Soup Name: Seabed Coconut with Carrot and Corn Soup
Traditional Chinese Name: 海底椰湯 (hai di ye tāng)
Very ideal soup for children. It helps eliminate a bit of heatiness and is very nourishing for the body. This soup is sweet to taste and because it uses pork shank, it has virtually no fat or oil in the soup.
What Ingredients are required?
200g pork shank
6 fresh (or frozen) seabed coconuts
3 fresh corn
2 L of water
How do I prepare it?
- Begin boiling your soup water
- Blanch the pork in a separate pot of boiling water
- Wash the seabed coconut
- Chop carrots and corn
- Add all the ingredients to boiling water
- Boil for at least 2 hours
- This neutral soup is ideal for all drinkers (even children)
- It will help relieve mild heatiness
- You must boil for at least 2 hours in order for all the flavour to come out
Can’t find those frozen seabed coconut here in Aus. How much to use if I am using dried seabed coconut?
Dear Ange, on average, for an average pot of about 3 L soup, use 10-12 large flakes. It’s definitely not as sweet or rich as the fresh coconut, but with limited choices, that’s still OK. Hope this helps! Lisa

Hello Lady Tong,
This recipe looks so interesting & ingredients are so simple. Now it’s simmering in my 7L Thermal Pot
But… It seem to lack a certain depth like what I used to.
Hopefully, after afew hours, it will taste better with 1 Sweet Date & 3 Dried Scallop added
Dear Rosaline, thank you for the feedback. The dried scallops actually do make a significant difference over time. That’s what the soup needs, is sometimes time to have all the flavours come out. Let me know how it ended up and how long you left is in the thermal pot for! Lisa
