Misua with Patola and Shrimp

Misua with patola and shrimp is a soothing flour noodle soup recipe that has a close resemblance to the Filipino albondigas, except that this dish uses shrimp instead of ground pork. Preparing this dish is easy and quick.

If you are looking for a quick soup recipe that you can cook for dinner, I think that this recipe is worth your attention. This Asian shrimp noodle soup version is delicious and takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Furthermore, the costs of ingredients will surely fit your budget.

How do you eat Misua with patola? Since it can be considered as a complete meal in itself, you may eat this as it is. However, I enjoy this dish better with steamed white rice and an extra fish sauce dip. I think that this will also go well with fried bangus or fried tilapia.
