Flavorful Braised Sea Cucumbers with Shiitake Mushroom 🍄 海参与蘑菇

✴️I personally super love eating sea cucumbers. In Malaysia, this is very expensive food to eat. So my mom will only prepare this for special festival like CNY.
✴️I bought a pack of dried sea cucumber from costco with its very reasonable price
✴️My mom told me to buy and store another 2 packs, because she said it’s way too cheap 🤣🤣
✴️Sea cucumbers are incredibly nutritious, high in proteins and have unique textures like soft and elastic
✴️I followed the package instructions on how rehydrate and clean the sea cucumbers. It wasn’t much work to clean because the internal part of sea cucumber actually very clean, I cut them in half and make sure rinse with tap water
✴️I like the extra sauces/broth from the dish as it pair well with noodles or rice
✴️I didn’t cut the sea cucumbers in small slices, but they’re still very well done
