This is a very easy recipe to make. Instead of using Chow Mein noodle, I have changed it to a Yellow Noodle which is much easily found in the Asian supermarket. Since this recipe is quite flexible, you can use just about any protein you like i.e. beef, chicken or pork. Enjoy cooking!
Serves: 2 / Preparation Time: 10 mins / Cooking Time: 10 mins
1 1/2 tablespoon dark soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoon oyster sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon Maggi Sauce
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil for cooking
1 packet yellow noodle
5 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 packet baby bok choy, remove the hard stem
1 big red capsicum, cut into thin strips
2 stalks scallions, cut into 2-inch strips (optional)
1 packet shrimp, about 200gm
1 packet prawn, about 200 gm
Note: Shrimp is a smaller size than prawn and its color is very much lighter. It has a very strong smell and needs to be washed thoroughly before cooking.
Remove yellow noodle from the packet. Put in a bowl, pour 1/2 tablespoon of oil on the noodle. Gently separate the noodles so it would not stick together while cooking. Set aside. Do not soak or wash the yellow noodle as it will get lumpy and soggy.
In a small bowl, mix the dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, Maggi sauce, water, and sugar. Set aside.
Heat up the work with the vegetable oil. Add in minced garlic and stir-fry until it changes color to a lighter brown and brings out the aromatic smell.
Add in prawn and shrimp, stir fry until they are cooked. You can see the prawn is cooked when it changes to an orange-red color.
Add baby bok choy and strips of red capsicum. Quickly stir for 1 minute.
Add noodles and the soy sauce mixture. Continue to stir-fry until the noodles, the vegetables, and the soy sauce mixture are well combined and completely cooked through.
Dish it out into a big bowl. As an option, you can also put chopped scallions on top of the cooked noodles before serving. Serve hot.
