Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
20 dried shrimp
125ml peanut oil
3 onions, diced
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
2 teaspoons chinese wine or dry sherry
500ml water
500g chinese egg noodles

Method

  1. Soak dried shrimp in cold water for 10 minutes, then drain and clean.
  2. Heat half of the oil in a frying pan or wok, add onions and stir-fry for 2–3 minutes. Lower heat slightly, add shrimp and cook, stirring, until only residual moisture is left and oil splatters when in contact with moisture. Remove from heat.
  3. Heat rest of oil in a small saucepan, add shrimp mixture, soy sauce and wine or sherry and stir-fry for about 1–2 minutes. Add water and simmer for 30 minutes or until water has nearly evaporated.
  4. Meanwhile, cook noodles according to packet directions. Drain, rinse quickly under cold running water and drain again. Reheat all ingredients together and serve.

Note

  • Dried shrimp can be bought from Chinese groceries.
