❓Recipe FAQ's

What if I can't find dark soy sauce?

This bang bang sauce really does benefit from the bold and robust flavour of dark, but you can absolutely use light soy sauce. The dark just has a deeper, richer flavour.

I have extra sauce. Can I save it to make this recipe again?

Absolutely! I often will double a sauce recipe to make sure that I have leftovers. It can be saved in the fridge for a few weeks.

Can I use other types of noodles?

Yes, you can use any type of long noodle like egg noodles or udon noodles.

Is there a substitute for oyster sauce?

You can use hoisin sauce or teriyaki sauce as a substitute for oyster sauce.

      Amazing! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!


    • Laura

      Hiya, red onion and peanuts are not mentioned un the ingredients but are un the method. How much of each do I need please?


      • Deborah Rainford

        Hi Laura, So sorry I missed that. It's a whole red onion just because they really shrink when cooked. And 3 tablespoons of chopped peanuts for the topping. Dry roasted or honey roasted peanuts both work really well. I've updated the recipe card with the quantities now. Thank you so much!
