Stir fried udon noodles with seafood in XO sauce


Here's another fave version of fried udon .....

As with the one I've made few months before , this version is usually seen at some cha chaan tengs ( Chinese -style diner that serves Chinese-Western food on the cheap )  all over Hongkong .....

It's simple and hearty dish that's easy to prepare and makes a very satisfying meal for the whole family .


Recipe adapted from  A Taste of Local Tea Restaurants
                                                                                     
                                                                                       My modification :
40 grams fish fillet                                                            
40 grams squid                                                               150 grams fish fillet

  2. Anne, this looks colourful and appetizing. I like the use of fermented black bean in this noodle dish... it is definitely the "soul" of this dish for me.

    Your spring onion "flower" garnish looks good and shows your attention to details.

  12. Anne, the thought of XO sauce makes my mouth water!! I normally only use oyster sauce, now I shall hunt for XO sauce when frying Udon.
