Strange Chinese delicacy of the week 14

Yet again the answer is plucked by Riccy quicker than a turkey at Christmas. The dish was indeed sea cucumber, abalone and bok choi. And tasty they were too, yes, real yummee… As it was a wedding meal we had to scoff it all down, but the wine made it easier to swallow most of it. We felt a tad guilty until we noticed that half the Chinese people on our table had eaten less of it than us!

So what does this week have in store? A nice easy one, so no clue for now. Hodgy, Mark, Carlton, Daniel Hunty, anyone else: now is your chance to beat Riccy!

Answers below as always.
