My dear readers,
I have been selected to take part in the Philips noodle challenge!
Well, Philips has basically picked a group of bloggers and challenged us to create an original dish using the Philips Avance Noodle Maker AND a secret ingredient – LEMON!
It was all going very well until I saw “LEMON”. Oh man. That is definitely not an easy ingredient.
After thinking and pondering for a week, I finally decided to make this dish – basically it is a stir-fried tom yum seafood noodle dish that is made with lemon noodles.
What started as an experiment ended up with a plate of noodles that was so freaking good, I wanted to eat the entire bowl of noodles all by myself!
It was so, so worth the wait.
If you’d like to try making this, here’s how!
First, make the noodles. I added an egg to the measuring cup with lemon juice and topped this up with water.
The flour was added into the noodle maker, before I added the liquid. To see step-by-step photos on how to make noodles using the Philips Avance Noodle Maker, see here.
7 minutes later, I had a batch of lemon noodles all ready to be cooked. Before frying the noodles with the tom yum paste and other ingredients, blanch the noodles in boiling water for 3 minutes before draining them.
In a hot wok, add vegetable oil and sliced red onions. Stir fry this for 2 minutes, until the onions have softened, then add lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves.
Add tom yum paste and stir to mix.
Add the prawns, squid, fish cake and mushrooms. Give everything a stir to mix.
Then add prawn broth. For a step-by-step guide on how to make the prawn broth, see here.
Add the noodles and fry for about 2 minutes so that the noodles can absorb the flavors.
I topped the noodles with sliced chili and fried shallots.
And there you have it – a delicious plate of seafood tom yum noodles.
I tell you, this is oh-so-good. Am I repeating myself? Sorry.. but it is THAT good!
I wish I could make this for you to try.
Since I can’t make this for so many people, I guess the next best thing is to host a giveaway!
