Instructions
  1. Soak in cool water, the dried starfish, dried scallops and dried tangerine peel for 15 minutes
  2. Begin to prepare the corn by quartering it and the Chinese Yam, by peeling and cutting 1-inch long pieces (be sure to wear gloves)
  3. Using a sharp knife edge, scrape off the top-side (darker side) of the tangerine peel in running water (to remove more of the bitterness)
  4. Using a sharp knife edge, scrape off the underside of the starfish until all the little rivets are gone
  5. Cut the starfish into suitable sized pieces for your soup
  6. Thinly Slice your fresh ginger
  7. In a separate pot, boil enough water to cover the starfish and once it's boiling, throw in the ginger (saving 1-2 pieces for the soup) and blanch the starfish on high heat for 5 minutes
  8. Remove the starfish and set aside
  9. In the same pot, boil enough water to cover your pork shank and blanch that on high heat for 5 minutes
  10. Remove the pork shank and set aside
  11. Boil your soup water
  12. Once the water boils, add all the ingredients together (including the remaining ginger). Boil on high heat for 30 minutes and reduce to a medium heat for 2 hours.
  13. Taste and salt as necessary
  14. Serve and enjoy!
