Fried Egg Noodle w/Shrimps & Egg

They sell it in a packet at your local Asian grocery store. Cost about 3 euro here in Dublin. Something to try for a change. I love noodles so much be it an instant noodles or noodle soup or pan fry noodle. For any Asian originated person noodle related food is one of their favorites and everywhere you go, be it in Malaysia or Singapore you will see people selling noodle of all varieties. It's a delicacy.

For Asians, noodle are mainly for breakfast or late supper. Their main meals are mainly rice. For me, I can have noodle in any time of the day, be it breakfast, brunch, lunch, hi-tea, dinner or supper. It will definitely make my day. And here in Dublin, I have no choice but to cook one of my own. This is the closest I can get.

1 Packet Yellow Noodle
10 Shrimps
1 Egg
1 Stalk Spring Onion
1 Clove Garlic
1 Thai Chili (Optional)
A handful of Beansprouts
Sesame Oil
2 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce
2 Tablespoon Chili Sauce
1 tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Fish Sauce

Clean the shrimps and blanch them and place aside while heating your wok. Add oil and when hot add garlic in. Once it turns a little brown you can add in the shrimps and the Thai chili. A minute or two then you can throw in the egg. Stir them around for a minute before you can add in the noodle. Your stove must be in "high". Do not worry as it will not burn the noodle. Stir it for two three minutes before you can add in the sauces. Taste it and you know what to do next on what needs to be added...I hope so as if you are following my blog you should be good in adding sauces. Lastly, when the noodle is said to be done you can add the beansprouts and the spring onions. Give it a last stir and it's ready for serving. Enjoy...bring a friend as it's enough for two.
