Happy 2016! I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season filled with love and fun! We are back from our holiday break as well and today I bring to you a dish that I am very proud of. I love asian cooking but I have always lacked the skills to make an asian dish taste the way it’s suppose to taste. Eric always jokes that whenever I make asian noodles they always come out tasting like some weird Italian version of asian cooking…which I guess is correct! But the other night I attempted yet again, a simple garlic noodle…and guess what! It actually tasted authentic! I’m sure many of you out there will be able to tell me everything that is NOT authentic about this dish but for a beginner in this department I was extremely happy with the results.
I hope to gain some further knowledge about asian cooking along the way, but for all of you beginner noodle cookers out there…I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
See you next time foodies!
1 package of chow mein noodles (cooked according to package)
3 bunches of bok choy cleaned and sliced
4 cloves of garlic minced
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup sliced scallions
1 stick of butter
Large shelled prawns (whatever amount you desire, we did about 1/2 lb.)
In a large fry pan, melt butter and sauté garlic and scallions until fragrant, about 5-7 minutes.
Add in soy sauce and prawns (leave shells on)
cook in butter sauce until pink on both sides.
Stir in the brown sugar and then throw in the bok choy and cook just until the veg is slightly wilted but still crunchy, about 1-2 minutes.
Stir in noodles and heat through and serve immediately.
