Delicious One-Pot Fried Mi Sua

Delicious One-Pot Fried Mi Sua

Today’s recipe is a simple one-pot affair with soft and chewy Mi Sua, also known as Wheat Vermicelli. It’s less of a mess, delicious and very fast to make. Add tender chicken, sweet prawns and squid, and you have a super flavourful dish.

This recipe is as filling as it is delicious! Serves 6 adults.

Ingredients

All the ingredients needed for Fried Mi Sua in various plates and bowls.

Fried Mi Sua is the main star of this dish. Although it’s soft and silky in a soup, it takes on a tender and springy texture when stir-fried.

Hong Kong choy sum and cabbage are part of the leafy, soft vegetables. They add a natural sweetness to the dish. Bok choy or kailan works extremely well here too.

For the meat, I used many types – feel free to reduce as preferred. Chicken meat adds its sweetness; while prawns and squid give their rich, umami flavour to the noodles.

The other ingredients are the seasonings – they add flavour and fragrance to an appetising meal. Feel free to add or reduce according to taste and preference.

Steps 1 to 4: Preparing the ingredients.
  1. Marinate the chicken, squid and prawns with 1/3 of the salt each.
  2. Cut the choy sum stems into half. Separate from the choy sum leaves.

Tips

  • Rub salt on the meat and seafood in two batches for even marination.
  • Vegetable stems are thicker and take longer to cook. Cut them in half to reduce the cooking time.
  • Once the Mi Sua is soaked, drain the water so it does not become too soft. Loosen it before adding it to the pan so that it can be easily mixed.
  • Serve with some pickled green chillies or sliced chillies in soy sauce.

Storage Instructions

This One Pot Mi Sua is best consumed immediately after cooking for its rich taste and springy texture.

Although it can be kept overnight in the fridge in an airtight container, I don’t personally recommend it as the Mi Sua’s texture will be lost after it is reheated.

For this same reason, it’s also not recommended to freeze.

Let’s Eat

Tender, springy and so tasty. The chicken is juicy, while the prawns and squid are cooked perfectly. The Mi Sua absorbed their flavours, and the vegetables lend a satisfying crunch to the texture. So delicious!
