Quick Green Crab Noodle Soup
1 bunch of fresh egg noodles
Approximately 2 cups of green crab stock
Some ground pork (amount depending on your preference)
1 handful of fresh watercress, washed well
1-2 dried baby sugar kelp, cut into approximately 1-inch lengths
Fish sauce to taste
Some chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Some chopped scallions
Blanch the fresh egg noodles for a few minutes to cook and soften, strain, and place in a large bowl. Heat the stock with the meat. Once the meat is cooked add the vegetables. Season with fish sauce. Once the vegetables are just wilted remove from heat and pour over the noodles. Garnish with cilantro and scallions.
