Reminiscent of the Mee Gorengs that we would always order at Seafood Restaurants, but at a fraction of the cost. Plus, you get to adjust the sweetness and spiciness levels AND load it up with seafood to your heart's content!
You will need -
Large Red Onions, cut into chunks
Tomatoes, cut into large chunks
Seafood (I like to buy the peeled, uncooked frozen prawns)
Tomato Ketchup - 3 TB
Kecap Manis - 1 TB
Oyster Sauce - 1 TB
Dark Soya Sauce (optional, only to add colour}
Garlic - chopped
Sliced Red Chilli (optional)
Sambal (optional - I tend not to like using Sambal in my dishes. The taste is overpowering and detracts from the real flavour of the dish. Better to use cut red chilli)
Prepare Seasoning - Mix Kecap Manis, Ketchup, and Oyster Sauce.
Beat Eggs (season with a little Soy Sauce & Pepper),
Loosen up Yellow Noodles
Add a little oil to the wok. When very hot, throw in the chunks of Red Onions and fry on high heat for a short while, just to give the onions a slightly smoky flavour. It should still look crunchy and not soft, and definitely not caramelized. Remove from wok.
Step Four: Add a little oil into the wok. Add garlic and fry till golden brown. Fry Prawns till cooked.
Add loosened Noodles. Do NOT blanch noodles first. It should go straight from the fridge and into the wok.
Add seasoning, a little at a time and taste along the way. This is the time to adjust the seasoning to achieve the perfect blend of sweet and spicy.
Create a little space in centre of the wok by pushing noodles to the side.
Add eggs and cook till 90% done
Mix together with Noodles.
Add vegetables, tomatoes and fried red onions.
Stir till tomatoes and vegetables yield slightly to the heat.
You're done !
Serve with a squeeze of lime and a side of sliced cucumbers.
