(Chinese recipes, prepare authentic Chinese food now!)

Recently, my neighborhood Asian grocery store had a lobster sale. At $6.99/lb, it was a steal that I couldn’t pass up, so I got myself a 3-lb Boston lobster.

When it comes to lobsters, there aren’t that many recipes that I know of. (Previously, I had stir-fried and baked lobster with cheese and butter and also a mango and lobster salad.) In my opinion, lobster is one of those ingredients that is very delicious but not very versatile…

In the Chinese restaurants in the United States, lobsters are often served with Yee Mein (or “E-Fu” noodles). First, the lobster is stir-fried with ginger and scallion, and then poured over a bed of boiled Yee Mein. Lobster Yee Mein is a celebrated dish that graces wedding dinners, birthday banquets or casual dining. And that was exactly what I made.

The lobster yee mein was very yummy and the taste was close to restaurant quality, but it lacked wok hei (the “breath of wok“). Cooking a big lobster at home was challenging–the wok could hardly contain the giant claws, but I managed.

Lobster Yee Mein (Lobster Noodles) Recipe

Lobster Yee Mein (Lobster Noodles) recipe and pictures. Lobster Yee Mein is a celebrated Chinese recipe that is great for Chinese dinners and banquet.

Ingredients:

1 lobster (about 2.5 – 3 lbs)
4 oz. Yee Mein or E-Fu Noodles
1 1/2 cup water + 1 tablespoon corn starch (use more corn starch if you like thicker sauce)
2 stalks scallions (cut into 2-inch length)
10-12 slices peeled ginger
3 tablespoons cooking oil
Extra cooking oil for frying

Sauce:

2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon white pepper powder
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
Salt to taste

Method:
Clean the lobster and chop into pieces. (I always ask the store to chop it up for me). Lightly crack the lobster claws in advance. Blot the lobster dry with paper towels.

Heat up a pot of boiling water and boil the Yee Mein according to the packing instructions. Make sure not to over boil the Yee Mein. Drain and set aside on a big plate/bowl.

In a big wok or deep skillet, heat up 3 tablespoons of cooking oil. Stir-fry the ginger until aromatic and drop in the lobster. Stir continuously until they start turning red, then add in the sauce, follow by the water. Continue to stir and coat the sauce nicely, then cover the wok/skillet with its lid and wait for a couple minutes or until the lobster pieces are cooked through. (Do not over cook the lobter as it will turn rubbery in texture!)

Remove the lid and add the chopped scallions into the lobster. Add salt to taste if needed. Transfer the lobster out and pour onto the bed of yee mein. Serve immediately.
