Shrimp & Chicken Yakisoba (Japanese Stir-fried Noodles)

I like stir-fried noodles, they’re easy to make and delicious.  I can add in lots of veggies like cabbage or pechay the kids don’t mind because they blend well with the noodles.

Yakisoba is much like pancit bihon and pancit canton, Filipino noodle dishes that also originated from China.   I’ve no idea how to make it until  after picking up a pack of  Yakisoba noodles from the Japanese and Korean section of my favorite grocery store. The noodles are pre-cooked perfect for in-a-hurry-because-you’re-so-hungry-but-didn’t-want-unhealthy-fastf00d-for-dinner kind of days.

It also has an instruction on how to prepare it so I just worked my way from there. I know how to cook pancit and pasta so I figured this is not so different. The recipe that I’m sharing here today is the same one I made the first time- with shrimp and chicken  leftovers, I used one of the seasoning packets that came with it then I just added some soy sauce, mirin and I used sesame oil.

It came out delicious!  I also added some Japanese rice topping to add more yum to it!

I’ve no idea how close my yakisoba taste like to the real thing but hey, the noodles are from Japan and so is the topping and the soy sauce, the mirin so I think I’m pretty close huh?! ;P

Happy Cooking! 🙂

I make it often and each time, it’s a little different from the last. I’ve tried all veggies only, sometimes with just chicken or pork and I’ve try it with ham too. It’s really a good dish to make use of your left-over roast chicken, pork  or beef.

This is really easy and fast. Healthy "fast-food" 🙂 Adjust seasoning according to your taste. I don't really measure my seasoning, just start with small quantity then build-up from there if it is not to your liking.

Extracting the flavour from the shrimp head is an extra step but it is worth it.

God Bless! 🙂
