Prawn ribs noodle soup is a Singapore local dish. It’s also one of my husband’s favourite ones. The key of this dish is broth.
Main ingredients are ribs, Prawns, and noodles.
1. Remove the shell and heads of Prawns. Don’t thrown them away.
3. Add in prawn heads and shell. Stir fry till red.
4. Pour in hot water around 1 liter. Add in ribs, star anise, 1 tsp ground clove, 1 tsp white pepper powder, around 10g rock sugar, 1 tsp dark soy sauce and 1 tsp light soy sauce. Stir a bit. Bring to boil. Then turn to low heat and simmer for 2-3 hours. Season with salt.
6. Take all the shell out. And they can be discarded. Scald Prawns in the broth for 3 mins. And set aside with ribs.
Here is the Hokkien noodles I used. But only half pack is enough for two people.
