Stir Fried Seafood Noodles
When Filipinos cook stir fried noodles the main ingredient would be either pork or chicken and we rarely use seafood specially fish, might be because we are used to eating our seafood as it is and rarely filleted, so we barely see fish fillets in supermarkets and if you want one you have to ask for it or fillet it on your own. But when I worked in Hong Kong I was exposed to noodle dishes that used seafood and fish as their main ingredients and they taste really good so good I there was one instance I ordered them almost every day for a week, I like noodles and I really love seafood and combining them together would be heaven. So this dish will be similar to the Filipino dish called pancit canton but using seafood instead of the traditional chicken or pork.
