Hong Kong Shrimp Roe Noodles

Shrimp Roe Noodles Recipe

Toasting the shrimp roe powder in a dry pan just before serving draws out the aromatic umami flavour of the shrimp roe.



  1. Toast the shrimp roe powder on medium heat in a dry pan until you smell the fragrance, about a minute or less. Set aside in a saucer.
  2. In a pot of water, add wonton noodles and cook until the strands are separated. Drain the noodles and toss them with lard (or shallot) oil and soy sauce.
  3. Transfer the noodles to a serving plate. Sprinkle toasted shrimp roe powder over the noodles and serve immediately.

  1. Yummy! I dare say this tastes as good as the ones served in Hong Kong eateries!

  2. Must be so umami with the shrimp roe. Simple but I cannot make leh (no shrimp roe!). Not sure if they sell it here but I am assuming a “no”

    • I think it’s quite difficult to find this outside of Macau/Hong Kong – even in HK, I searched the whole seafood street (supposedly where it’s sold) but couldn’t find. Got lucky at one of the bigger supermarkets. If you do travel to HK again, add it to your list as I think you will like the taste.

    • Lucky you! Which supermarket did you buy it from? I couldn’t find them in my recent trip to HK….

      Would you be interested in noodles with shrimp roe embedded in each strand? I bought such noodles from Kan Kee, located at 15 Peel Street (Central), cooked them and then topped with blanched green veggies and garlic fried with crab oil (also bought from HK – Hee Kee [the restaurant selling fried crabs in “typhoon shelter” style]. Yummy….

    • I bought it from City Super – you can read more about it here: https://noobcook.com/shrimp-roe-powder/

      Thanks for sharing – will check out the noodles and the crabs at Central in future. I did buy some shrimp roe noodles in HK before, but I find them too thick and personally preferred the thin wonton noodles that are used at the HK eateries :)

  3. This noodle dish sure sounds and looks delicious…especially great due to its simplicity…yum!
    Enjoy the rest of your week Wiffy :)

  4. where do I buy this “shrimp Roe powder” in HK? Do u know the name of the shop ?

  5. Did you recently buy this at city super? I looked at the one at IFC today but could not find it.

  6. Hi! Where did u get the noodles?? Would love to buy them! Btw ur recipes are great!
