Before you start

You will need a wok or skillet.

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Cook the noodles in a large pot of salted boiling water until they are al dente, about 3 min. Rinse the noodles in cold water to stop the cooking process and drain thoroughly. Set aside. Mix the soy sauce and fish sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat one tablespoon of the oil in a wok or skillet over high heat. Add the pork and cook, stirring constantly, until it is lightly browned, about 4 min. Remove the pork from the pan, using a slotted spoon and set aside on a plate. Add the shrimp and cook, with some stirring, until the shrimp lose their gray colour and turn pink, 3-4 min. Set the shrimp aside on the plate with the pork.
  3. Add the remaining oil. When the oil is hot, add the onion and green pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion begins to brown, about 5 min. Stir in the garlic, ginger, and chili pepper. Cook 1 min with stirring.
  4. Add the curry powder and sugar. Cook a few seconds with stirring, then pour in the noodles. Cook 1 min with some stirring. Add the soy mixture. Return the pork and shrimp to the skillet. Pour in the water to allow the noodles to separate. Continue cooking, with occasional stirring, until the noodles start to turn golden-coloured, 5-7 min.
  5. Adjust the seasoning, garnish with the optional scallions, peanuts, and cilantro, then serve on the warmed dishes.
