My mother brought back some Otak-otak (is a cake made of fish meat and spices) for me from Muar. The first thing I want to cook with this Otak-otak is to use it to stir fry with noodles which I seen in Ah Xian food show. I have never had Otak-otak with noodles, sound interesting !
I was planned to pan fry the Otak-otak first (try to slice it while it is still frozen form) before adding into noodles (or you may just steamed it first then slice) , but I was running out of time as my son was rushing to school, so I simply add in the raw Otak-otak. Thus it broken up into small bites after stir fried, so it add extra flavours to the noodles.
