Yellow Noodle Soup with Prawn

During one of those days that I ran out of ideas on what to cook, this will be it. :P

My parents used to make this using chicken and dried shrimps as the soup base.  So it's Noodle Soup with Chicken. :P  My husband hates dried shrimps so my recipe omits that. Instead, I use chicken bones, prawns shells, Choy Sum stem (since noone except me likes it) and sometimes with a few dried scallops.

I usually make the soup stock first and keep it hot in the thermal pot. When we are ready to eat, just blanch the noodle then add in the soup. Easy. :)

  • 400g Flat Yellow Noodles
  • a bunch of Choy Sum, cut into sections
  • 8-10 medium Prawns; depending on how many prawns you want to serve withthe noodles

Soup Stock:
  • 2 litre Water
  • 2 Chicken Carcass, chopped into 2
  • 2 clove Garlic, smashed

  • 1 tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
  • Salt to taste

How to do it:
  1. Saute the garlic with a little oil till fragrant.
  2. Blanch chicken carcass to remove scum.
  3. Add chicken carcass and garlic into a fresh pot of water.
  4. Bring to a boil.
  5. Add prawn and cook for 30 seconds.
  6. Remove and shell the prawns.
  7. Set the prawns aside and return the prawn heads and shells to the pot.
  8. Continue to simmer for at least an hour.
  9. Add in the choy sum stalks if you like.
  10. Cook till stalks have softened.
  11. Drain the soup stock.
  12. Add seasonings to taste.
  13. Keep in hot in a thermal pot if necessary.
  14. When ready to eat, boil a pot of water.
  15. Grab some noodles and blanch in boiling water.
  16. Drain the noodles.
  17. Place some choy sum in a bowl then pour the blanched noodle over.
  18. Top with previously cooked prawns.
  19. Pour over hot soup stock and serve.
