Shrimp Thai Noodles Stir-Fry is a gluten-free dish made with store-bought stir-fry rice noodles, shrimp, fresh vegetables, lime, sugar, and teriyaki sauce. A weeknight dinner favorite that can be ready in less than 30 minutes!
Shrimp Thai Noodles Stir-Fry is one of our favorite homemade Asian dishes that can be made in less than 30 minutes… the recipe is not authentically Thai but the noodles used in the recipe are. Hence the title of the recipe — which uses simple ingredients such as local store-bought stir-fry rice noodles, shrimp, fresh vegetables, lime, sugar, and teriyaki sauce (or soy sauce as a substitute). Yep, really simple yet quite delish!!!
This is a healthy recipe because of the cooking methods involved — boiling and stir-frying. In addition, it is gluten-free since noodles are made from rice.
Something to prepare and enjoy on busy weekdays. The result? A real hit among both adults and children.
If you are not a fan of shrimp, no problem! You can use use other sources of protein instead such as tofu, small chunks of chicken or beef. It is up to you — although the time to cook the protein of your choice may increase a bit compared to shrimp, which requires about 3-4 minutes.
Basically all one has to do is to boil water and let noodles soak in it for about 8-10 minutes, then drain. Heat a bit of oil in a wok and cook sliced mushroom, jalapeno, and onions, shredded carrots, and minced garlic for around a couple of minutes. Then add the shrimp and let cook for about 3-4 minutes or just until turning pink. Add a mixture of fresh lime juice, sugar, and teriyaki sauce (or soy sauce if preferred) and stir in the cooked, drained noodles.
See? Easy peasy!
Hubby and kids are big fans of these Shrimp Thai Noodles Stir-fry… and so am I. Recipe serves 5 to 6 but in my household it actually barely serves 4. That’s right, second helpings are unavoidable. 😉 Just like with several of our other weeknight meal recipes.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and will include this one into your cooking repertoire. 🙂
Enjoy dinner… and life made easy!
