shark’s fin



  • The fin of a species of shark found in the Indian Ocean. It requires lengthy preparation to clean and soften it and it may be converted into chips or strands. It is always cooked in a rich stock of poultry bones and pork shank, possibly supplemented with dried oyster and con poy. Whole cleaned fins are slow- cooked and eaten for their taste and texture, usually without any accompaniment save perhaps a little vinegar.
