Original Recipe by Jimmy Chua, from his cook book “Hawker Food” or “Masakan Penjaja”
This week, hubby is away for 4 days so I decided to cook something that is relatively simple yet delicious, and would make great lunch packs. I flipped through the “Hawker Food” cookbook which I have bought while I was in Malaysia… and HELLO Seafood Mee Goreng recipe! Believe it or not, I have cooked MANY stirfries… but not quite the Seafood Mee Goreng. Sometimes I wondered why, since this is probably one of my favorite fried noodles dish ever. So I went and did my grocery shopping and bought all the ingredients I needed.
The result? Of course it was delicious, otherwise I wouldn’t post it on here, lol. Speaking of successes, I tried making the Pavlova last night and failed miserably.. thus no blog entry for Pavlova. But never mind that story!! I’m back and blogging recipes and this is definitely one to keep. Enjoy!!
2 eggs (beaten)
1 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp sambal chilli paste
1 onion (shredded)
500g Hokkien Mee
100g fresh bean sprouts
Cai-Xin (Kimba’s Note: I have NO idea where to find this.. so I used chopped Spring Onions instead)
200g prawns (shelled and blanched)
200g squid (sliced)
(Kimba’s Note: For ultimate seafood lovers – instead of just using prawns and squid, I actually went out and got the seafood marinara mix from Coles comprising of prawns, squid, fish and mussels!)
2 tomatoes (sliced)
2 red chillis (shredded)
3 tbsps water
4 tbsps tomato sauce
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp sugar
Pinch of pepper
Fry chopped garlic in 3 tbsps of oil until fragrant. Add sambal chilli paste and beaten eggs. Stir well.
Add onion, Hokkien Mee, Cai Xin (or spring onions) and bean sprouts. Stir well.
Stir in seafood mix and seasoning. Stir fry until fragrant. Add tomatoes and red chillies. Stir well. Serve with squeezed lime juice on top.
