How to make XO Sliced Fish Noodle Soup

I tried this at one of the hawker centre somewhere D2 place. It cost me $6. Really love the soup, it taste differently between rice noodle 粗米粉 and 意面 as the latter been fried before. With additional 1 tbsp of XO, the soup turns out great. Sweet and tasty.

  1. Marinate sliced fish with seasoning B for at least 30 minutes (I marinated them for one whole night to get the full flavour)

  2. Heat oil in wok. Fry ginger and fish until 50% cooked.

  3. Pour in water and bring to boil.

  4. Add in noodle, evaporated milk, cuttle fish and seasoning A. Cook for 3 minutes or until the noodle is getting soft.

  5. Add in vege and cook for 30 seconds.

  6. Remove from heat.

  7. Add in 1 tbsp of XO wine and stir well before serving. (this is optional)

note: the evaporated milk is used to get rid of the fishy smell, and make it tastier.
