Fried Hokkian Mee Hoon (Rice Vermicelli)

Beside Hokkian noodles, i also like to cook this Hokkian Mee Hoon (rice vermicelli) especially to serve during lunch time, quick and easy. And this Hokkian Mee Hoon is one of the noodle that must have in a Birthday party, and also very nice if serve with chicken curry.

Fried Hokkian Mee Hoon (Rice Vermicelli)

Ingredients
400g (1 packet) Mee Hoon/Rice Vermicelli, soaked and drained
200g cabbage, shredded (you may replace with Choy Sum (Mustard Green)
300g bean sprouts, washed and drained
1 medium carrot, shredded
2pcs fish cake, sliced
200g fresh shrimps

4 shallots, peeled and coarsely chopped
3 cloves of garlic, peeled and coarsely chopped

450ml water (you may adjust according to your type/brand of Rice Vermicelli)

Seasonings
2tbsp light soy sauce
1tbsp dark soy sauce
1tbsp sugar
2tsp salt or to taste
A dash of white pepper powder

Garnishing- fried shallots

Method:-
1. Heat a wok over high flame, sauté chopped garlic and shallots golden brown.
2. Add in prawn and fish cake stir fry for a while.
3. Add in water, cabbage and carrot, cook till water boiled. Add in seasonings.
4. Toss in the rice vermicelli and bean sprouts, quickly stir fry and simmer till all ingredients are cooked and mix well.
5. Garnish with fried shallots, serve warm.

My note: do not soak rice vermicelli in hot water, just soak in normal tap water till soften (not too long, few minutes). The important step here is to simmer the rice vermicelli in seasoning water till rice vermicelli soak all the seasoning, resulted a flavourful of fried rice vermicelli. Usually I like to add cabbage than choy sum (mustard green) as cabbage tasted sweet and crispy, while choy sum a bit too hard for kid to chew once cooked.

Nice beehoon...I can never fry it this dry, it'll stick to the wok making it hard to wash!

Hi Sonia, This dish looks so awesome. Haven't tried it before though. Thank you for sharing.

Nice nice. I like to eat fried bee hoon. My home-cooked fried mee hoon is also very similar to this but I never know that this is called hokkian fried mee hoon.

For the seasoning I normally added oyster sausce as well.

Fried bee hoon and curry chicken certainly brings back great memories :)
Great looking bee hoon!

hi, thanks to your tips, i didnt know we can't soak mee hoon in hot water, i did that once thinking the mee hoon can cook faster that way, but it turned out very soggy and the mee hoon all broken up too...

Mmm....delicious. I'm real bad in cooking mee hoon. Have to learn from you. I'm only good in cooking noodles. I always serve it with curry so that people don't complain about my mee hoon...hehe.

My mom used to fried this type of mee hoon for parties and gatherings too but she make it plain without all the meat as we will be eating it with curry.
