Sweet & Sour Shrimp Thai Noodle
One evening my family had nothing for dinner, so I decided to whip together something from the freezer. I came across some frozen pre-cooked shrimp in the freezer. I grabbed that and remembered I had some fresh vegetables in the fridge, a stir fry sweet and sour sauce and these Thai Rice Noodles in my closet. So I decided to throw these together and create a dish that I am not obsessed with!
½ the bag (16 oz bag- 8 oz was used) ‘A Taste of Thai Rice Noodles: straight cut’
9 oz Precooked Shrimp cut in half
1 whole chopped Yellow Pepper
1 ½ cups cut broccoli
9 Oz Baby Carrots cut into thirds
8 tablespoons Kikkoman – Sweet and Sour Sauce
1 Tablesoon vegetable Oil
1 Tsp Oregano
1 Tsp Sesame Seeds
The first step is to follow any directions the noodles have. Mine said to soak them for 25-30 minutes in hot water. After that was done I heated the Oil with a little water in a large frying pan and cooked the raw broccoli, carrots, and yellow pepper. Once they were steamed and cooked I added the noodles and sweet and sour sauce. Once they were all heated I added the thawed shrimp, oregano, and sesame seeds. You can add more or less for taste of anything, and if it starts to get dry or stick to the pan add some more oil to the mix. I kept mixing it to be sure the sweet and sour sauce was mixed on everything. Feel free to add different vegetables, or like I did just add what you have in your fridge. Enjoy.
This is such an easy thing to make and so delicious, my whole family loved it! The calories are not bad either! I approximated that this dish served a very big helping for up to 6 people. So the calories per serving if split among 6 people (with these specific ingredients) is about 300 calories per serving (42 carbs, 3 g fat, 12 g protein, and 274 sodium)
