Seafood Chow Mein

Prep: 15 mins

Cook: 10 mins

A deliciously savoury chow mein with succulent seafood

  • 2 spring onions

  • ½ thumb sized piece ginger (cut into matchsticks)

  • 2 cloves garlic (finely sliced)

  • 1 small carrot (cut into matchsticks)

  • 2 stalks of Choy Sum (Cut into lengths)

  • 2 Spring Onions (Finely slice tops for garnish, the rest cut into chunks)

  • Handful shimeji mushrooms

  • 6 scallops

  • 6 large whole prawns (heads and shells on)

  • 6 pieces baby squid (cleaned and scored, cut into bite sized pieces)

  • 200g fresh egg noodles

The Sauce

  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce

  • ½ tbsp light soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce

  • ¼ tsp sugar

  • 100ml chicken stock, boiled with prawn heads and shells

  • ½ tsp sesame oil

Preparation

  • Sear the scallops on a high heat for a minute on each side. Once golden brown on both sides, set aside. Sear the mushrooms next, until golden brown. Set aside

  • Add the chicken stock to the pan, and add the prawns. After 2 -3 minutes pop the prawns into a bowl of cold water and pour the stock into a bowl. Season the stock with the oyster sauce, light soy, sugar and dark soy. Peel the prawns.

Time to Wok!

  • Get the wok smoking hot. Add the oil, ginger, spring onion and garlic. Fold through until the ingredients are catching a little.

  • Next add the veg. Use the “Tummy and the Head Technique” to stop the garlic and ginger from burning (moving the wok forwards and backwards, while stirring with a ladle at the same time). Once the leaves start to wilt, set everything aside.

  • Add more oil to the wok, and get it up to a high heat. Add the Squid and sear. Set aside.

  • Add more oil to the wok and add the noodles in. Flick through before adding the seafood and veg. Add 2 ladles of sauce - allow to boil up for a minute, then use the “Tummy and the Head Technique” to mix it through. Drizzle some sesame oil over, and flick through again to finish off.
