METHOD

1. For the fish rolls, di­vide the fish paste into three. Spread evenly on each omelette and smooth the paste with a wet knife. Roll tightly so you get a firm pat­tern when sliced, then steam the rolls for eight min­utes over boil­ing wa­ter. Set aside to cool, then slice (0.5cm thick). 2. For the chicken balls, mix the in­gre­di­ents well. With wet hands, shape into small balls. 3. To make the soup, boil chicken bones in the wa­ter and strain the stock. Bring the chicken stock to a boil, then add the dried fish blad­der and chicken balls. Now add the car­rot, fish balls, cab­bage and chicken. Sea­son and add the sliced fish rolls. Turn off heat. 5. Gar­nish with co­rian­der leaves and crisp-fried shal­lots. Serve hot.
