DIRECTIONS

Soak sea cucumbers in a pot of water overnight. Use a lid to cover pot.

 

Ensure the pot is:

  1. clean with no oil or rice in it. (otherwise sea cucumbers will not expand)

  2. large enough for water to fully cover the sea cucumbers and for them to expand.

Step 2 

 

Change water in pot and boil for 10 minutes with sea cucumbers in it. Leave them to soak overnight again.

Step 3 

 

Touch and examine if sea cucumbers are soft enough to be cut open.

 

  • If not, repeat step 2.

  • If yes, using a knife, cut open and wash away sand, intestine and any other impurities found in it. Change water in pot and place the sea cucumbers in fridge (lower compartment). Continue to soak them for two to three days.

Step 4 

 

After soaking for two to three days, sea cucumbers should be soft and enlarged.
