when you think garlic crabs, you naturally think garlic noodles. thahn long, crustaeans and ppq dungeness island has made us think this way.
ive tried all sorts of recipes and techniques..... parmesan cheese, fish sauce.... tried them all. this recipe/technique works amazingly.
take a spoonful or so of the crab butter mixture... NOTE when you put the crab butter mixture away in the frig, the fats will solidify and "float" and the garlic will drop to the bottom.
get both the garlic and the fats.
add in oyster sauce.
add in white pepper and black pepper
noodles... a note about noodles. ive literally tried about a hundred or so different style, types, brands of noodles and ive settled with..... fresh pancit.
the chinese market near my place has these and i think they work just fine. ive also used all sorts of pancit noodles and they have been fine. yeah... so basically, any pancit noodles.
cook these noodles in salted boiling water for a few, then add the noodles to the heated crab butter oyster sauce pan.
THATS IT. im telling you. this is usually the big winner of the night. ive had discussions at lengths about garlic noodles and this technique vs others and 90% of everyone has said this by far is the best garlic noodles theyve had. and its this easy?!?!?!
of course id add some chopped green onions or chives.... hell add in some of the garlic roasted crab meat....
trust. this will disappear in a blink of an eye.
now this crab butter and oyster sauce recipe can be adapted to veggies! i love using this recipe for snow pea leaves, pea sprouts.....
rinse the veggies.
add the veggies. it will water down the sauce with its natural juice. no worries. cook the greens until it reaches he doneness you like. i like them slightly wilted yet with a nice bite.... remove from the pan but keep the sauce in the. let the sauce heat in the pan by itself and reduce the sauce. stir it occasionally to prevent it from burning. top the veggies with it.
this will disappear just as fast as your garlic noodles.
