Cook for another 2 minutes with the lid on. Add in the crab sticks/imitation crab and the leaves from the bok choy. Adjust the taste with soysauce if it's needed.

・By thawing the seafood mixture in salted water you are removing the fishy smell while still retaining the texture of seafood.
・You can add in mushrooms, leeks and carrots for more options.
・If you are sensitive to the smell of shellfish then add grated ginger!
・Depending on which brand of chicken stock you are use, the sodium contents varies. Feel free to adjust the taste by adding salt or water.
