  • Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Add the egg to pan and tilt the pan to spread it into a thin sheet.
  • As soon as it begins to set, scramble it to break it into small
  • lumps.
  • Remove and set aside with shrimp.
  • Heat 1 tbs of oil in wok or skillet and heat 30 seconds and add
  • soften noodles.
  • Thin noodles to cover the surface of the pan, then clump them
  • together and gently turn over, repeat this process until the noodles soften and curl into ivory ringlets.
  • Add fish sauce and turn noodles to evenly season.
  • Add sugar and peanuts and continue to turn the noodles to
  • season.
  • Reserve some of the bean sprouts, green onion for garnish.
  • Add the bean sprouts, green onions and the shrimp and egg
  • mixture.

  • Transfer noodles to the serving paltter and squeeze the juice
