  • 3 oz squid cleaned
  • 4 fresh scallops
  • 3 oz raw prawns shrimp, shelled
  • 1/2 egg white lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp cornflour cornstarch paste
  • 9 1/2 oz egg noodles
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 oz mangetout snow peas
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp Chinese rice wine
  • 2 spring onions scallions, finely shredded
  • a few drops of sesame oil


  • Open up the squid and score the inside in a Criss-Cross pattern, then cut into pieces about the size of a postage stamp. Soak the squid in a bowl of boiling water until all the pieces curl up. Rinse in cold water and drain.
  • Cut each scallop into 3-4 slices. Cut the prawns (shrimp) in half lengthways if large. Mix the scallops and prawns (shrimp) with the egg white and cornflour (cornstarch) paste.
  • Cook the noodles in boiling water according to the packet instructions, then drain and rinse under cold water. Drain well, then toss with about 1 tablespoon of oil.
  • Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a preheated wok. Add the noodles and 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce and stir-fry for 2 - 3 minutes. Remove to a large serving dish.
  • Heat the remaining oil in the wok and add the mangetout (snow peas) and seafood. Stir-fry for about 2 minutes, then add the salt, sugar, wine, remaining soy sauce and about half the spring onions (scallions). Blend well and add a little stock or water if necessary. Pour the seafood mixture on top of the noodles and sprinkle with sesame oil. Garnish with the remaining spring onions (scallions) and serve.
  • Chinese rice wine, made from glutinous rice, is also known as 'yellow wine' because of its golden amber colour. If it is unavailable, a good dry or medium sherry is an acceptable substitute.
