When I stir-fry Harusame Noodles, I usually soak them in water before cooking. You don’t need to do that for this dish. This is a very simple, quick and easy recipe. Today I used 100g Lettuce, but you can add a lot more.


1 Servings


1 to 2 Eggs
Salt & White Pepper
1 teaspoon Oil *plus extra
100g Shelled Prawns *thawed if frozen
2 leaves (about 100g) Iceberg Lettuce *torn into bite-size pieces, you can add more
Salt & White Pepper
40g Dry ‘Harusame’ Noodles (Bean Thread Noodles)

1/2 cup Chicken Stock *OR 1/2 cup Water & 1/2 teaspoon Asian Chicken Bouillon Powder
1/2 teaspoon grated Ginger *OR Garlic if you prefer
1 teaspoon Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Oyster Sauce
A few drops Sesame Oil
Chilli Flakes as required *optional

  1. Whisk Egg(s) in a small bowl, and lightly season with Salt & White Pepper.
  2. Combine all the Sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Prepare Prawns and Lettuce. You must prepare everything before you start cooking. Cooking process doesn’t take long at all.
  3. Heat Oil in a frying pan, cook Egg(s) softly, return to the bowl. Add extra Oil if required, cook Prawns, then add Lettuce and lightly season with Salt and White Pepper. *Note: DO NOT overcook Lettuce.
  4. Add the sauce. Tilt the pan and cook Harusame Noodles in the sauce, turning and stirring. When Harusame Noodles become soft and transparent, return the Egg, and mix to combine.
