Stir Fry Yellow Noodles With Fresh Oyster

Oh Mee, one of the popular stir fried yellow noodles with fresh oysters as its main ingredients.  Available only at some food outlets operated by mostly Hokkien cooks.  The noodles are cooked to a slightly thick  and smooth consistency.   Many visitors to Penang would probably give it a try when they visit the island.
Whenever fresh oysters are available in the fresh market, I will be tempted to buy some to cook this dish either for Sunday lunch or dinner. The ingredients and preparation are quite simple.    In some Penang wet markets, we can still get a small packet for RM3.00.
[serves  2 - 3]
a medium packet of fresh oysters - rinse, drain in colander
500 gm fresh yellow noodles
2 - 3 stalks of sawi [chai sim] or bok choy - washed and cut
coriander leaves - chopped or spring onions [cut 1 inch length]
a few slices of ginger
some chopped garlic
2 tbsp oil
1-2 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp oyster sauce
chicken stock [dissolve 1 tsp chicken granules in 1 1/2 cup water]
dash of pepper
some red chilli strips or cut small chillies
  1. Rinse yellow noodles under running tap water in a colander.  Set aside.
  2. Fry ginger slices and chopped garlic in oil until fragrant.   Add in yellow noodles, fry and add in vegetables. Stir fry to mix noodles and vegetables well, then add seasoning and chicken stock.
  3. Continue frying till sauce is boiling and almost thick. Add in fresh oysters.   Give it a good stir to mix well and dish out to serve immediately with cut chillies.
Note: Can add fresh prawns or meat slice if you prefer other ingredients in the noodles. If meat and prawns are added, it must be fried before adding yellow noodles.

I haven't eaten fresh oysters for a long, long time. Love it fried with eggs.

Hi Cheah, Pg Oh Chien [oysters omelette] and this noodle are my favourites. But I only eat local Penang oysters not the imported ones from Thailand. They are really different taste and texture wise.
