  • Large pot or Wok


  • 8-10 scallions sliced thin
  • 1 cup oil canola or vegetable
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup dark soy sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp chili flakes 2 for extra spicy
  • noodles


  • In a large pot over medium-low heat add the oil. Once the oil has heated up add scallions and give a mix. Cook the scallions slowly until crispy (15-25 minutes) DO NOT RUSH THIS!
  • Once scallions are golden brown (or slightly before if you don't like over-done scallions) pull out with tongs.
  • Strain the oil to get any remaining scallions out and return to low heat.
  • Add chili flakes and cook for another 3 minutes.
  • Add soy sauce, and dark soy sauce and cook for another 3 minutes constantly stiring.
  • Transfer the oil sauce to an air tight container if not using immediately, and put in the refrigerator to store.
  • When ready to assemble the noodles, cook noodles as per instructions. Drain, and place in a bowl. Spoon over oil (approx 2-3 tbsp per serving). Mix to combine and top with crispy scallions.


  • Crispy scallions will stay good for 1 day, oil however can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. When you are ready to use again heat up the oil before pouring over the noodles.
