Chinese noodles with fried shrimp recipe

A delicious and easy-to-prepare dish to celebrate Chinese New Year: stir-fried noodles promise an authentic journey through the flavors of Asia. This family dish from Chinese cuisine requires just a handful of ingredients, making it the ideal choice for a quick and tasty meal.

Egg noodles, known for their quick cooking time and firm texture even after storage, make a delicious base for this recipe.

How to cook Chinese noodles

By contrast with Asia’s ubiquitous instant noodles, exemplified by brands such as yum-yum, Chinese egg noodles offer a more authentic culinary experience, akin to traditional Italian pasta. To prepare these noodles, simply follow the instructions on the packaging.


Chinese noodles can be enhanced by adding julienne vegetables such as zucchini, carrots, Chinese cabbage or broccoli. For added flavor and texture, add bean sprouts, strips of black mushroom or tender pieces of chicken or beef. Together, these ingredients add delicious flavors that go beyond seafood. The versatility of this dish allows you to experiment with a range of fresh or frozen vegetables and different proteins.

Of the many delicious combinations, a popular choice in my house is stir-fried Chinese noodles with chicken. The succulent flavors of the chicken marry beautifully with the noodles, creating a dish that satisfies the taste buds and leaves a lasting impression.
