Cooking techniques
  1. Soak the dried fish maw in water, preferably cold water and store it in the fridge. Make sure the water is completely cover up the whole body of fish maw. If the fish maw is too big, you may cut it into half or to the sizes you need.
  2. Check if the Fish maw is soften and easy to bend after storing for about 6-8 hours.
  3. After that, boil the soften fish maw with slices of ginger to remove the fishy smell. Add in cooking wine to further remove the fishy smell. Then boil it for about 1 minute.
  4. Finally, take out the fish maw and soak it in cold water and store in the fridge overnight, about 12 hours. Then it is ready to cook!

Note: be careful that the utensils for soaking must be oil-free and do not add soda to the water, or else the fish maw will melt readily and its taste gets altered.

Way of Storage:
Place the fish maw in cool and dry place. If it is to be stored for some time before serving, it should be sealed and place in refrigerator (0-8˚C)

WHAT SETS OUR FA GAU APART

Fish maw is alternatively called Fa Gau or Tou . By definition, it’s the dried fish bladder of a big fish. That may sound straightforward but many unscrupulous businesses find innovative ways to stretch that definition. 

What’s even better is our Fa Gau is no ordinary fish maw. Take note that the market is awash with hordes of fish maw brands that may not be as authentic as they claim. What we’re telling you is you’re not getting a run-of-the-mill product when you cater to our Fa Gau. In short, you’re getting the most bang for your buck. Here’s why: 

FROM THE ATLANTIC OCEAN TO THE PLATE

Fish maw is one delicious food you and the whole family can partake in. That’s assuming you’re getting your supply right. 

Know that due to limited supply, unethical businessmen skirt protocols. Instead of using big deep-sea fishes, they utilise small ones. Worse, they deceive people: produce imitations by using squid, shark's skin or head portion of fin soaked in hydrogen peroxide and sulphur followed by a heat process to produce the imitations. 

Plus, it’s also not uncommon for substandard products to be disguised as top-grade products.

And this is one area where our Fa Gau shines most — allowing you to relish a super delicious soup with wanton abandon. This product comes from the deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean. That means you are enjoying fish maw that comes from big fish caught in the wild and processed with utmost efficiency. Fish maw at its raw essence.

SUPERIOR PROCESSING

In any product, processing is key. Then again, it’s doubly important to process fish as a commodity. Our Fa Gau can only be as nutritious as they are fresh. That’s why our process doesn’t stop at harvesting. We track the fish from the ocean to your table. Now, you know why we employ such a slogan. That means we also track the fish once they arrive from the sea: at the port. Simply put, we check the following:

Fishing licence . Catch documentation . Date of transaction

Our rigorous process looks into the pertinent detail of the catch. Quite frankly, we treat our catch like gold so we can give you the best quality ever.

SUSTAINABLE FISHING

The ocean seems endless. It’s such a vast space that we think our supply of fish cannot be undermined. Take note, however, that there is such a thing as overfishing. And if we’re not careful it can happen to our supply for Fa Gau too. 

It’s rather simple actually. Overfishing is catching too many fish at a faster rate than what they can reproduce and grow. When that happens, this means systematic degradation. Year after year, the number of fish to catch and consume gets fewer and fewer

To combat that, we practise sustainable fishing. To do that, we observe measures and protocols provided to not sabotage the delicate balance of nature. 

For instance, we keep in mind the right place to catch fish in the wild as designated by authorities. We catch cod responsibly in the North-East Atlantic Ocean using sustainable methods of catching fish.

Plus, we observe Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standards. MSC  is an international non-profit organisation that recognises and rewards efforts to protect oceans and safeguard seafood supplies for the future.

Thus, source only from MSC approved stocks. That means our Gadus Morhua (North Atlantid cod) are as sustainable as can be. 

Again, you may think of the process as lengthy. But that’s part of the system to ensure you get your fair share of our Fa Gau for years to come.
