My husband first introduced me to Singapore fried noodles while dining out with his family. It’s hands down his favourite asian dish from his childhood. He refers to it lovingly as “fried yellow stuff”. If you’ve never had it, it is vermicelli rice noodles fried with shrimp and pork. It’s gets it’s distinct yellow colour from the curry powder. From what I know Singapore fried noodles is not actually a traditional Singaporean dish. It’s most popular in hong-kong and in western Chinese restaurants!
Over Christmas my husbands mom made us a big dish of traditional Singapore fried noodles and since then I wanted to make a healthy no-guilt version of this dish. While I’m sure his mom’s version will always be my husband’s favourite, I wanted to recreate a version that we could easily have as a weeknight meal. Of course the best way to make a healthy noodle dish is to replace the noodles with spiralized veggies.
