Ingredients for Chicken and conch soup with honey dew melon :

  • Honey dew melon — one
  • Chicken — half
  • Chinese ham — 40g
  • Ginger — a few slices
  • Water — 12 bowls


  • Clean the conch feet.
  • Cut the melon in halves, discard the seeds and cut cubes from it.
  • Blanch the pork, the chicken, the conch feet and the chicken feet for about 3-4 minutes to wipe out scum like blood and grease.

  • Simmer gently for another 2 hours.
  • Skim fat from the soup, add the melon cubes, cook in low heat for another 45 minutes.

 Tips for cooking this chinese soup:

1. Unlike the dried conch feet I once did here, which ready for use right away, we need to swab the swarthy and squishy dirt away from the fresh conch feet. A good way to do this, as told by my beloved fishmonger, is to rub it with your damnedest effort with sea salt on the cutting board — one by one.

2. Remember to skim fat from the soup before you dunk in the melon cubes. An easy way to do this that I learnt lately is to toss a handful of ice cubes and skim them out with the fat that congeals around them.

3. Get an old chicken — they have much more flavor. An old ‘stewing’ hen is excellent for this soup. The young supermarket hens, though less greasy, have no flavor at all.
