The cuisine of the seaport city of Quanzhou has been influenced by many different cultures, some even overseas. Cooks use the local seaside provender and exotic methods to create a variety of special dishes. Among these dishes, the most famous are local appetizers. Their popularity has spread to other countries in south and east Asia. The following is a sampler of Quanzhou's more famous recipes.
Kezai Jian (Fried Oyster)
This is a traditional snack cooked with big, fleshy oysters and fresh leeks. The oysters are mixed with the leeks and sweet potato powder together with clear water and pan fried for about two minutes. Then they are sprinkled with some lard, soy and vinegar and turned over several times in the pan. Finally, the oysters are topped with a fried egg. You can add more flavors to this dish by adding shallots and pepper.
Tusun Dong (Frozen Siphon Worm)
Tusun is a kind of eatable insect about four inches long living on the sandy shores. Locals often remove the insects' haslets and boil only their outer bodies in clear water. The pectin inside the insects' bodies is then mixed with water and frozen. After freezing, the mixture takes the form of a pure white jelly. When eating the frozen jelly, you can boost its flavor by adding vinegar, sweet catsup, garlic, tomatoes or any condiment you wish.
Mianxian Hu (Noodles in Soup)
This dish is a soup that is prepared with oysters, shrimps and mussels on a slow fire. Thin noodles are then added. The dish is complete when the noodles become mushy and blend with the soup. Sometimes, mushrooms and fish fillets are added to make the dish even more tasty.
Rouzong (Pyramid-Shaped Dumplings Made of Pork)
These dumplings are made with many ingredients including not only pork and glutinous rice, but also mushrooms, chestnuts, lotus seeds, ham and chicken. The preparation is also quite complicated. First the pork is boiled with various seasonings. Then the rice is stir-fried with the both of the stewed pork. After the rice is cooked, it is mixed with the pork, chestnuts, mushrooms and other condiments in bamboo leaves. Finally, the dumplings are simmered in a big pot for about half a day. Rouzong tastes rich and sweet, but not greasy. You can add some gingili sauce or garlic if you like.
Shenhu Yuwan (Fish Pellet)
This dish is quite representative of Quanzhou cuisine. Fish pellets are made by mixing eel meat and sweet potatoes powder with egg whites. They can be formed round, rectangular or even in the shape of a fish. The pellets are boiled in water, then covered with hot chicken soup and sprinkled with peppers, garlic and coriander leaves. The pellets are snow-white and tender and have a crisp, delicate taste.
