Spicy Scallion Oil Noodles
A simple, savory, and flavorful noodle dish, using just 6 ingredients.
- 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
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.
