  • Seasonal local food recipe No 169: Gingery shiitake noodles

    Posted on November 30th, 2012 Trish No comments

    Ching-He Huang’s recipe (picture too) from the BBC Good Food website. Good with stir-fried pak choi or five-spice chicken.

    Serves 4 as a side dish

    Preparation 15 minutes
    Cooking 10 minutes

    200g medium dried egg noodles
    a couple of dashes toasted sesame oil (optional)
    1 tbsp groundnut oil
    piece of fresh ginger, grated
    150g fresh shiitake mushrooms
    4 spring onions, cut into thirds, then thinly sliced into lengthways strips
    1 tbsp oyster sauce
    1 tbsp light soy sauce

    Cook the noodles according to pack instructions, then toss with a little sesame oil (or other oil) to stop them sticking.

    Heat a wok or large wide pan over a high heat, then add the groundnut oil. Once it’s smoking, add the ginger, stir-fry for a couple of secs, then add the mushrooms with a splash of water to create steam, and cook for 1 minute. Toss through the cooked noodles for 2 minutes until hot, then add the spring onions, oyster and soy sauces and (optional) a dash more sesame oil.
