There are a lot of Chinese restaurants that serve Seafood Fried Noodles on their menu. Unlike my other dish - Clam and Mussel Fried Noodles, I found this recipe in a Taiwanese cook book but I changed it slightly by adding a wider variety of vegetables and seafood. It tasted so yummy! The julienned carrots give an extra texture and the clams give an oceany flavour to the noodles. I also added a cup of chicken stock to cook with the noodles so the noodles don't require a lot of oil to cook. The chicken stock goes great with seafood, and it's healthier. I bought the pre-cut squid from a local Chinese supermarket. If you can't find it, the preparation is fairly easy.
- 8 oz egg noodles
- 5 oz clams
- 1 cup of shrimp
- 2 cups of squid
- 2 carrots
- 4 green onion
- 3 oz Chinese lettuce
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup of chicken stock
- 1 tsp white pepper powder
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp vinegar
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp cooking wine
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- Julienne the carrot, cut the green onion approximately an inch and a half long. Mix all the frying sauce in a bowl.
- Pare and clean the squid, cut light crosses on it and slice it (you can also buy pre-cut squid from any Chinese supermarket).
- Bring half a medium pot of water to a boil. When the water is boiled add noodles to the boiling water and cook for 1 minute. Transfer to a colander, rinse with cold water and drain the water. Add 1 tbsp olive oil to the noodles, and mix evenly.
- Bring half a medium pot of water to a boil. Blanche clams, shrimps and squid into the boiling water until they are open. Transfer to a plate.
- In a nonstick medium saucepan or a wok, heat 1½ tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat. Add green onion, carrot and Chinese lettuce to cook. After about 2 minutes, when the lettuce is tender and soft add clams, shrimps and squid. Stir everything evenly and then add the frying sauce. Mix everything evenly, add the noodles. Stir everything for a couple of minutes, add 1 cup of chicken stock. Mix everything evenly and keep stirring everything for a few minutes. Transfer the noodles to servering plates, enjoy!
