Wok vegetable noodles:

  • 2 tbsp Soy sauce light
  • 2 tbsp Mirin (sweet rice wine)
  • 1 tsp Ginger powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 0,5 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Peanut oil
  • Flour (and all of the following) for breading
  • 1 Egg size L.
  • 2 tbsp Cream
  • Panko flour
  • Frying oil
  • 1 tbsp go. Dried Mu-Err mushrooms
  • 120 g Celeriac
  • 120 g Leek
  • 120 g Red / orange peppers
  • 120 g Zucchini
  • 1 size Red peppers
  • 1 tsp Chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp 5-Gewürze-Pulver
  • 2 tbsp Peanut oil
  • 6 tbsp Mirin (sweet rice wine)
  • 2 tbsp Soy sauce light
  • 1 tsp Toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp Hoi Sin Sauce
  • 200 ml Coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp Rice vinegar
  • 80 g Wok noodles

Preparation of shrimp and vegetables:

  1. Let the shrimp thaw slowly (if possible in the refrigerator). Remove the shell and, if necessary, cut lightly at the upper curve and pull the intestine. Then rinse the prawns under cold water and dry them well. Mix the soy sauce, mirin, ginger, garlic, salt and peanut oil into a marinade and place the prawns in it. You should steep in it for at least 2 – 3 hours with the bowl closed (turn every now and then) For a more intense taste – and depending on the time available – it is ideal to insert them in the morning if they are to be prepared in the evening.
  2. For the wok, wash all the vegetables and dry them well. Put the Mu-Err mushrooms in a bowl, pour a little boiling water over them and leave to swell. Clean celery stalks, pull the threads if necessary and cut across into slices. Clean the leek, cut into rings and rinse a little more to remove any remaining sand. Core the peppers and cut into bite-sized pieces. Zucchini as well. Halve the pepper lengthways, remove the core and cut across into fine strips. Squeeze out the swollen Mu-Err mushrooms and remove any hard spots. Cut larger ones into small pieces.


  1. Since the preparation goes very quickly and shrimp and vegetables run parallel, fill a smaller (approx. 25 mm) pan 5 mm with deep-frying oil, put 2 tablespoons of peanut oil in a wok or a large pan and have both ready.
  2. Now set up a breading line for the prawns: 1. Bowl with flour, 2. Bowl with the egg whisked with the cream, 3. Bowl with panko flour. Lift the prawns out of the marinade, dab a little with kitchen paper, first coat with the flour, then dip completely in the egg and finally roll them thoroughly in the panko flour. When all are done, heat the oil in the pan and wok. With the one for the prawns, however, only at 2/3 of the full temperature. In the oil in the wok, lightly fry all the vegetables – the zucchini last – seasoning with the 5-spice powder and the chilli flakes so that both can be roasted easily. Then turn the heat halfway down and turn the vegetables over and over and let them turn slightly glassy for approx. 3 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, the oil should have reached the right heat for the shrimp. Then put them all in and – if it foams too much – reduce the temperature a little so that they don’t brown too quickly. In this size you need about 4 – 5 minutes on each side. At the same time, season the vegetables in a wok with mirin, soy sauce, sesame oil, hoi-sin sauce and rice vinegar, then deglaze with the coconut milk and bring to the boil once. Fold in the wok noodles, reduce the heat again and simmer another 3 – 4 gently and let the noodles cook and swell. Stir it every now and then. The liquid should then be completely boiled off. If the vegetable noodles are ready a little earlier than the prawns, just keep them warm.
