  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon five spice powder
  • 2 x 1kg (or 1 x 1.5-2kg) whole snapper
  • 200g pkt Chang's Egg Noodles
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) Chang's Oyster Sauce
  • Sunflower oil, for deep-frying
  • 3 long red chillies, seeds removed, finely sliced
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch spring onions, finely sliced (white and green parts separated)


  • Step 1
    Combine the flour, five spice powder and 1 teaspoon sea salt in a large dish. Coat the fish in flour mixture and set aside.
  • Step 2
    Cook the egg noodles according to packet instructions and drain well.
  • Step 3
    Add sesame oil and toss. Set aside.
  • Step 4
    Combine soy, sugar and half the oyster sauce in a bowl, then set aside.
  • Step 5
    Heat enough sunflower oil to cover the fish in a large wok over medium heat (if oil is too hot, the fish won’t cook through). Immerse fish in oil and cook for 10-15 minutes (depending on size) until cooked through and crisp-skinned.
  • Step 6
    Transfer fish to a large platter and set aside in a warm place. Carefully drain off and discard most of the oil.
  • Step 7
    Return the wok to high heat and add the chilli, ginger, garlic and whites of the spring onions. Stir-fry quickly until crisp, then remove from the wok. Add a little more oil to wok if necessary, then add noodles and stir-fry until heated through. Stir in sauce mixture then quickly toss through chilli mixture.
  • Step 8
    Divide noodles evenly among 4 serving bowls and top with pieces of fish. Drizzle with the remaining oyster sauce and serve garnished with the green part of the spring onions.
