Clear Fish Noodle Soup

Past 2 weeks have been a little unmanageable, too many things happening at the same time. Next week, I will be moving to audreycooks.com and hopefully all of you will follow me there for more recipes from "somewhere in my kitchen". I have really miss posting regularly and I hope to make up for it soon.
Lately, it has been raining 'cats and dogs' in the afternoons and I though this is suppose to be dry season. Obviously I made the wrong choice to renovate my home during this time. Anyway, what's done cannot be undone, just have to wait it out!
Whenever it rains, I crave for soupy stuffs, wonder you guys feel the same? Today, 'clear fish noodle soup' seems to ignite a growl in my tummy.

  3. Add water and bring to boil for 15 minutes. Simmer for 30 minutes and leave to cool.

    Hi Teh See! welcome and do by all means cook your heart out!

  • while u were away, my friend's perut ikan came out and I couldn't leave u a msg. good now that u r back........soon

  • Yeah, it's raining everyday which makes me crave for stews and soupy things too! Congrats on the new site.

  • Congrats on your new domain. Looking forward to more cool dishes from you.

  • Penang also always heavy rains, so better cooked at home.

  • Hi, would love to try this fish soup sometimes. You are moving to another blogging platform ? Is it Wordpress ? Me stuck with Blogger.com...wonder if the old blogs in blogspot can be "migrated" with ease to Wordpress ?

  • Wonder if I could try this with any kind of fish fillets (frozen kind)...
    Looks so...oooo yummy.

  • Tigerfish, u may substitute with other fish fillets but I realise the frozen ones like dory etc will not be able add oomph to the dish. In other words, frozen fish is convenient to purchase but not as tasty as fresh fillets from sek pan, ma yaw etc.
