I’ve been cooking Yi Noodles quite often recently, but never post them because I never remembered exact amount of ingredients I used. Recently lobster is on sale for $7.99 per pound, last week I bought 2 lobster around 2.5-3 pounds, and I used to cook Yi noodles. (Yi noodle is noodles that is already deep fried like instant noodles. ) Very delicious!!!
Lobster 2.5-3 pounds
Yi Noodles 400g
Ginger 35g (thin shred)
Scallion 4-5 whole pieces (thin shred)
Half small yellow onion (thin shred)
Cook yi noodles in a big pot of boiling water for about a minute, use a drainer to take noodles out of water and set aside.
Cut the lobster into small pieces.
Drain the water out, then add 4-5 tbsps corn starch to the lobster and mix well.
Deep fried lobster in hot oil about 4 minutes, make sure only a few pieces at a time, we want to keep the oil temperature high.
After all the lobster are deep fried, set aside.
Leave 2 tbsps oil in the cooking pan, add scallion, ginger and onion to the oil and stir fry for 2 minutes.
Add the lobster and noodles back to the pan and mix with the vegetables, sprinkle 1/3 tsp salt, 1/3 tsp black pepper, 1tsp sesame oil, 2tbsps Chinese cooking wine, 1.5 tbsps vegetarian oyster sauce, 1/2 tsp chicken bouillon and 2 tbsps light soy sauce to the pan and mix everything together.
