XO Sauce Ee-fu Noodles

I made this 20-minutes XO sauce ee-fu noodles with spicy baby abalones on the third day of Chinese New Year. There were other dishes on the table, so this was an extra side dish to share. The noodles were really well received. My family said that the noodles tasted fabulous, and I give credit to the XO sauce for making all the difference. My mum requested I cook this again for her birthday which I definitely will!

This is the Lee Kum Kee brand of XO sauce I used. You can use either the original or hot (to me, it’s only mildly spicy) versions according to your family’s preference.

This year, mini cans of baby abalones seem really popular, so I bought the above brand randomly online to try. They are decent both in terms of taste and price. I used the cut chillis and some of the chilli oil in the can to garnish the ee-fu noodles.  You can use any favourite brand of ready-to-eat baby abalones that you bought during the festive season.

Baby Abalone Ee-Fu Noodles (Step-by-Step)

First, cook dry ee-fu noodles in a pot of boiling water for less than a minute. Take out the noodles as soon as the noodles start to separate in the hot boiling water, while they are still firm and uncooked. If you overcook the noodles, they will easily break apart when they are braised later. Drain the noodles and run them under cold tap water and set aside.

  1. I love XO sauce and I am drooling over those baby abalones. The noodle must have tasted really flavourful and yummy.
