Simple Economic Fried Bihoon 经济炒米粉

Economic fried bihoon, or simple stir fried rice vermicelli is a typical breakfast for Malaysian and Singaporean Chinese. For this recipe, I used the simple ingredients such as cabbage, crabstick, egg and some spring onion (whatever can be found in my fridge) to make my good and satisfying breakfast. Although the fried bihoon looks uninteresting, it is really delicious with a fiery hot chili paste especially the shredded cabbage which lends a “crunchy” texture and a refreshing taste to the dish.

Ingredients:
1/2 packet bihoon/rice vermicelli (about 100 gm)
2-3 cloves garlic (chopped)
1 handful of shredded cabbage
2 stalks spring onion (cut into sections)
2-3 crabstick (cut into cubes)
1 egg (lightly beaten)

Seasonings:
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp dark soy sauce
50 ml water
1 tbsp oyster sauce
Dashes of white pepper powder

Directions:
1.    Boil a pot of water, add in 1 tbsp of oil and a pinch of salt, cook bihoon till soft. Drain and set aside in a covered container.
2.   Combine all seasoning ingredients in a bowl, set aside.
3.   Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan, pan-fry egg till both sides are brown. Dish out, cut into strips and set aside.
4.   Heat 2-3 tbsp of oil in the same pan, saute garlic till aromatic, add shredded cabbage and stir-fry 2-3 minutes till half done. Add in cooked bihoon, then followed by seasoning mixture, continuously stir-fry bihoon till well blended. Cover and let the bihoon simmer for 1-2 minutes until fully cooked through and no longer wet.
5.   Off the heat, mix in spring onion, crabstick and shredded fried egg.
6.   Dish out to serving platter and serve hot.

Fried Salmon Belly Mee Hoon Soup (without milk) , 炸三文鱼腩 米粉汤 (无淡奶)

A very simple and humble noodle dish where rice noodles are served with slices of fried fish fillet and the delicious broth flavored with salted mustard greens. Normally, evaporated milk is added to the broth so that the overall appearance of the noodle will be milky white and creamy. But, I have omitted the evaporated milk as I prefer clear soup … very very Chinese style.

Ingredients:

A bundle of  mee hoon/rice vermicelli (soaked till soft, drained)
A bundle of bok choy (cut into half)
4-5 ginger slices
500-600 ml chicken broth
1 tomato (wedged)
50 gm salted mustard greens (cut into small chunks)
3-4 cloves garlic (chopped, sauteed)
2-3 tbsp cornstarch (for coating)
Cilantro (chopped, for garnishing)

Marinades:
2 tbsp soy sauce
A dash of white pepper
1 tbsp rice wine
1 tsp sesame oil

Seasonings:
Salt (to taste)

Directions:
1.    In a bowl, add fish fillet and all marinade ingredients, combine well and set aside to marinade for 30 minutes.
2.   In a large pot, add chicken broth, ginger slices, salted mustard greens, tomato wedges and bring to a boil, then simmer over low heat for 20-30 minutes. Season to your liking with salt, set aside.
3.   Heat a wok with 2 tbsp, saute the chopped garlic till golden brown, set aside.
4.   Coat the fish fillet with corn flour, and shallow fry till golden brown, set aside.
5.   Reboil the broth, add bok choy and continue to boil for 10 minutes, then add mee hoon and cook for 1-2 minutes. Off the heat.
6.   Dish out the mee hoon soup to serving bowl, garnish with fried fish fillets, garlic oil and cilantro, serve with sliced chili and soy sauce.
