I love Asian style noodles. Reasonably fast to make and pretty much good for you, its street food at it’s best. this Asian style shallot and garlic pan fried noodles recipe is the kids favorite.


1 lb. fresh lo mein noodles, Hong Kong frying noodles or even cooked spaghetti (look here for noodles)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
12 large shallots, sliced lengthwise  – about 1 ½ cups
3 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 cup broth or water
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1½ teaspoon chili garlic sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 bunch scallions, white and green part, cut diagonally into very thin slices
1/2 bunch cilantro, stems and leaves roughly chopped
Juice of 1 lime

Optional: Cooked chicken, Asian BBQ pork or shrimp – really anything. I like the BBQ, about 1 cup chopped.



Heat oil in a wok or large sauté pan over medium high heat until hot
Add shallots and stir breaking them apart into the rings
Sauté, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 8 to 12 minutes
Add the sliced garlic and ginger for 1 minute
Add the fish sauce, sugar, chili sauce and cook 1 more minute

Add the cooked noodles and stir-fry for 5 minutes
Add broth or water and soy sauce and the optional meat to the pan and combine well turning for 2 -3 minutes until the water is gon.

Turn off the heat and add sesame oil, scallions, cilantro, and the lime juice.
Toss to combine and serve.
