea how to cook dried seafood? They are excellent braised, in soup and stir-fry, and as congee toppings.
