4. While waiting for the pig ear to cook, peel and shred your carrots.
5. Add 1 tbsp of salt to the carrots and allow to sit for 5 minutes to help soften the carrots.
6. Rinse the carrots to remove the salt and allow to dry. Set aside.
7. Drain the pickled lotus root jar and clean the lotus root with water.
8. Slice the lotus roots into thin slices.

12. Slice your shrimps in half.
