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.
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 rolls dried noodls
3-4 cups water to boil the noodles in
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
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
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!
