Seven-star Fish Ball Soup

Seven-star Fish Ball Soup is a traditional Fuzhou soup dish originated in the early Qing dynasty which till now has more than 300 years of history.

Seven-star Fish Ball Soup looks pure white and the fish balls taste tender and scrumptious. It has a unique cooking technique and very strict selection of ingredients. The fish balls stuffed with minced pork look like stars in the night sky and so the dish is called “Seven-star Fish Ball Soup”.

When cooking the Seven-star Fish Ball Soup, one needs to mince sea eel or freshwater fish into paste, then mix with potato starch. Later the paste is used to coat the stuffing made of lean pork or shrimps.
