When you first taste this soup, it will taste some how like you are drinking red bean soup. Because they do have the similar taste due to the dried tangerine peel and lily bubs. This soup helps to promote circulation of Qi, expel septum and aids digestion. The sweet and bitter almonds also clears the heat, moistens internal dryness and avoids coughing. It is a very good sweet soup to consume before or after dinner to smooth your throat. Do consider and give it a try.

Being wanting to cook this soup for quite sometime but since it was difficult to get hold of the fresh Sea Coconut I postpone it till now. From what I have read from books, Sea Coconut can expels sputum, heals coughing, reduces night-time urination as well as nourishes the lungs and skin. Furthermore it makes a refreshing, fragrant soup together with red dates and chicken.

These days the weather is pretty bad with super hot and humid afternoon or rainy gloomy sky. So in order to keep healthy, I come up with a new weekly menu planner that includes at least 3 - 4 of these Detoxifies Soup in our dinner. In short, soup is like the rain after drought to keep your skin moist and radiant. Loofah (丝瓜) is rich in vitamins B and C; besides that it also helps to clear heat, detoxifies, promotes blood circulation and prevents skin aging too. Furthermore this soup also whitens the skin and improves wrinkles and prevents freckles.

Three Treasure Seafood Pot is similar to those 一品锅 that which usually found at the coffee shop 煮抄摊 where they have variety of seafood such as: prawn, squid, mussels, scallop, fish and mix vegetables. This version that I made consists of three seafood which are prawn, squid and fish fillet and the total ingredients including veggie is only about $8.00. Definitely much cheaper when comparing to those sold outside.
