Cantonese Seafood Crispy Yee Mein

This is a relatively simple version to make the crispy noodle by using the Air Fryer.

I bought the noodle from oriental mart, and make it crispier using the Air Fryer without oil.

Usually, in the restaurant, all these noodles have to deep fry under oil to make it crispy.

With the help of the Air Fryer, you’ve cut out all the hassle of cleaning the kitchen after cooking.

This is the Air Fryer I am using at the moment. Might consider upgrading to a better grade soon.
