The name doesn’t sound inspiring (yucky, in fact), but I can assure you, it tastes amazing. It is actually Malaysian street food, if I am not mistaken.  I had it a few times when I lived in Malaysia.

So how did I come to be making this?  It started when I posted a photo of the fish bites I made on Facebook, with the comment that my daughter doesn’t want to eat it.

One of my friends suggested I made milky fish noodles with the uneaten fish. So here  it is.

The recipe (my version):

Salmon pieces (you can use any fish)


2 tbsp brandy

3 tbsp flour

Marinade the salmon pieces and leave for an hour or so. Add the flour and fry until crispy. Whilst the salmon is marinating, make the soup. Note: I did not have fish stock in my freezer, so I used chicken stock.

Herbs, as shown above – coriander root, lime leaves, ginger (important ingredient), 2 tomatoes.

4 chicken stock

2 cups milk

1 tbsp fish sauce

1 tsp sugar

Boil everything up. Season to taste. Just before serving, add some brandy to the soup.

Precook some noodles (I use linguine #10, as we do not eat rice noodles). Blanch some greens. Assemble the dish with the noodles, veggies and fish. Garnish with coriander and chopped red chilies. And here you go, a very yummy dish indeed.
