Honey Garlic Scallion Noodles
Here’s a great recipe that’s really delicious and easy to do. It’s a honey garlic scallion stir-fried noodle that’s sweet, with a touch of spice. If the flavour looks familiar, you’re right. It’s the same sauce from the Hawaiian chicken we did a few months ago. I added fresh chopped scallions for contrast and a splash of colour. You’re going to love this recipe!
You will need:
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup mirin
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon chili flake
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 454 g chow mein noodles
- 1 bunch green onions (scallions) chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
In a large mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce, mirin, sesame oil, Korean chili flakes and sesame seeds. To that, add a couple tablespoons of minced garlic and a tablespoon of honey. Whisk to combine and give it a little taste. Adjust to taste and set aside.
Next, take the chow mein noodles and blanch them in boiling water for about 30 seconds. Drain well then set aside.
Heat up a couple tablespoons of oil in a pan or wok on high heat. Add the noodles and a tablespoon of finely chopped ginger and stirfry for a couple minutes. Add half a bunch of chopped scallions and continue cooking for another 30 seconds.
When that’s done, add your sauce and continue to stirfry for another minute or so. Immediately plate up into bowls and garnish with more scallions for colour and fresh contrast. This is a quick dish to make and serve up alone or with grilled meat. Try it at home and enjoy!
When was the last time you had green onions?
