Udon Noodles with Hoisin Sauce
The name Hoisin comes from Chinese name – Haixian, which means seafood or sea delicious. The word hoi translates to sea and the word sin translates to fresh or delicious.
The name is somewhat misleading since hoisin sauce contains no seafood and is not typically used in seafood dishes.
Hoisin sauce is traditionally used in Cantonese cuisine as an addition to stir-fries or barbecue. It is a very fragrant and aromatic sauce with contrasting salty and sweet flavours – often used as a dipping sauce alongside simple tofu.
In our simple and beautiful dish, we tried to recreate the delicious hoisin taste and introduce you to the wonderful world of Cantonese style sauces.
