Stir Fry Instant Noodles with Sardines

Ever tried frying noodles with canned sardines?  This recipe is from my hubby and he's the cook for this yummy noodles.   His and my favourite noodle at one time.  We stopped cooking this noodle when we stopped buying canned food but we do miss this noodle. Here is our recent indulgence of this noodle with basil leaves and shredded zuchini. Got the basil leaves free from my neighbour's garden and zuchini is cheap this days.
You can cook this noodle spicy or non-spicy according to your preference.  You can also make it dry or with a little gravy and can garnish it with mint leaves or basil leaves.
However, for better taste, I recommend that this noodles must be cooked with good quality canned sardines.
Verdict - yummylicious stir fry instant noodles.
[serves 3]
3 pieces of instant noodles of your choice [blanch in hot water for 1-2 minutes, drain]
1 can sardine in tomato sauce [230 gm]
1/2 tbsp chilli boh [for spicy version]
1 big onion - peeled and chopped
1-2 pips garlic - chopped
2-3 small chillies - chopped
some basil leaves or mint leaves
some shredded zuchini or cucumber
3 limau kasturi - halved
salt and pepper to taste
1-2 tbsp cooking oil
1/2 cup of water
  1. Separate sardines from sauce.  Remove the fish bones if you like.
  2. Heat oil in wok, pan fry the sardines, then saute garlic and onions until aromatic. Add in chilli boh [if using] or chilli padi. Stir fry to mix well.
  3. Add in the sauce and seasoning to taste.  Bring to boil then add in the noodles.  Stir to combine noodles with all the ingredients until noodles are cooked and gravy reduced.
  4. Add in the basil leaves, stir to mix well.
  5. Dish up to serve and garnish with zuchini and lime kasturi.

Hi Kimmy! I haven't eaten instant noodles for a long time. I suppose once in a while indulgence is ok. I don't really like sardines and I guess I can use other ingredients. The addition of basil is good, gives nice appetizing fragrance.

Thanks Victoria, should say I'm getting lazy trying to make the best with least ingredients. This noodle is yummy.

Hi Phong Hong, me too don't take too much of instant noodles but they are really handy when you aren't going marketing. Maybe you can use mackerel or is it that you don't like the sauce?

Kimmy said...

Sorry Jozelyn, maybe you have to KIV until you have recovered.

Hi Amy, do try. It is easy and you can choose between spicy and non-spicy.
