Hokkien Har Mee

Hokkien Har Mee (Hokkien/Fujian prawn noodles; 福建蝦麺) is served in Penang. It is a dish of egg noodles and rice noodles in a fragrant stock, which is made from both fresh shrimp and dried prawns, as well as pork or chicken. Last time, they used small cubes of fried pork fat added into the soup, but this is now less common due to health concerns. It is garnished with prawns, fish cake, leafy greens, pork ribs, squid, crisp deep-fried shallots, spring onions and fresh lime. The dish is served with sambal.
