Shark's Fin Omelet is an irresistible side dish recipe. Once you try this effortlessly prepared simple recipe at your dinner party, I bet you would surely get a huge fan following.
  Sharks fin 1 Pound (Bought Already Prepared)
  Hot chicken stock 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Bean sprouts 3 Tablespoon
  Eggs 3
  Peanut oil 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Pepper 1 Pinch (Tiny Pinch)

Well cover the shark's fin with cold water and leave to soak all night.
Next day drain and wash thoroughly.
Cover with stock and let simmer for 3-4 hours.
Drain and shred it.
Meanwhile pick over, wash and rinse the bean sprouts.
To make the omelet, beat the eggs together just enough to blend them.
Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons peanut oil.
Very gently cook shark fin, without colouring, for 1 minute.
Add bean sprouts, cook for 1/2 minute.
To eggs work in the salt, pepper and 1/2 coffee spoon peanut oil.
Pour over shark's fin mixture.
Toss and turn mixture not allowing to colour.
When just ready to come together, form into an oval cushion shape and turn on to a warm serving dish.
The Chinese omelet is a mixture of ingredients held together with the beaten egg.
It should be succulent, moist but not 'runny' inside, and never firm.

Shark's fins should be banned for purchase . . .The sharks get de-finned on deck and thrown back in to the sea . . .ALIVE ! Ignorance is not an excuse people !

Yes it is really cruel. I have never understood why the shark fin? This same recipe can be made with crab or lobster meat and it tastes so great. Same is with the shark fin soup. It's time to stop eating it.
