Pork Ribs and Sweet Corn Soup

This soup comes out light and tasty. The sweet corn gives it the unique flavour, while the pork ribs provide the richness.

Pork Ribs and Sweet Corn Soup (serves 2)

4-5 pieces pork ribs (preferably with a bit of meat)
2 -3 sticks sweet corn
1/2 stick carrot
6-8 red dates
2-3 pieces dried scallop

1. Wash and clean the pork ribs
2. Wash and cut sweet corn into halves
3. Wash and cut carrot into cubes
4. Soak and wash red dates. Remove seeds
5. Soak dried scallop in water. Save water for later

Cooking steps
1. Blanch the pork ribs with boiling water to rid of odour and oily fats
2. Place pork ribs, sweet corn, carrot, red dates and dried scallop (including the water it was soaked in) into a pot
3. Put enough water to cover the top of the ingredients
4. Put on high and bring to a boil, before turning down to medium to simmer for 1-2 hours
5. Serve hot in individual soup bowls, with pork ribs, sweet corn and carrot, for a nice clear soup
