Notes

  1. Cook noodles as per packet instructions. Cook noodles slightly under so they don’t get over cooked when tosses with sauce in wok. Drain slightly under cooked noodles and keep aside.
  2. Let garlic and scallions infuse in butter before you add the sauce. Infusing garlic in butter will give the dish the umami flavors.
  3. Use low sodium soy sauce to keep it healthy.
  4. Stir sauce ingredients and keep it ready before cooking. You want to toss everything fast once you start.
  5. Do not add salt unless needed. Taste test first and then add salt if needed.
