Shark Fin Soup

Benu

7x7
Just as the ban on shark fin was proposed in California, this gorgeous dish became a signature of Lee's. Made with chicken broth, Chinese ham, truffles, and ginger, the concoction depends on hydrocolloids instead of actual shark fin to create the gelatinous texture for which the soup is so prized. All of this floats on a layer of truffle custard topped with crab.
