Celebrate the Chinese New Year with a spectacular noodle stir fry that is way better than any take-away.

It’s super easy to make, quick, and tastes like heaven. Forget about instant noodles that have no nutritional value, this is restaurant-style food that anyone can make.

I love absolutely Chinese food, it’s tasty, healthy and so super flavourful. Stir-frying is a great way of cooking, most nutrients are kept in, and the veggies keep their lovely crunch and colour.

Throw some shrimp (prawns) in, and the ultimate Asian dish is created: the almighty spicy shrimp stir fry with noodles.

Ginger, garlic and spring onions are the super trio that can’t possibly be left out.

If you fancy something different for lunch or supper, give this dish a try. If you like spicy food, do not be afraid to use as much chilli as you like.

Or, if spicy food is not your thing, just omit it alltogether, you will still get a fabulous meal, guaranteed.

If you fancy other noodle recipes, how about my Beef and Broccoli Noodles? Or my amazing Sesame Noodles? I can never say no to Udon Miso Noodle Soup either.

How do you make spicy shrimp stir fry with noodles?

If you don’t have a wok, not to worry! I don’t have one anymore, and this can be cooked to perfection in any other pan you have.

First, we need to cook the shrimp. Be very careful, as the shimp cooks really quickly, and we don’t want to overcook it.

  • heat up the oil, add the spring onions, garlic and ginger, and stir fry for about 30 seconds until fragrant
  • add the shrimp, season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper, and stir fry for 1-2 minutes until it changes the colour to pinkish
  • remove the shrimp and set aside
  • add the carrot and mangetout (snow peas), stir fry for 2-3 minutes until they soften a bit, then add the shrimp back to the pan together with the sauces
  • toss in the cooked noodles and cook for a further 1-2 minutes

Trust me, this dish is as easy as it sounds!

What kind of noodles do you use for stir frying?

It can be any kind of noodles. I love the egg noodles, they are super tasty, and they are ready in about 5 minutes.

But feel free to use any noodles of your choice, even ramen, but without any of those nasty ingredients they come in the package with.

Pre-cooked noodles are also fine, just add after the shrimp and veggies are cooked.

If cook the noodles, make sure you drain, rinse and add sesame oil to them before tossing them in. The noodles tend to stick together badly if left out for a bit of time.
