    1 lobster (about 1.1 - 1.4kg)

    4 oz. Yee Mein or E-Fu noodles

    1 1/2 cup water

    1 tbsp corn starch (use more corn starch for thicker sauce)

    2 scallion stalks (cut into 5 cm length)

    10-12 slices of peeled ginger

    3 tbsp cooking oil

    1 tbsp soy sauce

  1. Clean the lobster and chop into pieces. Blot it dry.

  2. Heat up a pot of boiling water and boil the Yee Mein according to the packaging instructions. Drain and set aside.

  3. In a big wok or deep skillet, heat up the cooking oil. Stir-fry the ginger until aromatic and add the lobster. Stir continuously until they begin turning red, then add in the sauce, followed by the water.

  4. Continue to sitr and coat the lobster with the sauce before covering the wok/skillet with its lid until the lobster is fully cooked.

  5. Remove the lid and add the chopped scallions. Add salt to taste if needed.
