Shanghai Noodles

Shanghai Noodles

This recipe for Shanghai Noodles is a real family favourite. It’s super tasty, and healthy as well. The hoisin and soy sauces give a great rich flavour to the dish, and the noodles pick up a wonderful taste being seared in the wok. This dish has been on our weekly family dinner rotation since I threw this recipe together years ago, and it is at no risk of falling off the list in the near future.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
