4 large whole pre-soaked sea cucumbers, preferably those with spiked exteriors, intestines and other interior parts removed
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 scallions, minced
1 slice fresh ginger, minced
1 cup reduced fish broth
1 teaspoon thin soy sauce
1 teaspoon abalone soy sauce
1 teaspoon Chinese rice wine
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 Tablespoon cornstarch mixed with twice that amount of cold water
1. Steam roe for five minutes, mash with a fork or fingers, and set them aside.
2. Blanch sea cucumbers for ninety seconds, then remove and rinse well.
