We've been craving more "Mee Siam" ever since I bought some takeaway for lunch from Madam Kwong's Kitchen a couple of weeks ago. Mee Siam ("Siamese noodles") is a tangy/spicy flavoured noodle dish. I prefer the dry version but there is a version with a thick gravy. This cheats version of dry Mee Siam can be made in minutes!
|Halve some hard boil eggs and let it cool - we had the eggs under our retro style green mesh food saver|
|Defrost the Mee Siam paste which is made of ground onions, chilli, dried shrimps, shrimp paste and seasoning. The shrimps make it a bit pungent but once cooked it has a mild flavour|
|Let's begin! Add a little oil to the work and stir fry some shelled, devein prawns|
|Toss in match stick sized Chinese chives, and add the Mee Siam paste|
|Toss in rice vermicelli noodles and bean shoots and mix until the noodles are covered in the sauce.|
