Spicy Noodles

Making restaurant-style shrimp noodles bowls at home is way easier than you might think.

The beautiful thing about this recipe is that you can use whatever veggies you happen to have on hand. You can also substitute chicken breast or chicken thigh for the shrimp.

What You Need

noodle bowl ingredients
  • Rice Noodles. This recipe calls for wide rice noodles, which are found in the ethnic section of most grocery stores.
  • Soy sauce. Soy sauce or tamari can be used in this recipe. If you’re avoiding soy, you can use coconut aminos.
  • Sesame oil. Sauté the shrimp and veggies in a few teaspoons of sesame oil.
  • Shrimp. You can buy cleaned tail-off shrimp for the most effortless preparation. I sometimes like to use tail-on shrimp in this recipe as well.
  • Veggies. Ginger, garlic, onions, and bell peppers make up the stir-fried vegetables. You can add in more of your favorites, like snow peas and carrots.
  • Aromatics. Basil, mint, and green onion add herbaceous freshness to this spicy noodle bowl.
  • Fresh vegetable toppings. Cucumbers and beans sprouts add a fantastic crunch to these spicy noodles.
  • Limes. Freshly squeezed lime juice adds a fresh burst of lime flavor that works well with the spiciness in this bowl.
