  2. To blanch the fresh egg noodles, in a pot of water over high heat, bring it to a boil, and quickly blanch the noodles for 15 seconds. Take them out, rinse under running water, and drain.
  3. To pan-fry the noodles, in a wok over high heat, and heat it up until smoking hot. Coat with 3 tablespoons of avocado oil, turn to medium heat, place in the noodles, and pan-fry until golden brown for about 3 minutes. Flip the noodles, add 1 tablespoon of avocado oil, and pan-fry until golden brown for another 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Stir and let it cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.
