Ingredients
  Bamboo shoot 1 Pound (500 Gram)
  Peeled prawns 1 1⁄2 Ounce (50 Gram)
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Cornflour 2 Teaspoon
  Water 1 Tablespoon
  Crab roe 1⁄2 Ounce (50 Gram, Fresh)
  Chicken stock 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Spinach leaves 7 Ounce (200 Gram)
Directions

Trim off and discard the sides of the bamboo shoots to make long rectangles.
Using a very sharp, small knife, cut a "V" shape on each side of the rectangle and prise off the piece of bamboo shoot, which will resemble a flower.
Mince or blend together the prawns, salt, 1 teaspoon of cornflour and water.
Put a small amount of this mixture into the centre of each bamboo "flower" and top with a tiny dab of crab roe.
Arrange on a plate and steam over high heat for 3-4 minutes.
While the bamboo shoots are steaming, bring a pan of salted water to the boil and blanch the spinach leaves until tender.
Drain.
When the bamboo shoots are ready, put on a serving plate and surround with the spinach leaves.
Heat chicken stock and thicken with the remaining teaspoon of cornflour blended with water.
Pour over the bamboo shoots and serve immediately.
