Chinese Jellyfish Salad


  • 1/2 lb of jellyfish
  • 2 tbs rice vinegar
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 tbs soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp chopped chili peppers

Jellyfish salad is commonplace in chinese cuisine. It has a surprisingly crunchy texture and delicious taste. This recipe will give you a flavor profile of sweet, salty and sour. The jellyfish are available at Asian markets sometimes fresh and also salted.

  • Rinse the salt off the jellyfish and cut into long shreds about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Soak the jellyfish shreds in a large bowl filled with cool water overnight, changing the water several times until most of the salt is gone and the jelly fish tastes neutral.
  • Drain out the water and put jelly fish back  into a large bowl.
  • Pour enough boiling water over jellyfish to cover and let sit for 1 minute. This will help to make the jelly fish crunchy.
  • Drain the jellyfish and plunge into ice cold water to stop cooking.
  • Once jellyfish is cook drain completely.
  • Add the vinegar, sugar, sesame oil and chili peppers.
  • Mix and taste, then adjust seasoning if necessary.
  • The flavor should be sweet, salty and sour.
  • Cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour before serving.
