Yesterday was Good Friday. So, for those who celebrating this religious days, they cannot eat meat. My domestic helper, Lorna cannot eat meat today. So, I dig dig dig my fridge, and I think I will cook this what I call clamy veggie noodles. OK. She said, cannot eat meat, but seafood OK. She cannot explain why to me too.
1. Some Noodles (豆签)， 1x Onion, Clams (fronzen).
2. Dried shrimp, soaked in the hot water for a while. Then, throw away the water, and squeeze dry it. This is to give something "meaty" to chew.
3. Cut 1 stalk of celery. Dice it. This will gives the crunchy chew to your noodles.
4. Boil a pot of water. Pinch two fingerful of sea salt, and some olive oil into the pot. Put the noodle in. Cook for 7-10 minutes. Use a retainer to hold the noodles. And rinse the noodles with cold water. Standby.
5. 2x Eggs. Fried it yellow and white with cooking oil. (In this picture, I used too much oil to fry. Because I decided to fry the eggs after I pour the oil in for the noodles. You don't need so much oil for eggs.) Put aside the egg, later we want to use it.
6. Clean the wok, pour in cooking oil. Fried the onions and dried shrimps.
7. Put everything in, the noodle, the clams, the egg, and stir fry it. Use some salty dark soya sauce (think) so to color it a bit.
8. Taste. If need to be more salty, pinch some salt. And there you go... a tasty fried clamy veggie noodles.
Of course, for the non-catholic at home, I also topped up with some steaks...
And how can we eat steak without wine... Let's open the fake Lafitte. HaHaHa
Happy Good Friday!
