If you loved the flavour/fragrance of dried shrimps, you must try this. Looks can be deceiving as it looks like ordinary egg noodles.

This is easier version. The more complicated one is to use fresh Prawns shells, deep fried till very dry and crispy, grounded into powder and added to the flour.




I just tossed it with Sesame oil after its cooked in water.


Ingredients
200g Plain Flour
50g Dried Shrimps
100ml water
1 tbsp corn oil
1 tsp salt

tapioca flour for dusting

Method
1. Dry fry dried shrimps till fragant.
2. Ground in a food processor till powdery form


3. Add flour,water and salt to it and mix till it forms into a dough.
4. Break into smaller portions to run thru the machine until it comes out smooth.
5. Run it thru the cutters.
6. dust with Tapioca flour to prevent it from sticking together.
7. Cook as per your recipe preferred.

Gosh Gina you are so creative :o I think I'm gonna like this noodle as I'm a huge prawn lover.

As for the grounded prawn shells, they reminded me of this Japanese chef on a cooking show that I saw. He placed the fresh prawn shells on a plate and microwaved it for a few minutes until it is brittle dry, and he pounded the shells into powder form. Then he just mix the powdered prawn shells with salt and use it as a side dipping for his Tempuras. Looks yummy Very Happy

Gina, I know that this is an old post but I made the dried shrimp noodles yesterday using very tiny orange dried shrimps and it came out very good.....tasty, nice orange color and aromatic. I do have a question though....to make chewy noodles....what must one do? Knead longer? use different flour? run the dough thru the past machine more times? secret ingrdient? Thanks !

asan

to make it chewy, use a low gluten flour. I think in USA, that would be the Softasilk flour.

In Singapore, its called the Top Flour or Cake Flour. That's low gluten flour.

all other ingredients is the same. When you make the dough, important to note is :

Leave it alone for 30 mins.

Then run it thru the pasta machine. This is how I cheated and made La Mian with a pasta machine..the noodle stretch to super lengths and was light and chewy!

That's my secret.
