  • Wok
  • Non stick utensil


Soy Sauce Noodles

  • 4 packets instant noodles Note 1
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 4 cloves garlic thinly sliced, Note 2
  • 4 shallots finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce Note 3
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce Note 4
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce Note 5
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt Note 6
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


Soy Sauce Noodles

  • Add noodles to a heat proof bowl, boil the kettle and when boiled, pour water over the noodles
  • Add peanut oil to a wok, followed by sliced garlic, stir fry for 1-2 mins
  • Add chopped scallions, salt and pepper, stir fry 1 min
  • Drain noodles and discard water
  • Add cooked noodles to wok
  • Pour in soy sauce, fish sauce, sriracha, dark soy sauce and stir to combine
  • Drizzle over sesame oil and stir again
  • Plate, top with leftover scallions and serve immediately



  • Note 1 You can use packet noodles, dried noodles, instant noodles or 2 minute noodles. Cook according to the packet instructions (but don't use the seasoning or dried bits of stuff in the packet).
  • Note 2 Have a look at the photos to see how I slice the garlic. We want to do this for texture. Minced garlic or garlic from a jar won't cut it for this recipe!
  • Note 3 The flavour mellows with this one in the wok. It is not 'too fishy'. Try it as it brings a unique Asian taste to the dish. 
  • Note 4 This will be in the same aisle at the supermarket and will say 'dark' or 'premium' soy sauce. Pick up the bottle and roll it around a little. You will see that the colour is darker, the consistency thicker and it is less hard to 'see through'. 
  • Note 5 Its hot stuff baby! If you are new to it, take it slowly,  less is more!
  • Note 6 Omit the additional salt if you don't enjoy a lot of salt. The soy sauces are strong and salty, so again, less is more!
