WATCH: How To Cook Misua Seafood Noodles

Misua never looked so elegant or tasted so delicious.


If you've never had misua in your noodle soup before, this is the dish to try.


Misua is a Chinese egg noodle, and the classic dish that uses it is a soup dish, where the misua noodles swim in a clear, ginger soup with chunks of pork. In this recipe, however, the misua is the star with seafood adding its flavor to the broth. What's really different is that the misua absorbs all the wonderful broth it's cooked in, creating incredibly flavorful noodles that you'll eat rather than slurp.
