Dog Conch has a very cute name Gong Gong here in Singapore. My husband told me he never tried gong gong before. We were planning to give it a try when we went to Bintan. Yet, we changed our mind to try local Indonesian food instead.
Today, we saw live gong gong at supermarket. We were very curious about them. it was also the first time for my husband to see live gong gong. And we decided to buy some and cook at home.
We bought 10 gong gong, around 500 g @ S$1.5, very cheap.
I put them in a basin. and soaked them in salty water. After 30 mins, they spitted much dirt. I rinsed them again and again till water is clear.
- Boil some water in a pot. Add in several ginger slices and salt.
- When water boils, add gong gong in. And boil for 20 mins.
- Rinse them under water and wash them clean.
- Place gong gong in a plate. Spread some chopped spring onion, ginger and garlic.
- Heat a pan. Add in 2 tablespoon oil. Pour oil over the spring onion and garlic.
- Serve with chili sauce.
My husband loved them. He even washed and kept all the shells.
