Fried Bee Hoon

This is one of our favourite dish for gatherings or picnics or when I am too lazy to cook. It is easy to make and goes well with other side dishes like bake/fried chicken, fish balls, prawn/seafood fritters etc. There are many versions to make this, some like it savoury by adding dried shrimps, some like to add dark soya sauce or oyster sauce but for me, I like it simple and have lots of ingredients like veges, meat or seafood.


I love to have this with lots of pickled green chillies .. yummy You can add other seafood like squid, scallops or even replace the seafood with thin slices of beef.

1 packet bee hoon (400gm), soaked till soft
13 clove garlic
3 shallots
200gm prawns, de-shelled and deviened
100gm french beans, sliced thinly
cabbage/mustard green/bean sprouts
1 carrot, julienned
1 tbsp light soya sauce
salt & pepper
2-3 tbsp oil
100-200ml water

1. Season prawns with sugar and put aside
2. Blend garlic and shallots into paste
3. Heat oil in wok and once it is hot, pour the garlic/shallot paste
4. Add a bit of salt and stir fry till fragrant
5. Once fragrant, add prawns and cook till they turned pink
6. Push prawns aside and add carrots, french beans and vegetables
7. Add about 100ml of water and mix them well
8. Add few dashes of pepper and stir well
9. Drain bee hoon and put them into the wok
10.Stir gently as you don't want to break the noodles, add soya sauce and a bit more water if the noodles are too dry
11.Add salt to taste and continue stirring till all the items are well incorporated and the noodles are cooked
12.Serve hot with omelette strips and pickled green chilli
