Saffron Shrimp and Squid Noodles

There is time in my life when I just have to look for whatever available in the house, and throw them all together for a meal. This week was one of those moments when I created the dish below.

Dried Noodles and Saffron Powder

Saffron powder and rice noodle
I have a bag of this twisted rice noodle, and saffron powder! I cooked the noodle according to the direction on the bag. Then added enough saffron powder to give the noodle the desired color!

A Mixed of Red, Orange and Yellow Sweet Peppers

Sweet bell peppers in yellow, orange, and red
Sweet bell peppers of different colors were also available, and very affordable at this time of the year. I cut them in lengthwise.

Stir Fried Squid and Shrimp Pieces

I stir fried some shrimp and squid pieces with salt and black pepper to taste along with sweet bell pepper. Then fold in the saffron noodle and give it a quick mix.

Combination of Seafood, Noodle and Vegetables

Shrimp and Squid Noodles with Sweet Bell Pepper
It turned out quite scrumptious, and you can easily adapt this dish anyway you want such as replacing the shrimp/squid with beef, chicken or pork pieces! Mix and match different vegetables with whatever you have in the house.

The main point here is that you can feed your family delicious and healthy food without going over budget.
