Shrimp rice noodles stir fry recipe inspired from Thai Pad See Ew, wide rice noodles are briefly stir fried with shrimp, veggies and a spicy sauce, flavorful, delicious and gluten free!
This shrimp and rice noodles is a gluten free recipe.
A note about the rice noodles, for this recipe I chose to use the large ones, those I like best. Read carefully the cooking instructions on the pack as mine were to be soaked in water for an hour than cooked in a large volume of boiling water for 4 minutes! This is a Thai inspired recipe, my favorite cuisine. I just sauteed a few bamboo shoots, shiitake mushrooms and shrimp, made a delicious sauce and assembled with the rice noodles.
This stir fry is a delicious and versatile dish, budget friendly, you can make it with the vegetables you have on hand, zucchini, cabbage, bean sprouts, etc. It can also be made with pork, chicken or tofu.
Personally, I always prefer to use raw shrimps, whether fresh or frozen, as I like the flavor and texture better but feel free to use cooked shrimps.
