Shrimp Rice Noodles

 

 

 

 

You should know by now that I love seafood. I love everything about it and I LOVE cooking with seafood.

 

Today’s dish was inspired by a dish called Pad Thai. I had black rice noodles laying around for over a month, and I wanted to do a dish that’s fragrant, delicious and easy to do and doesn’t take that much time. so I made the following:

 

Ingredients:

  1. Rice Noodles (any type)
  2. Spring Onions
  3. White Onions or the white tip of spring onions
  4. Shrimps
  5. Chili Flakes
  6. Lemon and Lemon Zest
  7. Salt and Pepper
  8. Garlic
  9. Fish sauce (or Diluted soy sauce)
  10. Olive Oil
  11. Paprika
Directions:
  1. Start with soaking the rice noodles with cold water, then hot water for 10-15 minutes, then cold water again. Or just soak it with room temperature water for couple of hours if you’re lazy like me :)
  2. In a skillet or Wok, start with sauteing the chopped onions until they’reĀ translucent. Add the garlicĀ and keep stirring, then add the salt, pepper and paprika and toss in the shrimps and keep mixing till they all turn pink then add the chili flakes.
  3. add the fish sauce, lemon juice, and toss in the noodles. keep mixing until they absorb all the flavors then add the lemon zest.
Once you’re done, you can taste the noodles and adjust the flavors to your liking. I like loads of lemon with this dish so I add 1 full lemon and around half a teaspoon of lemon zest. I also add the spring onions in two stages. half of it goes in the skillet in the final stage and the other half to garnish the dish.
I like my rice noodles a little bit softer than what others like, so if you don’t want it to be too soft, don’t over cook it or don’t soak it with hot water prior to cooking.
Try it! It’s awesome :)
Bon Appetit!
Basma.
