  1. Heat a large pot of salted water over high heat. When boiling rapidly, add the spaghetti and cook until al dente. When the pasta is al dente, reserve 30 ml of the spaghetti cooking liquid.

  2. In the meantime, in a wok or large frying pan over high heat, add the oil. Once the oil is hot add the garlic and chili then stir until fragrant . Then add shrimp, squid and baby corn and stir until the sea food is 50% cooked. Now add soy sauce, fish sauce, oyster sauce and sugar. Stir and simmer for 2 minutes or until the sauce is well combined and thickened slightly.
