Prawn Noodles In Clear Soup

People usually have some ad-hoc task to do while working, but I have a sudden crave for something during working hours. Like last Wednesday afternoon, I was dying for prawn noodles. So, I immediately "IM" hubby to go to the seaside nearby to buy some medium sized fresh prawns directly from fisherman. I'm fortunate enough to have a work from home hubby to carry out the special orders for me. :) Not too bad right? Eventually I'm the one who prepare delicious meal for him. Ok, let's back to prawn noodles recipe. This is a simple and yet satisfying meal. We just spend less than RM8 to savor 2 bowls of prawn noodles with 12 medium prawns each.

Prawns Noodle in Clear Soup
serves 2


2 pcs of organic wheat noodles
250gm medium size prawns (I have 24 prawns in total)
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
some choy sum flower
3 tbsp of sun flower oil


1 tbsp of oyster sauce
2 tbsp of light soy sauce
salt to taste (optional)


1. Peel off the shells from prawn, except the head and tail. Cut off the 2 antenna from each prawns. Get all the prawns de-veined and washed.

2. To prepare the noodle, just add the organic noodle (x2 pcs) to salted boiling water and cook for about 5 minutes until soft. Then, rinse in fresh water and pour onto bowls.

3. Heat some oil in a wok. Saute garlic till fragrant. Stir in the prawns and saute till the prawns are half cooked. Add the seasoning and continue to stir fry for a while.

4. Add 2 x 3/4 bowl of water. The bowl size is the one that you will use it to serve prawn noodles afterwards.

5. Leave the soup to boil. Add a pinch of salt to taste.

6. Add in choy sum. Pour the soup over the noodles.

7. Serve hot with bird's eye chili.
