Leftover fish fillet in noodles


If you can find dried noodles in your favourite supermarket, better stock up for a rainy day. I have found these noodles to be the perfect snack item, and although it will take a bit longer to prepare (because you have to prep up the rest of the ingredients), it won't really take that long and the result is a dish with significantly reduced salt and preservative content.

(By the way, the fish fillet served here is considerably bigger than those you see in boxes sold in the supermarket, so it's really a waste to just throw it away).

Plus, you can use the noodles with a variety of ingredients! For instance, we have a couple of fish fillets left from Fish n Chips night, and when it goes cold it's no longer that yummy (unless you heat it up in the oven; the microwave does not do a good job of it).

So what we have here is a yummy noodle treat with leftover fish fillet as a main ingredient!



What you need:
2 pcs leftover fish fillet
2 rolls dried noodls
3-4 cups water to boil the noodles in
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
cooking oil
1 medium carrot, chopped
some cabbage, chopped
some chopped mushrooms would also be great, but we've run out.
2 tsp tomato paste (I was actually looking for tomato sauce but this is what I have in the pantry)
salt and pepper to taste
chopped spring onion and celery, optional

Direction:

Tear up the fish fillet into flakes.
Start getting the water to boil on a separate pot.
Heat up the cooking oil on a frying pan over medium heat.
Saute garlic, then onion.
Add in fish fillet and mix. Cook for about 5 minutes.
By this time the water should be boiling. Place dried noodles in the pot and cook for 3 minutes.
In the frying pan, Add tomato paste and mix until spread over.
Add carrots (and mushrooms and celery if you have) and mix. Lower heat.
With 3 minutes done for the noodles, take these out of the water and into the frying pan.
Mix together, and add salt and pepper to taste.

Top with a bit of chopped spring onion (optional). Serve hot.

If you did not throw away the hot water where the noodles were cooked in, you can add it to a bowl of noodles, add a bit of fish sauce to adjust the taste, and voila! Noodle soup!
