Garlic Noodles Recipe
Serves 3-4 | Prep Time: 15 Mins | Cook Time: 5 Mins
20 oz yellow noodles or spaghetti
1 heaping tablespoon bottled grated Parmesan cheese
Water, for boiling the noodles
1 stick unsalted butter (same as 4 oz/110 g/1/2 cup/8 tablespoons)
2 heaping tablespoons minced garlic, or more to taste
1 tablespoon Maggi seasoning sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
Rinse the yellow noodles with running water to discard the oil from the noodles. Drain and set aside.
Heat up a pot of water until boiling. Add the noodles into the boiling water and cook the noodles until al dente (you want it to still have a good chewy bite), or for a few minutes. You can taste the texture of the noodles while cooking. Do not overcook as the noodles will turn soggy. Transfer the noodles out and drain dry.
Prepare the garlic sauce using a saute pan on medium to low heat. Add the butter into the pan and when it melts, add the garlic and saute until aromatic but not browned. Add all the seasonings into the pan, stir to combine well. Transfer the garlic sauce into a small bowl.
To serve, just toss all the noodles with the garlic sauce. Add the cheese, toss to combine well. Serve immediately.
For individual serving of the garlic noodles, take some noodles to a bowl and add some garlic sauce to taste. Drizzle some grated Parmesan cheese, stir to combine well before serving. If you can’t find any yellow noodles, you can use spaghetti or linguine.
