Japanese Black Pepper Fried Udon with Seafood

Hi~~ i am back again, recently i start really simple cooking without much new recipes because i have to cook for 2 sessions everyday. Hubby used to eat overnight food, but i do not like this idea, so i decided to prepare him the lunch box every morning before he goes to work. So, with limited time in the morning, i have only about 15-20 minutes for the entire session. Most of the time i make it just so simple, eg stir fry vegetables, fried eggs, just to fulfill the basic nutrients for the day. That’s nothing much i can blog about it.

Last night, i decided to make noodles instead of preparing regular rice and dishes. Since i have seafood and some mixture of fish balls in the freezer, here i get the inspiration that i should make something between seafood and noodle. Udon, is the popular type of noodle for Japanese cuisine with the smooth and chewy textures. But i am not going to make those traditional Ramen with udon, Yencooking always come up with fusion style, haha!

Ingredients:

Udon * 2 packs

Shrimps * 7-8 pcs (cut into cubes) ** Marinate with some salt/ black pepper & coating with frying powder

Frozen Fish balls * 7-8 pcs (cut into cubes)

Nai pa * half bowl (cut into slices)

Carrots * 1/4 bowl (cut into slices)

Garlic * 2 cloves (chop finely)

Seasoning:

Oyster Sauce * 3 tbsp

Light soy sauce * 2 tbsp (i used reduce sodium)

Dark soy sauce * 1 1/2 tbsp

black pepper * to taste (i like to have more kick, so i add quite a lot on that)

Sesame Oil * 1 tsp

Water * 4 tbsp

 

How to cook:

  1. First, boil the udon become soft in a pot with water. Add some cooking oil into it to prevent it become sticky. Drain it and set aside for next step.
  2. Heat the wok with cooking oil, stir fry the marinated shrimps until 90% cook. and then set aside.
  3. Mix all the seasoning into a bowl and prepare for next step.
  4. Heat up the wok, add in cooking oil and garlic, stir fry until fragrance. Then add in the carrot and Nai pa slices, stir fry evenly until soften.
  5. Add in the udon, mix well with the ingredients in #4.
  6. Add in the seasoning ingredients #3, stir well with all the other ingredients.
  7. Add in the fish balls and shrimps at the end.
  8. Ready to serve and i had sprinkle some Japanese seaweed seasoning on top to make it yummier! Also, to add the green scallion if you like it!
