Homecooked Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee

In Food from Home on April 30, 2011 at 10:27

Fried Hokkien prawn mee (or noodles) is a uniquely Singaporean culinary invention by southern Chinese immigrants, specifically, the Hokkiens.

The main ingredients are round, yellow Hokkien noodles, bee hoon (to lighten the heavy starchiness of the noodles), beansprout, egg, squid, and of course, prawn.

C had a major craving for this and the hunt to get all the ingredients required began … we needed prawns to cook the required stock, fresh pork belly for flavor, squid and beansprouts for the veggie factor. Eggs that we have at home.

Managed to get everything and cook this in 2.5hrs … yay achievement

  1. mmmm this looks delicious!and very efficient, 2.5 h to do everything, ingredient search included 😉

  2. i love this dish too! where can I buy the noodles here in Dubai? would love to make some at home.

    • You can get the noodles from the chinese supermarkets in international city china cluster A. Hope this helps

      • i always get confused in the noodle aisle b/c there are so many! i have ten different kinds of “mein” in my cupboard and I don’t think any of them are the Hokkien ones.

        if you have a photo of the label, can you email it to me (if it’s not too much trouble).

      • Im sorry I threw the package out but Im sure you can use the yellow noodles for this …
        If its the dried type you might need to boil it 1st … Hope this helps
