This Chile oil and garlic noodle recipe was so simple and easy, I couldn’t resist. This dish is flavorful, which is great as a vegetarian dish, or can be topped with some protein. I chose some juicy prawns/shrimp, so I adapted this recipe from spoonforkbacon.
In an effort to continue to expand my existing knowledge of food culture, I realised that Asian food is not one that I know much about from a recipe standpoint. Don’t get me wrong I know the basics, It’s one of my favorite genres of food, I’m just not that familiar with the construction of some other complex dishes from different regions.
I’m seeking to learn and understand basic flavor profiles, and seasonings and so I decided to start with this simple Korean style garlic noodles with Chile oil.
