Crustacean Inspired Garlic Noodles

Here is another Crustacean inspired recipe for Garlic noodles. I found this recipe on one of the blogs I follow on Facebook - Rasa Malaysia. I've always wanted to try this recipe but I'm more a rice person than noodles. Since I'm cooking the roasted crab, the only way to savor it is with garlic noodles. At least, that's how they serve it at most Asian restaurants. A serving of garlic noodle at Crustacean is about $11.00. If you already have the ingredients in this recipe, it will cost you just between .99 cents to $1.50 for a pound of fresh homemade noodles at the Asian market!!

Ingredients and Preparation:

1 lb fresh noodles
4 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic (pounded)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 1/2 teaspoons chicken bouillon powder
2 1/2 teaspoons oyster sauce

Rinse the noodles with cold water and set aside. Heat up a pot of water and let it boil. Boil the noodles in the hot water until they are done, drain the water, and set aside to cool down the noodles.

In a pan, saute the garlic with the olive oil in medium heat. The purpose is to infuse the olive oil with garlicky flavor.

Take out the garlic and set aside for garnish later and then add in 4 tablespoons of butter and turn the heat to low.

Add in the chicken bouillon powder, garlic powder, oyster sauce and blend well.

Set aside to let it cool.


Once the garlic mixture is cool and the noodles are cool at room temperature, pour the garlic mixture over the noodles and toss them together to blend well. Sprinkle the garlic you put aside for some crunchiness and more garlic flavor.
