Recipe: Peanuty Noodles with Shrimp

I didn’t like this dish at all. I didn’t even finish a “tasters portion” before I gave up calling this dish a complete failure. So why am I posting it then? My boyfriend loved it. He ate the entire thing himself over three meals and forbid me from even thinking about throwing it away. If it was good enough for him maybe there is another soul out there who would like this recipe.

Peanuty Noodles with Shrimp
Serves 4
  1. 12oz somen noodles
  2. 1 lb shrimp
  3. 1 pepper, chopped roughly
  4. 1 onion, chopped roughly
  5. 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  6. 1/3 c peanut butter
  7. 1 1/2 c chicken broth
  8. 2 tbs soy sauce
  9. 2 tbs Sriracha
  10. 2 tbs peanut oil
  11. 2 tsb fish sauce
  1. Cook the somen noodles. Cooking somen seems a bit weird but you basically boil a pot of water, dump it over the noodles, wait 3-4 minutes until they are soft and then drain the water and rise the noodles (a cloudly water will form - that's good). Set them aside.
  2. In a sauce pot combine all the ingredients for the sauce, mix gently and let simmer for about 15 minutes.
  3. In a pan, saute the onions, garlic and peppers in a pan with a small amount of oil.
  4. When the vegetables are sauteed to your liking add the shirmp and cook until bright pink (about 2 minutes on each side).
  5. Add a cup of the sauce to the shrimp and reduce for about 8-10 minutes.
  6. Serve over somen noodles with extra sauce or spice if needed
  1. Sorry, I don't even have a finished picture of this dish because I disliked it so much. ^^;; Better luck next time
