I remember I had posted this earlier in my blog but I just could not locate the post from my archive. Anyway, good thing is meant to be shared. So here I am introducing this quick one-pot meal to you (again if I had done it before).
This is Taiwan style mee suah soup so the mee suah (flour vermicelli) is supposed to cook till thickened and the soup is more paste like.
I used organic mee suah this time. Organic mee suah is less salty so I added more seasonings. If you are using regular mee suah, very likely that you just need dash of sugar and light soy sauce for the seasonings.
If you like spicy and sour dish, give this a try. I am sure you won’t regret. Strongly recommended!!
Sardine Mee Suah
Ingredients: (for serving of 2)
2 portions mee suah (flour vermicelli)
1 small canned sardine (I used Ayam brand)
3 chili padi (depending on your own liking)
1 onion (cut into strips)
2 tomatoes (cut into wedges)
Tomato sauce & chili sauce (Maggie or other brands)
Seasonings to taste (light soy sauce, salt, sugar, dash of sesame oil)
1) Boil 3 cups of water. Add onion, tomatoes and chili padi when the water starts boiling.
2) Remove sardine from can (keep the sauce), remove the bones (omit this step if you are eating the bones).
3) Add sardine and sauce from can to the soup when the onion and tomato become soft. Add extra tomato sauce and chili sauce. Simmer for a while.
4) Add mee suah and cook till slightly thickened, add seasonings. Dish up, add some line juice and serve immediately.
