Penang Hokkien Mee

June 4, 2022


Use a tiny food processor to grind the chili paste components into a smooth paste. Cooking oil should be heated in a wok. Five minutes in a wok with the chili paste. Toss everything together and set aside.

Cook the shrimp topping in a little oil in the same unwashed wok. Add a little sugar, salt, and chili paste to taste. The shrimp should have a faint burnt flavor from pan frying. Let them cool completely before slicing in half.

Bring 15 cups of water to a boil in a large pot. Soak all of the shrimp heads and shells in the stock for at least 2 hours until it turns murky and tastes very prawny.

Transfer the stock to a new pot by straining it through a strainer. The shrimp heads and shells should be thrown away. Remove and discard the orange “foam” that has risen to the surface of the stock during cooking.

Add half of the chili paste to the boiling stock. If you prefer your food spicier, you can add extra chili paste.

Boil the pork ribs for another 1-1.5 hours, until they are tender and cooked through, before removing them from the pot.

To taste, incorporate rock sugar and salt.

Mix yellow noodles and rice vermicelli with water convolvulus and bean sprouts in a serving bowl before serving. Pour boiling soup over the top. Pork ribs can be included if requested. Sprinkle shallot crisps on top of the pork meat, shrimp, and egg quarters.

Serve right now with additional chili paste, as desired, and enjoy!
