Buddha Jumps Over the Wall


With the long weekend coming up, I want to attempt making this. I've made this before just by winging it but was wondering if anyone has a recipe? The only one I can find online has lamb, carrots, quail eggs and duck as well as jin hua ham.

I don't believe that's what I've had in restaurants. I've only had it twice but my favorite is the one at Koi Palace, which I believe has sea cucumber, ginseng, mushroom, sharks' fin, dried abalone, dried scallop maybe bamboo pith.

Does the jin hua ham need to be soaked or parboiled before double boiling the soup?

What's the best way to rehydrate dried abalone?
