You may have heard of Shark Fin Soup, once a revered delicacy enjoyed by Chinese royalty and elites, then a luxurious banquet food for modern celebrations, and now... nowhere to be found!
It took years of environmental activism and a lot of help from celebrity platforms, but the cruel and unsustainable practice of harvesting shark fins, and how ecologically destructive the overfishing of sharks is, has finally come to public attention in the last several years, leading to the practice being completely banned in some countries.
However, Shark Fin Soup has had such a cultural standing in food history that people still kind of want to celebrate with it. But how do we keep it ethical?
Try this lookalike "Imitation Shark Fin Soup", which tastes similar but actually better, and is so easy to make!
