Pat noodles and scallops dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture before pan-frying. They'll be nicely crisp.

Everything in this dish was good but there was too much sauce for the noodles. Next time I will make 1/3 the amount of sauce and pour that over the scallops leaving the noodles just panfroed without the sauce. It will taste more like an authentic Chinese restauarant dish.
