Sesame Shrimp Noodles Recipe

All you need is twenty minutes for a delicious bowl of sesame shrimp noodles. Ready? Set? Let’s cook!

Lately, I’ve been on a noodle kick. Restaurant menus and the internet are filled with all kinds of noodle bowls so I wanted to join in the fun too. If you have twenty minutes you can make these delicious Sesame Shrimp Noodles. Forget the take out tonight!

I am lucky that there are several Asian grocery stores in my town. I can get any type of ingredient from exotic rice to fish sauces to Asian plum sauce. The choices are endless.

The funny thing is that when I make these noodle bowls, I use simple linguine. The flat noodles hold the sauce well and they are the perfect accompaniment to the shrimp and veggies.

This recipe includes shrimp, which is another thing I really love. I love it so much that if you look in my freezer you will see at least three bags of frozen shrimp in there. What other protein can you defrost under running water in five minutes? I get the cleaned shrimp without tails so there is less work for me. Cooking them is as easy as it gets.

So remember how I said my Asian grocery stores carry everything? This recipe is garnished with sesame seeds and my grocery store had black ones. How cool is that?

There is no need to go crazy finding black sesame seeds in your stores as regular sesame seeds work fine. They actually taste quite similar but I thought my dish looked pretty exotic with these black sesame seeds.

I also use frozen, shelled edamame in this recipe but if you’d rather, regular green peas can be used. Either way, it’s one easy- to- make dish to have for dinner.

This dish includes noodles, shrimp and veggies, so it includes all food groups. Since there’s very little work involved in preparing this meal, I like to make a homemade dessert such as chocolate pudding or apple pie cupcakes. And if it’s the weekend, maybe even enjoy a Moscow Mule before dinner.  Cheers to a really delicious meal!
