There is something about claypot stewed noodles that is just so grounded, aromatic and inviting. The name itself evokes an impression of highly skilled, effortful cooking over hot coals until the smoky and salty aroma of sauce, ingredients and noodles permeate the entire place. Fortunately, modern technology has made this a much easier feat, and this recipe is tailored in such a way that almost anyone can make and enjoy this wonderful dish.
For those who do not have a claypot, fret not. A normal pot works just as well. The ingredients to this Claypot Seafood Noodles are so versatile, do not limit yourself to just these few.
How about using a variety of mixed seafood and shellfish? Or thick vermicelli instead that you will most certainly enjoy slurping up? A glug of rice wine, brandy or cognac will most definitely bring the dish up a notch. And for our more sinful friends, use some pork belly instead of chicken for an even more greasy and lip smacking mouthfeel. Spice lovers, don’t forget to have some cut chilli at the side. It pairs beautifully with the noodles. And for those who are on diet, you may want to run an extra kilometer or so before rewarding yourself with a plate of this goodness.
