Seafood Yee Mee – 伊麵

One of the favourite dishes during Chinese New Year is the get-together steamboat! It’s simple to prepare and great for bonding. It also has numerous meats and seafoods, vegetables, fishballs, etc. Sometimes, there are little bits and bobs of leftovers, which can be used to create a tasty new dish instead of being thrown away!

Seafood Noodles is a great idea to make good use of leftover steamboat ingredients. It’s super easy to whip up in a jiffy and absolutely delicious. You don’t need to spend extra money to buy the ingredients. All you have to do is mince some garlic and shallots, slice some ginger and use whatever noodles you have at home! We used dried e-fu noodles as that was what we had in our kitchen!

Did you know that in 2015, Singapore generated 786 million kg of food waste? That’s two bowls of food waste generated per person, per day. Repurposing leftover ingredients into new dishes is a great way to reduce food wastage and save money. Why not start doing so during this festive season?
