Mom's Style Braised Sea Cucumber (老妈子的焖海参)

Braised Sea Cucumber

This is one of mom's signature dishes we grown up with. Having said that, we could only have it during Chinese New Years or major celebrations. Those precious sea cucumbers were from my uncles they used to buy us some dried seafood from east of Malaysia whenever they visited us.

One of my nephews would never eat sea cucumber he asked why we eat those "worms" from the sea? He saw the live sea cucumber once when they went to the beach. Do you like the worm from the sea? Or... have you tasted it yet?

My parents and older relatives adore sea cucumbers but I've never liked them even as a child. I too thought of them as worms!
