Try this copycat recipe for Garlic Noodles – just like at Crustacean Restaurant in L.A.
One of my favorite things about traveling with my mom and sisters is that we make most of our stops all about the good eats. Shows like the “best thing I ever ate” have helped in our site seeing or should I say “site tasting”. 😉 Really it’s my sister Shauna, she’s the one who finds the best food for us. It’s all about the research before the trip.
A year ago, they took a girls trip to L.A. and I wasn’t able to join them because I was on a different trip at the same time. When they got home I heard all about the Garlic Noodles from Crustacean. Luckily they found a copycat recipe, so I could try it out. I made them the other night, and they were a hit! My family loved them.
- 1 pound Asian style egg noodles (I just used spaghetti - it worked great)
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 6 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed (I used minced - I have a great mincer)
- 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
- 2 teaspoons fish sauce
- ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
- Cook noodles as directed in package and set aside. Melt butter in a pan over medium heat then add garlic and saute for 5 minutes. You want to infuse the butter with garlic but do not want to brown the because it will get bitter. Adjust heat if you need.
- Take the garlic out. Add fish sauce and oyster sauce to the butter, stir and mix. Add cooked noodles and parmesan cheese and toss.

They are really good! You could add shrimp and a side salad here too, and make it more of a complete meal. Yum!
