Fried saimin, a favorite dish among many locals here in Hawaii, is available at many local eateries. But did you know you can make it at home very easily?
Ken and Hisae of Sun Noodles (who are the grandkids of the owner) recently made an appearance on Cooking Hawaiian Style and one of the things they made on the show was fried saimin, utilizing their very own saimin noodles. Following their recipe, here's how I made the platter above:
Boil 2 packages of Sun Noodle Brand Original Saimin for 2 1/2 minutes.
Drain noodles in a strainer, rinse well under running cold water, then rinse again in a pot of ice cold water. You want to make sure to remove all the flour and starch from the noodles.
Cut the ingredients. I like to use fishcake (one log), Spam lite (one can), and green onions. Other popular ingredients include cabbage, bean sprouts, char siu, sliced scrambled eggs.
Prepare the sauce: 1/2 package of dashi, 1 tbsp Aloha shoyu, 1 tbsp water, and 1/2 tbsp oyster sauce.
Stir fry ingredients (except green onions) with a tbsp of oil, and 1/2 package of dashi. Add noodles, sauce, and green onions and toss for a few minutes. Pau!
