Regular saimin is more like soupy noodles but fried saimin is dry with lots of adding. Let’s learn about the fried saimin recipe.
Hawaiian style fried noodles are always my favorite. The spice, the toppings, everything attracts me much. When I was young, my mother used to cook in a Hawaiian style. I seek that taste and that’s why I’m so obsessed with these items.
Fried saimin noodle recipe:
Preparing fried saimin doesn’t take much time. This cooking process gets easier if you cook it into three different parts. First of all, you need to cook the ramen noodles then prepare the ingredients, finally cook them together. Collecting and preparing all the ingredients, you have to start cooking.
- Japanese ramen noodles about 2 packets.
- Ramen seasoning packet about 2. These come along with the ramen packets.
- Coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage about 1 cup
- Shallot about 1 piece, sliced
- Small carrots about 2 pieces
- Scallions about 2
- Spam about .5 lb
- Kamaboko fish cake about 2 slices
- Instant dashi powder about 1 packet
- Soy sauce about 1 tbsp.
- Black pepper to taste
- Sea salt to taste
- Peanut oil about2 tbsp.
Step 1: In this step, I’m going to prepare all the ingredients correctly. I have washed the small carrots, onion, and cabbage. Then in a cutting board, I’m going to peel the carrots and cut them into very thin lined sticks. There is a cute name for this cut; Julienned sticks. After cutting the carrots, I have put them in a bowl. Now, I’m going to slice the onion in possible thin slices. The cabbage is being cut in the same way.
Step 2: I have the spam, kamaboko, and scallions left to cut. With a sharp knife, I’m going to cut the ham into cubes. Then, I’m cutting the kamaboko fish cake slices into thin slice. Lastly, I’m going to chop the scallions into bite-size.
Step 3: In a saucepan, I’m going to boil water to cook the ramen. Usually, I add some oil into the water so that the ramen doesn’t stick to another. When the water is boiling, then I pour the whole 2 packets of ramen just for 30 seconds. Then I transfer the ramen into a colander in order to let the ramen cool and there won’t be any water left.
Step 4: Now I’m going to pour vegetable oil a little bit in a large skillet over medium heat. After 2 minutes, I’m adding the sliced onions and carrots.
Step 5: When the onions are tender and carrots are halfway done, I’m adding the spam and cooking it on the heat until their outer part becomes crispy.
Step 6: In that skillet, I’m adding the sliced cabbage, sliced kamaboko, and the cooked ramen noodles and combine them very well with all the toppings.
Step 7: Lastly, I’m sprinkling on the ramen seasoning, dashi powder to add the flavor. When I’m removing the skillet from heat, I add a pinch of salt and black pepper as per my taste, giving the ramen a quick toss.
