Why Cook With Frozen Sea Cucumber?
Sea cucumbers, not to be confused with a vegetable, are marine animals that live on the seafloor and are often caught by divers or farmed commercially for consumption. This tubular animal is considered a delicacy throughout Asia, particularly in seaside villages where they are more common. The Sea Cucumber is often considered a symbol of happiness (“hoi sam”), making it an auspicious ingredient to use in dishes around Chinese Lunar New Year.
Sea cucumbers have also been used in traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years and are used as a derivative in modern medicine. Sea cucumber is mainly used for its potent anti-inflammatory effects, which have helped alleviate pain in patients with arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
Consuming sea cucumbers has many health benefits. They are very low in fat and are an excellent source of vitamins. By eating sea cucumber, you receive Vitamin A, riboflavin, niacin, calcium and magnesium. All of these are essential for a well-rounded diet and healthy body functioning.
Preparing Frozen Sea Cucumber
Sea cucumber has a fairly bland taste, which means it is often used in broths and pickled dishes where it can take on the flavour of surrounding ingredients. We love preparing a sea cucumber stir fry with pork, shitake mushrooms and a rich dark soy sauce dressing. You can also braise frozen sea cucumber to enhance its unique texture. At your next steamboat dinner, try integrating sea cucumber into the dishes, and be sure to complement it with a flavoursome dressing or sauce.
