Any Filipino party would be incomplete without the appearance of this noodle dish! Seafood Pancit Bihon Guisado, a Filipino style stir fried noodle dish made with bihon noodles (cornstarch sticks or rice noodles) cooked with a variety of seafood and vegetables.
One of the Filipino noodle dishes that I am quite intimidate to prepare was this Bihon Guisado, the main reason is that when I tried to make them before when I was a child it was always a failure. When I cook them before the result is either too dry, too wet or overcooked, I never get the hang of cooking them so I stopped. Many years later, I met my wife and this is one of the best noodle dishes she prepares at home. I usually observe her as she cooks this dish and it is not that hard at all especially when you use the brand called Super Q (not a promotion by the way, I just love this brand). The instructions at the back of this dried noodle are quite simple, so for 1 piece of noodle all you need is 500 ml of water, if you follow that, it’s impossible to fail on it. Since then, I never used any brand apart from that, the results are just consistent every time.
Today I am teaching my daughter to cook the dish I was scared of cooking when I was young and this is the result of that tutorial. The photo above is the dish she prepared and yes, it looks perfect for a first timer, do you agree?
