Sweet Potato, Corn and Chinese Yam in Fish Soup

Submitted by on January 20, 2013 – 10:18 am2 Comments | 14,102 views

Soup Name: Sweet Potato, Corn and Chinese Yam in Fish Soup

Traditional Chinese Name:  蕃薯玉米魚湯 (gān shǔ yù mǐ yú tāng)

This simple and slightly sweet soup is really ideal for kids and children. I originally made this as a base for a lunch (consisting of fish balls and macaroni) and the kids loved it! Soups are so diverse in that you can use it as a base for stews, congee, noodles and other Chinese dishes. Keeping it simple will allow you to diversify your “final” dish and get really creative!


What Ingredients are required?

2-3 fresh Grass Carp fillets, chunked
5 slices of fresh ginger
3 foot long pieces of Chinese Yam, peeling is optional, quartered
3 fresh corn, quartered
3 large sweet potatoes, halved

2-3 L of water
salt to taste (optional)

How do I prepare it?

  1. In a shallow pan, fry the fish with the ginger until the meat is cooked and the edges are slightly crispy
  2. When cooked, set aside to cool
  3. Prepare vegetables and take caution with the Chinese Yam (wear gloves or keep the skin on)
  4. Boil your soup water
  5. When the water boils, add all the ingredients together and boil on high for thirty minutes
  6. Reduce heat to simmer for another thirty minutes
  7. Salt to taste if needed, but try it first
  8. Serve and enjoy!

Any benefits?

  • This soup serves as a great base for noodles or macaroni
  • It is very low in fat
  • A neutral soup that is ideal for the whole family
  • All the ingredients can be consumed

Any precautions?

  • Be careful of bones on the fish fillet if eating as a meal
