FOOD, My recipes, Uncategorized HOMECOOKED SEAFOOD NOODLES & BREADED SCALLOPS 14 June 2006

Made 2 meals with the fresh seafood that we bought from the Fish Markets on Monday.. first one was Homecooked stir-fried seafood with noodles, in garlic/chilli/oyster sauce. It took a grand total of less than 5 minutes to make.. since all the effort was just in stir-frying the seafood, which cooked really quickly. I found it too spicy for my liking though, so I had to rinse off the noodles under some water, *lol*.. I overestimated just how much chilli I can handle (which is not much at all!). But it makes a lovely, quick meal.. and fresh seafood is always the best :)~


All ready to be cooked

Egg noodles
Assorted seafood
1/2 red capsicum, sliced
1.5 tbsp Lee Kum Kee garlic chilli sauce
1 tbsp Lee Kum Kee premium oyster sauce

1) Cook egg noodles in boiling water according to packet instructions or until tender. Drain.
2) Stir-fry capsicum in some oil. Add seafood and cook through.
3) Add egg noodles and combined sauces. Stir well until heated through.

And for tonight, I had a bunch of scallops and decided to make a Homecooked breaded scallops with lemon & parsley fish, jullienned carrots and potato salad. I actually cheated as the fish was a frozen meal – Birds Eye make the best frozen fish! So yummy and cooks in a few mins in the microwave. Anyway, the scallops were really yummy :)~ And the breadcrumbs gives it that “deep fried” delicious taste, but it was healthy since I used olive oil to pan fry. Mmmmm!

      Ya! I bought them at the chiller section so all you need to do is stir them around in a pot of boiling water for 1-2 mins and it’s ready 🙂

    Oooh I did a project on Unilever’s Birds Eye before! We bought the fish fillet (i think) and cooked it for our lecturer to sample as part of our presentation. Wish seafood’s much cheaper here!
