Put the king prawns into a mixing bowl and add the marinade ingredients: garlic paste, ginger paste, black pepper, salt and dark soy sauce into the mixing bowl. Mix until evenly distributed and the prawns are fully coated in the marinade.
Set the prawns aside for later use and chop your vegetables (carrot, cabbage, garlic and spring onions) for later use.
Make the chow mein sauce by mixing together oyster sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, sesame oil, chilli sauce and salt in a small bowl.
Heat the wok or frying pan on a medium to high heat and add oil. When hot, add the garlic and spring onions and stir fry for 30 seconds.
Add the prawns and stir-fry for 2 minutes before adding the vegetables and stir-frying for a further 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the egg noodles to the wok or frying pan and mix for 1 minute. Add the chow mein sauce and mix until the sauce is evenly distributed.
