I always have a bottle of XO Sauce in the fridge, so I like to think of new uses for this ingredient. XO Sauce is a gourmet Cantonese seafood sauce made up of dried scallops & dried shrimps among other ingredients, and it can be eaten on its own as a condiment or used in stir-fries.
This is my lazy, quick & simplified version of XO Sauce noodles aka zha jiang mian 炸酱面 (“zha jiang mian” is a popular Northern China dish; it translates as fried meat sauce noodles). The result tastes gourmet, thanks to the XO Sauce. It definitely makes a quick and balanced one-dish meal with the blanched greens at the side.
