Prawn Soup Noodles (虾面)


When I asked hubby what shall I cook for dinner that day and he joked with me that he wanted to eat homecook Prawn Soup Noodles(虾面). Hahahaha ….. I really feel like bagging on the wall but ……. everything must have the first time right? :P So after getting the necessary ingredients and peeling the prawns, suddenly hubby was so ‘helpful’ enough to throw away all the prawn shells which I kept for making prawn soup (>”<) So to make thing simple, I have decided to get the Prawn Noodle Paste instead. Save me some work and time for boiling the soup too :P So to make a bowl of hubby’s favourite Prawn Noodle, that’s what I have prepared to complete my “King’s” favourite dish. That’s basically what I can recoup from my memory of how a bowl of prawn soup noodle consists, right?

1. Home fried Ju-Yao-Zha (crispy pork lard)
2. Fried Shallots
3. Steamed peeled Prawns
4. Kang Kung
5. Steam Chicken
6. Boiled eggs
7. Noodles and rice vermicelli
*(all have been fried / cooked)


^ ^ My preparation for making a Prawn Noodles


^ ^ Arrange nicely on the bowl before pouring the soup

Preparing all the above were quite time consuming, especially slicing and peeling the shallots. Preparing the soup was easy and even added some fish sauce and some seasonings to make it suit our taste. Then all ingredients were arranged nicely in a bowl and pour in the soup, walahhhhhh …… it’s done!!!!

^ ^ The instant prawn soup paste I am using, very nice and very spicy ^_^

Hubby commended that it’s the nicest Prawn Soup Noodles that he has ever eaten and gave me 2 thumbs up and even asked me to cook that again for the next day and the day after. Hahahahaha ……. I think the Prawn Soup Noodle taste good too but just that the soup is a little too spicy for my poor taste buds but hubby just love the ‘ummpphhh’ from the hot and spicy prawn soup perfectly! So the entire pot of soup and all those you’ve seen in the pictures were polished off by hubby in no time. He surely have a huge appetite that night but poor me with my poor ‘lack of feeling’ tongue after the meal :P
