Recipe: Noodles Special by Chloe Giglio, Age 11


My mom makes this delicious noodle recipe that I love. You will have to cook several things, and then combine them all together in the end. It takes a lot of steps, but everything is worth the taste! Fortunately, she gave me the recipe and I am glad to share it with you.
First, you will need to cook the shrimp. Briefly saute it, because you do not want to overcook seafood. Add in salt, onion powder, and garlic powder to taste and other seasonings you can think of.
Then, boil the noodles. Take a medium-sized boiling pot and fill it halfway with water. Right after you put the noodles in, stir them around to make sure they don’t stick together.
Cook on high heat until the water starts to get really bubbly. Then, turn the temperature down to low and let the residual heat finish cooking the noodles. While they boil, cut an onion into 1/2-cm3 cubes. You will also need to cut the cilantro into pieces about half an inch long each. When the noodles become soft and cooked on the inside, they are ready to be rinsed in cold water in a strainer. Afterwards, put the strainer with the noodles in it back in the pot for the water to drain into.
After all of this has been completed, scramble the eggs. Scramble them in a well-oiled pan. Once you can see bubbles popping up on the eggs, turn the heat off. After they have been cooked, keep them in the pan and set aside.
Now, move the noodles to the big frying pan and put it on really low heat. Mix the noodles with sesame oil, light soy sauce, and dark soy sauce. Once you have finished that, mix in the eggs, shrimp, onions, and cilantro. Then add the seasonings in to taste and mix well. Now you have finished! Bon Appetit!
