Herbal Fish Noodles

I got this recipe from Ellena blog. I cooked for my lunch. Ellena uses mee sua, i did not have, so i added yellow noodles instead. Its very nice & the herbal taste is quite strong. Tks Ellena for sharing with us your herbal Fish Noodles recipe.

Ingredients: (Serves 2)
150g of ShengYu Slices (生鱼片)
3 Bundles of Mee Suah (面线)

1 Tablespoon Wolfberries (枸杞子)600ml - 750ml Water
2 Soft Boiled Eggs
10g of Shredded Ginger

1. Clean and wash the spare ribs then blanched in boiling water for about 5 minutes, rinse, clean and set aside for later use.

3. Bring water to boil in a stockpot, add in spare ribs, rinse herbs and half of the wolfberries.
4. Lower the heat and let it simmer over low heat for about 20 – 30 minutes until the spare ribs are tender.
