Asian inspired noodles

My inspiration for recipes mostly comes from cooking shows on television or from memories. After i saw the fifth episode of de Wilde keuken, all I could think of were recipes with noodles. This is one of my three noodle creations.

Ingredients:
1 bok choy
1 chili pepper
2 sticks of lemon grass
1 bag mixed sea fruits (shrimps, mussels, squid, etc.)
30g creamed coconut
2 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon fermented fish sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon oil
noodles

Clip the stalks from the bok choy. Tear the green leafs from the stems and set them aside. Chop up the stalks and wash them. Finely chop the leafs and wash those too.

Finely chop the chili pepper, lemon grass and garlic. Puree them with a pestle and mortar, then add soy sauce, fish sauce, lime juice and stir it through. Grate the creamed coconut on a course grater.

Put a wok on the stove and wait until it is hot. Meanwhile bring 2l water to the boil in a big pot.

Stirfry the chili/lime grass mixture in some oil. After 30 seconds, add the bok choy. Stirfry for three to five minutes, then add coconut and sea fruits.

Put the noodles into the boiling water and boil for 2 minutes, then drain them and add them to the wok.

Serve in bowls and eat with chopsticks.
