Oyster Broccoli Stir fry noodles in peanut sauce

I recently got a Jamie Oliver can of spicy smoked oysters. In India, esp in the northern parts, oysters aren’t available easily and neither cooked often. So I bought this just to see how the experiment goes! I also got the flat egg noodles. one day I thought I’ll make something nice with these 2 ingredients. Luckily I had everything required for a stir fry in the fridge, and had just seen the episode of ‘Everyday Exotic’ on TLC to know about perfect stir fry technique. So here’s this fun recipe of Oyster Broccoli Stir fry noodles in peanut sauce. I am sure once you have this you’ll be making this every week! You can also change the recipe very easily for chicken, fish, eggs or any other main protein you wish to add.

Preparation Time: 30 mins
Serves 2
Smoked Oysters 1 small tin (You can also use ready grilled chicken 200 gms, or cottage cheese, fish, or eggs to make a different version)
Peanuts 1 tbsp
Garlic 5-6 cloves
Egg flat noodles 2 pallets ( add quantity as per your hunger! You can also add the maggi, or any normal flour based noodles also)
Wosterchire sauce 2 tsp
Vinegar 2 tsp
Broccoli 1 small
Carrot 1
Tomato 1
Refined Oil 1 tbsp
Mixed herbs (Oregano, thyme, rosemary, basil) 1 tsp
Salt and pepper to taste
Water for boiling

Recipe of Oyster Broccoli Stir fry noodles in peanut sauce
  • Cut broccoli and carrot into small pieces.
  • Blanch the broccoli florets and carrot in boiling water for 6-7 mins. Drain and keep aside.
  • Crush the peanuts in a blender into smaller pieces but not too fine.
  • Meanwhile keep the egg noodles for boiling. Follow the instructions on the pack as it may vary. Usually it takes 8-10 mins on medium heat. Do not boil 100% as it would be further cooked in stir fry.
  • In a wok heat the oil. Bring it to high heat. We need very hot pan for stir fry and keep all the other ingredients ready at your side.
  • Add the finely chopped garlic. Stir for 5 seconds.
  • Now add the mixed herbs and crushed peanuts. Stir for 10 seconds.
  • Add the broccoli and carrots. Keep stirring for 1 min.
  • Add chopped tomato. Stir for 1 min.
  • Now add the oysters from the tin. Reduce heat to medium. Mix well.
  • Add the wosterchire sauce, vinegar and ¼ the cup water. Let it cook for 2 mins.
  • Now add the noodles and fold in the sauce gently using tongs of a flat spatula.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper as per your taste. Mix gently.
  • Cook for 2-3 mins and serve hot! Yummy!!!
