一片蚊仔螵可以分来炖，像我都是把它剪成小小块的。每次只是用3-4片，约1 1/2大碗清水，加入几颗红枣或肉桂干，炖一整晚，明天早上就拿出来给小孩喝。因为，蚊仔螵本身有腥味的，所以加入红枣或肉桂干比较不会腥。 而且，喝起来还带点甜味，小孩会比较容易接受。
Fish Maw, it's got different chinese name depends on the type. haha
The most expensive maw is called "Mosquito maw", why people called like that, is just because the shape of the maw just look like mosquito. And its taken from a deep sea fish, that's why is more expensive compare to other type of maw.
I bought "mosquito maw" through my relatives at Tawau, because I myself don't know how to differentiate the type of maw. Avoid been cheated, you may buy at those trusted chinese shop that selling traditional medicine. Damai area got few shops that you can try look for it. As far as i know, the price for this mosquito maw is very expensive, is cost me around RM500.00 for 300g. But can last very long time .... :) Actually it's quite worth it.
Last time, my boy was suffered a cough and last for a month. After he fully recovered, my mother had asked me to use this mosquito maw boil a water for him to drink. Traditionally help him build up his lung after cough so long. Cough make our lung become weak, then we need to consume some nutrition food to make our lung healthy again.
I used to cut it into small pieces, and I only put in 3 or 4 small pieces, some red dates or dry longan to make the water sweet. Cook overnight then the next morning take out for my son to drink. The taste not bad and my son like it.
In chinese cooking book, maw is good for health. The common use is mix into the soup, or just boil a water like mine. I had a relatives which got asthma, and because he continuously drink that, and after some times he was fully recovered. I've heard people said maw is good especially to those suffer cough, phlegm or asthma problem.
