Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 package Yakisoba Stir Fry Noodles, cooked (17.76 oz.)*
  • 1 cup frozen cooked shrimp, tail off, shell off, size: 91/110 (add more shrimp as desired)
  • 1 cup carrots, julienned
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 large red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1/3 cup unsalted peanuts, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. avocado oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Thai Peanut Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter, creamy
  • 3 Tbsp. soy sauce, low sodium
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar (seasoned)
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. sriracha
  • 2 tsp. chili garlic sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper chili flakes (optional)
  • green onions, garnish

Instructions

  • Make the Thai peanut sauce. Gather all ingredients and whisk together in a medium sized bowl. This recipe makes 1 cup Thai peanut sauce. Set aside. (*Note: the sauce is thick. Add a little water to it to thin it out, if desired).
  • Heat avocado oil over medium high heat in a wok or large frying pan. Once hot, add in carrots & bell pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. I like to add in about 1/4 cup Thai peanut sauce with the veggies too while they cook. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add in shrimp and noodles (cook noodles according to package directions before adding in), and cook for another 4-5 minutes. Once shrimp is cooked, add in 1/2 cup sauce and peas. Start with 1/2 cup of sauce, and continue to add more sauce until the noodles are coated with as much sauce as you'd like.
  • Garnish with chopped peanuts and green onions. Enjoy!

Notes

  • You can use rice noodles, ramen or even brown rice in place of the stir fry noodles. Follow the cooking directions on the package.
  • Feel free to use different protein instead of shrimp: tofu or chicken are yummy options!
