Whelks In Spicy Oyster Sauce With Noodles Recipe


  • A large glug of peanut oil
  • 500 g cooked whelks, picked and thinly sliced
  • 1 can of bamboo shoots, thinly sliced
  • 1 courgettes, sliced into ribbons with a peeler
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced
  • A finger of grated ginger
  • A large splash of light soy sauce
  • A tbsp oyster sauce (don’t over do it or it becomes very salty) 
  • A drizzle of  sesame oil
  • 6 spring onions, finely sliced
  • A large handful of coriander, finely chopped
  • A pack of fresh thin egg noodles
  • A large pinch of toasted sesame seeds


  1. Heat the peanut oil in a wok until it is smoking. Add the whelks and bamboo shoot and stir-fry for about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Remove them from the wok and place to one-side whilst you stir fry the garlic, chilli and ginger. Add the soy and oyster sauce then return the whelks and bamboo shoots.
  3. Stir-fry for a couple of minutes. As the sauce starts to thicken add the 4 of the spring onions and the coriander. Make sure all the ingredients are combined equally. Set to one side.
  4. Add the noodles to a pan of boiling water for a couple of minutes, before draining them and adding a drizzle of sesame oil. Place the noodles on a plate and add the whelks sauce. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
