This recipe comes from a Ken Hom cookbook. It is a quick, easy side dish and holds up well at potlucks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the noodles in a large pot of boiling water, allowing 3 minutes for fresh noodles and 5 minutes for dried. Drain in a colander, rinse with cold water, and toss them with a little sesame oil. Set them aside.
  2. Heat a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the two oils and, when very hot, add the ginger. Stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add the scallions and stir-fry for 30 seconds longer. Remove from the heat and mix in the noodles. Season with salt and pepper and finally add the oyster sauce. Mix well.
  3. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I subbed the oyster sauce for soy being as I am vegetarian i'm sure this would have made a difference but what I don't know. Be careful when frying the ginger for this my first batch burnt immediately as I had the heat too high and was bitter. A good side dish to go with the other half's duck pancakes the flavours combined nicely but I wasn't blown away myself.

Used a bit more oil as I found it a bit dry the first time around. Very tasty and simple to make.
