Shrimp Noodles with Fish Balls and Lettuce (One Pot Meal)

In Rice and Noodle Dishes on December 5, 2010 at am

Thin, shrimp flavoured noodles come dried, in little bundles (1 or 2 per serving) and cook just as quickly as instant noodles, making them perfect for quick and delicious one pot meals.  See my recipe for shrimp noodles served in soup with pacific clams and Chinese broccoli here.

Shrimp Flavoured Noodles with Fish Balls and Lettuce Recipe

makes 1 serving

1 or 2 bunches of dried shrimp flavoured noodles

4 or 5 fish balls

a handful of lettuce (romaine lettuce is pictured above but you can use whatever you have on hand)

oyster sauce

ground white pepper (optional)

In a medium sized pot, bring 3 cups of cold water and the fish balls to a rolling boil over high heat.  Add the noodles and cover the pot with a lid until it returns to a rolling boil.  Then remove the lid, loosen the noodles with chopsticks, and let cook as per the package directions.  One to two minutes before the noodles are expected to be done, add the lettuce and cook until the noodles are done and the lettuce is wilted but still crisp.  Do not overcook the noodles or else they will expand and become soggy.  Drain and plate the noodles, fish balls and lettuce.  Drizzle with oyster sauce to taste and add dashes of white pepper to taste if using.  Serve and enjoy immediately.

  1. Wow your noodle with fish balls looks so yummy. I used to eat this kind of things everyday but it’s not availble here in India. I need to try this recipe 🙂
