1. There are two choices here. You can either mix the sauce and noodle all in one go or you can mix each portion per order. Mixing them individually allows for a more even mix and allow for better storing condition if there’s leftover.

2. I prefer to do it individually, so take a sizable portion of noodle (the amount depends on the person you’re serving for) and place in a large bowl. Add a generous amount of garlic sauce and some parsley and thoroughly mix.

3. Next, place the noodle and add shrimps
