Fresh Shrimp, Mushroom, and Tofu Soup


  • Shrimp, 250g
  • 2 Eggs
  • Soft Tofu, 200g

  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Cooking Wine
  • Cooking Oil, as needed
  • 1 large bowl of Water

  2. Heat oil over low heat and fry the eggs without scrambling. Once both sides are golden brown, cut them into pieces.

  4. Fry the shrimp in the same pan until they change color.
  5. Turn up the heat to medium, add white jade mushrooms, and stir-fry briefly.
  6. Add the eggs back in, pour in enough water to cover the ingredients, and simmer for 5 minutes.
  7. Cut the tofu into chunks and add to the soup. Cook for another 3 minutes, then season with salt and garnish with chopped green onions before serving.
