I had been seeing these scallion oil noodles on social media and had to try it since I had a ton of scallions from the onion harvest in my parents' garden. This dish turned out super delicious. I had several meals out of the one package of noodles. I tried a variation with scrambled eggs, but it wasn't as good. I think basically any type of protein would work great with this. I just needed some kind of protein in there.
I've seen different variations of this dish online. This is what I went with.
- 1 quart bag 3-inch pieces of scallions
- 1 cup olive oil
- 2 Tablespoons white sugar
- 2 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1 Tablespoon oyster sauce
- 1 bunch somen noodles
- 1 egg
- dash of sesame seeds (optional for garnish)
- Heat olive oil in pan on low/medium heat.
- Add scallions to oil and flip over frequently to cook evenly.
- Boil water, cook noodles according to package directions, and drain.
- Fry egg
- When scallions are done, remove from oil and turn off heat.
- Add sugar, soy sauce and oyster sauce to oil and stir well. This is your scallion oil.
- Add drained noodles to bowl.
- Add enough scallion oil to coat noodles and mix well.
- Top with fried scallions, fried egg, and sesame seeds.
