Shrimp Chow Fun
Chow Fun is a staple Cantonese dish, made from wet stir-frying “ho fun” (wide rice noodles) in a sauce.  The important factor in making this dish is the “wok hei” (the wok air).  The cooking must be done over a high flame and the stirring must be done quickly.  Not only must the “ho fun” noodles be stirred quickly, it must not be handled too strongly or it will break into pieces.  The amount of oil also needs to be controlled very well, or the extra oil or dry texture will ruin the flavor.  Our dish is served with shrimp, Chinese bok choy, and wet stir-fried with “ho fun” in a light brown sauce.
