Butter, garlic, soy sauce, fish sauce, and Parmesan seems like a funky combination, but it’s a delicious way to dress a side of noodles.
Recipe from Spoon Fork Bacon.
- 12 oz. lo-mein noodles or spaghetti
- 3 1/2 Tbs. unsalted butter
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 Tbs. brown sugar
- 1 Tbs. fish sauce
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
- Pinch white pepper, optional
- 2 green onion, thinly sliced on a bias and divided
Fill a large pot with water, place over high heat, and bring to a boil. Add noodles and boil until soft, 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain noodles into a colander and rinse under cool water. Set aside.
Place a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat and melt butter. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add soy sauce, brown sugar, and fish sauce, and cook together until sugar dissolves and mixture is boiling, 2 to 3 minutes.
Raise heat to high, add noodles, and toss together for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and sprinkle Parmesan, 1 sliced green onion and white pepper (if using) over noodles and continue to toss together until noodles are evenly coated in sauce.
Top garlic noodles with more green onions and serve.
