Shrimp Noodle

   How about more noodles?  The recipe is quite similar to the vegetarian one I posted a while back.  But the addition of shrimp and oyster sauce gives it another dimension.  The process is all similar but as you will agree it's the ingredients that makes the difference.  Most of the ingredients I have used today can be found in anybody's kitchen and also a few tips to enhance the flavors if you choose can be found in the foot note.

  Cleveland where I am right now is proving to be quite exciting.  Did I tell you there is going to be a Onam Sadya around here..  Broadview Heights Recreation Center, 9543 Broadview Road, Broadview Heights , Oh 44147.  This will be on Sep 4th, 6 PM to 10 PM.  If you are in Ohio you might want to go take a look.  I haven't decided if I am going but it sure is in my mind.

   While I go enjoy my rest of the day browsing in blogland I wish you a good day too.
Shrimp Noodles


Egg Noodles - 1 packet (200 gm)
Ginger - 1 Tbspn
Garlic - 2 Tbspn
Carrot - 1 julienned
Cabbage - long slender shreds (1 cup packed)
Beans - 20 nos juliened

Soyabean sauce - to taste.  I added 2 Tbspn
Green chilies - 2

Marinate Shrimp

Shrimp - 10 or 15 in number
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tspn
Oyster sauce - 1 Tbspn
Chili powder - 1/2 tspn

Ground Pepper - 1 tspn (or sprinkle to taste)

Shrimp Noodle

1. Cook Noodles as per packet instruction.  I run cold water over the cooked noodle and pour and toss it in 1 tbspn of oil and set aside

Marinate Shrimp:
1. Add oyster sauce, chili powder a little soya sauce and the ginger garlic paste and marinate for 20 minutes
2.  Heat a wok or big open pan which can hold the vegetables and noodles together and heat.
3. Pour 1 Tbspn of oil and add the chopped ginger and stir for a couple of seconds and add garlic.
4. Add the marinated prawns and saute for a minute and add the green chilies, beans, carrots and cabbage
5. Once the prawns have turned white or pink (color the shrimp turns to when cooked) depending on the type of shrimp you use add capsicum and stir on high heat to cook the edges
6. Add some remaining soyabean sauce and toss in the cooked noodles
7. Check for salt and taste and add some more soyabean sauce if needed

Shrimp Noodle

Notes: You can add 1 tspn of the stir fried chili sauce, maggi chicken bullion 1/2 packet etc to enhance the taste.  Aginomoto about 1/4 tspn also will help to enhance the flavors.  When I need to add a little spark to the noodle I do that sometimes.  On a regular basis prefer to avoid.
