  • ~6 oz thin egg noodles/ canton noodles (dried kind)
  • 6 oz shrimp
  • 1-2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup sliced white onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions (~1-inch long)
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1-2 tbsp vegetable oil

Stir fry sauce

  • 2 tbsp oyster (flavored) sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tbsp rice cooking wine
  • 1-2 dash white pepper or black pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp dark soy sauce optional


  • Fill a medium pot with water and bring to boil. Add noodles to boiling water and cook for 3 minutes (or according to package instruction for fried noodles). Drain water from noodles. Add some vegetable oil to the noodles and mix it around if it will be sitting for a while prior to cooking. This will prevent the noodles from clumping and sticking together.
  • In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients for stir fry sauce
  • Prep the other ingredients - shrimp, garlic, white onions, green onions, cabbage, and carrots.
  • Heat up wok under high heat. Add ~1/2 tbsp vegetable oil. Once wok is heated up, add defrosted shrimp (make sure it is pat dry) and cook for a few minutes until shrimp is done. Remove shrimp from wok.
  • Add ~1 tbsp vegetable oil to wok. Once oil is hot, add garlic and onions and cook for 30 seconds or so, avoid burning the garlic. 
  • Add noodles and stir continuously for 1 minute or so, then add sauce to noodles. Continue stirring noodle for another minute or so, and coat noodles evenly with sauce. (See Note 1) 
  • Add shrimp, green onions, shredded cabbage and shredded carrots to the noodles. Stir for 30 seconds or so, then remove promptly.
  • Serve and enjoy.


If you are doubling or tripling the recipe, consider cooking noodles in multiple batches.
Note 1: If you are using a different noodle, you might need less or more time frying them depending on the noodles. Some noodles will turn soggy quicker, and some will take longer to cook.
