Spicy Fried Noodles/Mee Goreng

Every since I saw this noodle dish at 3hungrytummies I’ve been thinking about it. Since coming back from Malaysian I’ve been craving for something from back home. I went to the Asian supermarket in Philly with my good friend Choy and gather all the necessary ingredients for a quick fix of my craving. So here is my version of the Mee Goreng. It was pretty similar to my previous Mee Goreng Mamak . I used the sambal that I made earlier to fry this.


8 oz of yellow noodles (1/2 packet) - wash
10 shrimps – peeled and deveined
1 small piece of fish cake - sliced
1 tomato – cut into small wedges
2 piece of fried tofu – cut into ½” cubes
A small bunch of mustard green – wash and cut into 1” length
2 shallots – sliced thinly
3 cloves garlic – chopped
¼ cup water


3 tbsp of sambal
2 tsp dark soy sauce
3 tbsp soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat up a wok, add in about 3 tbsp of olive oil. Sauté garlic and shallots until fragrant and lightly brown.
2. Add in shrimp, tofu, tomato and fish cake. Stir-fry for a minute, add in the sambal, and the rest of the seasonings. Mix well.
3. Add in the noodles, stir well. At this stage you can add a bit of water and the vegetables. Cook and stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes. Check seasonings.
4. Dish out and serve warm.

Adui Gert, balik tak sampai one month got craving already? It's good and lucky you that you're such a good cook. Nothing and no cravings that Gert can't fix!

wahh... this looks really good. I don't know how long I haven't had spicy food. Guess I need to start blending chili and keep in the freezer, so whenever I crave for spicy food, it will be handy.

I tried it and it´s soooo salty.. and I stopped eating it. . :( it looked great though....

Genevieve, in the recipe I only used 3 tbsp of soy sauce for the whole dish so it should not be too salty and the quantity of salt is to taste. It might be your sambal on the salty side.
