Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 oz noodles (225 g)
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 12 oz raw, peeled, and deveined shrimp (350 g)

  • 4 oz broccoli florets (100 g)

  1. Cook the noodles according to package instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
  2. Mix the oyster sauce and soy sauce in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Next, prepare all the vegetables and set them aside.
  4. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.

  7. Next, add the onion and saute until soft.
  8. Then, add the broccoli florets, carrot and cook for 5 minutes or until tender. Frequently stir to prevent burning.
  9. Next, add noodles followed by the sauce mixture and stir continuously to combine everything.
  10. Finally, add the shrimp, sesame seeds, and more spring onions to garnish. Serve immediately.

Notes

Prepare all the vegetables ahead: This dish comes out very quickly once you start the stir-frying process. Ensure you prepare all the veggies ahead, so they’re ready to go when you need to throw them into the wok and prevent them from burning.

Cut the veggies into different shapes: Cutting the vegetables into different shapes adds texture to the dish.

Don’t overcook the veggies: You want your veggies tender but still crispy. Keep an eye on it, and don’t let them overcook.

Use a large wook to get the best results: If you use a pan that is too small, it won’t be easy to toss all the ingredients together, and your vegetables won’t cook as quickly as if you were stir-frying them on a larger one.
