Garlic Butter Noodles

A favorite Vietnamese dish of mine is Garlic Butter Noodles. Not until recently did I try searching for  a recipe to try. I was surprised at how easy it was to make! You only need a few ingredients, all of which I had in my kitchen cabinet already. The key ingredients are the chopped garlic and oyster sauce, so don’t skip those steps!

Try pairing these noodles with our Miso Marinated Salmon recipe.
