Sea Snail Chicken Soup

Submitted by on August 17, 2009 – 10:31 amOne Comment | 13,277 views

Soup Name: Sea Snail Chicken Soup

Traditional Chinese Name: 螺片雞腳湯 (luó piàn ji jiǎo tāng) 


One of the best perks of updating TheChineseSoupLady.com is the excuse to buy and try new chinese soups!  Although I enjoy drinking soups made with sea snails in local chinese restaurants, I have never used this ingredient before myself.   After returning from a trip where I traveled by plane and was feeling dry-eyed with dry skin and a dry throat, I decided to create a moistening soup to help my body to fully rehydrate.  It turned out wonderfully.   It was delicious and, after a large bowl of soup followed by a good night’s sleep, I feel 100% myself again.

What Ingredients are required?

7 pieces chicken feet
2 slices sea snail (dried)
1 palm adenophora root (dried)
1 palm solomon’s seal (dried)
8 pieces dried chinese yam slices 

2 large dried dates
15 g wolfberries (dried)

2-3 L of water

How do I prepare it?

  1. Wash and soak the dried sea snail slices for 20 minutes
  2. Start boiling your water soupPut all ingredients into the boiling water
  3. In a separate pot, blanch the chicken feet and strain it removing any dirt and debris from the blanching
  4. Trim the nails and hardened skin from the chicken feet and add them to the boiling water of your soup
  5. Cut the softened sea snail into easy-to-eat pieces (I prefer long, thin slices).
  6. Place all ingredients into your boiling soup water.
  7. Boil on high for 30 minutes.   Reduce to simmering for 2 hours (or use internal pot).
  8. Serve and enjoy!

 Any benefits?

  • A wonderful “moistening” soup created with ingredients known to help moisten lungs, throat and the skin
  • The chicken feet give this soup a silky, rich texture
  • Low in fat
