Crispy Mystery Semolina Noodles

Plays: 4396

In this video, you’ll see how to make crispy fried semolina noodles. This is an experiment that began as semolina pancakes or crepes and evolved into something entirely other! Follow along as Chef John changes his mind on the fly, cutting his semolina pancakes into slivers and pan-frying them in olive oil to arrive at a crispy noodle dish! What he ends up with is a little like German spaetzle or chow-mein noodles—or perhaps shoe-string potatoes! In the end, it’s a little like all of these, and none of them. It is, in fact, the mystery noodle! Served with a little grated Parmesan and salt, these crispy crunchies are just plain delicious. Watch the video, then get recipes for Homemade Noodles.
