We have some instant noodles in the pantry. We don’t eat them often, but I thought in a pandemic, when you don’t want to go shopping any more than necessary, they will come in handy. This afternoon I decided to try jazzing them up a little for dinner.
I picked a spring onion and some basil from the garden and found a hot pepper in the fridge. These hot peppers are cayennes – just the perfect spiciness to be sliced up raw.
We have a bag of shrimps in the freezer. I took the shells and tails off several of them, seasoned them with cayenne and garlic, then sauteed them up. They only take a couple minutes to cook.
We usually have some hard-boiled eggs in the fridge (in our case hard-steamed eggs). There was one left so I sliced it up. I’ll have to steam up more tomorrow.
Here it is after cooking the instant noodles and assembling….
I finished it off with a squirt of hoisin sauce, just because. Very tasty.
