Seafood Hor Fun Recipe 海鲜河粉

Was doing my weekly grocery shopping at NTUC Fairprice and I came across this housebrand Sar Hor Fun (沙河粉) which I hadn’t cooked with before so I bought one packet to try out.

Sar Hor Fun

This is different from the usual fresh ones that I buy from the market because this hor fun comes in dried form and is much thinner like kway teow. However if you prefer the regular broad hor fun, go ahead and use that as this Seafood Hor Fun Recipe works with either type.

I use chicken leg meat, prawns, squids, fish cakes and choy sum in this. If you like, you can also replace them with or add extra fish slices, cuttlefish, sliced pork, etc. I don’t like the gravy to be overly starchy so I don’t use a lot of corn starch but you can adjust that to your preference.

It’s an easy one-pan meal to make for the family. Enjoy!
