When it is time to eat soak the rice noodles for 8 minutes and cook the shrimp for 3 minutes. That's really all there is to it. I'm sure it would be good with pork or chicken. We love that it is a gluten free dish.
Try it and prepare to be amazed.
Hoisin Noodle Dish--with Shrimp
1/2 cup soy sauce or Tamari (it is gluten free)
1/3 cup water
3 tablespoons sesame oil
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
3 tablespoons peanut butter
6 ounces thin rice noodles
3/4-1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
Grated carrots (I use a julienne peeler)
Chopped green onions
Chopped red pepper
Combine first 10 ingredients and whisk together--refrigerate. Prepare garnishes, Prepare the rice noodles according to package directions or pour boiling water over noodles let sit for about 8 minutes. Drain noodles.
Heat a large non stick skillet over medium heat. Pat the shrimp dry and season on both sides with salt and pepper. Cook the shrimp with about 1/3 cup of the sauce. Shrimp cooks in about 3-4 minutes, flipping once. Stay focused on this task--overcooked shrimp is not so good. Scoop the sauce and shrimp onto a plate and set aside.
Drain the noodles and add them to the hot skillet with most of the rest of the sauce--save some sauce for drizzling. Cook 3-4 minutes until the noodles have soaked up most o the sauce and become more tender.
Add the shrimp and heat through.
Serve the noodles and shrimp--put out your plate of veggie garnishes. Let each person add their own toppings. Add extra sauce if needed.
