Method :
  • Fill a large pan with salted water and bring it to the boil. Cook the noodles for 5 minutes or until the noodle is tender.

  • Rinse it under cold water, drain and spread in a single layer on paper towels.

  • Allow to dry for about 30 minutes.

  • Reduce the heat slightly and continue cooking until the liquid has reduced to about a quarter.

  • Add another 1/2 cup water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 3 minutes.

  • Strain the liquid and set it aside, discarding all the shrimps heads, tails and shells.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of cooking oil in a large wok. When the oil is very hot, add a quarter of the noodles and fry until golden all over. Turn when necessary.

  • Remove the noodles from the wok and repeat with the remaining noodles, adding more oil when necessary.

  • Add another tablespoon of oil and fry the garlic and spring onion over low heat until soft before removing from the pan.

  • Add the shrimps and chicken and fry until golden. Remove from the pan.

  • Add the chorizo and cook until the color turns brown.

  • Add the cabbage, soy sauce and shrimp cooking liquid, and cook over high heat, stirring all the time until the liquid has reduced by a third.

  • Return the noodles to the wok and the garlic, spring onion, chicken and shrimps. Toss well until heated through.

  • Season with salt and black pepper, scatter over the coriander and serve immediately with lemon wedges.
