Mixed Seafood on Crispy Noodles (海鲜生面) is a Hong Kong/Cantonese-style dish which I really love, and it is my favourite zi char one-dish noodles meal.

In Singapore, we call it Sheng Mian (生面) which literally translates as “raw noodles”. It comprises of assorted food (usually seafood, vegetables and/or sliced meat) cooked in a savoury gravy which is then drizzled over a nest of crispy noodles.

You can make your own crispy noodle nest by deep-frying them, or you can, like me, take the short-cut of using ready-made crispy noodles. If you are doing the short-cut way, ensure that the noodles will be cooked (they are usually a little harder than the freshly deep-fried ones) by ladling generous amounts of freshly cooked hot gravy over the crispy noodles. Within seconds, the noodles will cook and soften slightly, while absorbing all the delicious flavours from the sauce.

    Hi there, do you think it’s possible to omit the wine?

    I am contemplating to do the freshly fried ones but that sounds like a lot of work. haha will look for this kind of ready made noodles.
