Tom Yam Fried Mee Hoon

Compared to my mum who is a full time home affairs minister, I am a career woman with a family life. To manage both is definitely challenging. Sometimes I am torn apart on which is the priority. I work for pocket money to maintain myself and to buy the things I like without depending on my other half. I take care of everything at home because my other half takes his business very seriously.

While mum has the time to pound and grind ingredients for the dishes she cooks, I take short cuts. I stock up ready made paste for quick fix meals. Of course I like to do what she does. May be possible when I don't have to work from home. Otherwise, its the ready made paste like the tom yam paste for this fried mee hoon - a convenient tasty dish with seafood, chillies and aroma from kaffir lime leaves.

1/2 packet of mee hoon (soak to soften)
15 prawns (de-vein, but leave tail on)
2 small squids (sliced)
2 tablespoons of ready made tom yam paste
1 medium size onion (sliced/dized)
5-6  limau purut/kaffir lime leaves (shredded/sliced)
5 birds eye chillies (sliced)
1/4 cauliflower (cut into small florets)
4 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

Heat oil in a large wok.
When heated, put in the onion, prawns and squids. 
Stir and cook for 3 minutes,.
Add tom yam paste, cauliflower, mee hoon and salt.
Stir to combine all ingredients together.
(Note: if needed, sprinkle a bit of water while stirring to soften both - mee hoon and cauli).
Next add lime leaves and chillies.
Stir again for a couple of times and dish out.
