Ingredients

  • 12 oz (340 g) shrimp , peeled and deveined

Marinade

  • 1/2 teaspoon Shaoxing wine (or dry sherry)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

Sauce

Stir Fry

  • 8 oz (225 g) fresh Hong Kong Pan Fry noodles (or thin egg noodles)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic , sliced
  • 4 yu choy (or baby bok choy) , greens and stems separated and sliced on the bias
  • 1 carrot , thinly sliced to strips

Instructions

  • Combine the shrimp and the marinade ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Stir to mix well. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  • Mix the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a large nonstick skillet bring an inch of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the noodles and cook for 30 seconds (or according to the packaging). Drain and rinse the noodles with cold water to stop cooking. Add a drizzle of oil, toss, and set aside.
  • In the same pan, add 1 tablespoon of oil and heat over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the garlic. Cook until the garlic is fragrant, 30 seconds or so.
  • Add the shrimp and brown both sides, about 1 minute per side, or until the shrimp curl up. Transfer the shrimp to a large plate and set aside.
  • Add the yu choy stems and carrots. Let everything cook without stirring for 30 seconds, then stir and cook for another minute.
  • Add the noodles and yu choy greens to the pan along with another tablespoon of oil. Toss the noodles with a pair of tongs to incorporate all the ingredients, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Pour in the sauce and add back the cooked shrimp. Stir and toss to coat everything evenly. The veggies should be tender but still a bit crunchy. Carefully taste the noodles and cook for another minute if needed. You can adjust the seasoning by adding a bit more XO sauce.
  • Transfer everything to serving plates. Serve hot as a main dish or a side dish.
