Preparing the Lobster
1. Using kitchen shears or a cleaver, cut lobster tails to 2 inch pieces leaving the shell on.
2. Premix sauce base by combining oyster sauce, soy sauce, sugar, white pepper, shaoxing wine, sesame oil, msg, and chicken broth and set aside.
3. To a large bowl, add cornstarch and season with salt and white pepper.
4. Lightly dust lobster pieces in the seasoned cornstarch, shaking off any excess.
5. Heat oil in a large wok or pan, then fry the lobster at 350F for 45 seconds – 1 minute until the lobster is bright red and cooked through.
Cooking the Noodles
1. Cook noodles in boiling water and drain immediately and rinse with cold water to remove starch and stop the cooking process.
Final Preparation
1. In a large pan or wok, add 1 tbsp of oil and stir fry garlic, ginger, and scallion whites for 30 seconds or until fragrant.
2. Immediately add lobster and stir fry for 1 minute.
3. Add premixed sauce and stir over high heat, then combine chicken stock and heat until boiling, then simmer for 4-5 minutes to reduce slightly.
4. Add scallion greens and mix through, then add cornstarch slurry and stir until thickened, about 1 minute.
5. Pour over noodles in a large bowl, serve, and enjoy!
