Shrimp Stir Fry with Ramen Noodles

This shrimp stir fry recipe is saucy, scrumptious, and speedy too!

Woohoo alliteration!

Seriously though, this recipe is one of those “print now and make ASAP” sort of ordeals.

Though it could technically yield 4 typical servings, Paul and I agreed that two ginormous portions were perfect for us for dinner! We downed the entire pan, plus noodles, in record time and already have it on the menu again for next week!

I regret nothing.

Saucy Stir-Fry Shrimp and Vegetables

Saucy Shrimp Stir Fry with Ramen Noodles

I’m so crazy excited for you guys to try this recipe!

The sauce is this magical blend of soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, and garlic with a little kiss of lemon juice to brighten things up.

I like to add a bit of crushed red pepper flakes into the sweet, sticky sauce to give it some heat, as well as some Sriracha chili sauce or garlic chili sauce. Give me all the spicy things!

You can choose between mild and spicy here by either skipping it entirely or adding extra!

It’s beyond perfect for slathering over shrimp and veggies!

You can keep the sauce thin or add a little cornstarch (or arrowroot powder) to thicken it up into a sticky take-out style sauce.

Stir Fry Serving Suggestions

The saucy stir-fried shrimp and vegetables basically serve as a main dish and side dish in one.

To round out the meal even further I like to toss the stir fry and sauce with some curly ramen noodles. It’s total comfort food and tastes like fancy takeout!

When I’m not using ramen noodles, I absolutely love this shrimp and vegetable stir fry served with fluffy white rice You could also serve it with brown rice, fried rice, or even Quinoa Fried Rice.

Cauliflower Rice also makes an excellent pairing. You can even add extra vegetables to the mix!

Round out the meal with some sweet chili edamame (or spicy edamame) and get ready to faceplant!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound raw shrimp
  • 1 medium red bell pepper , sliced
  • 2 carrots , julienned
  • 1-2 cups snow peas , ends trimmed if desired
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 2-3 oz uncooked ramen noodles
  • 1-2 tsp sesame oil for sautéing
  • 2-3 TBSP sliced green onion for topping
  • Sriracha or chili garlic sauce, for topping (optional)

STIR FRY SAUCE

Instructions

  1. Clean and peel fresh raw shrimp. Thaw first if using frozen. Tails may be left on or off based on preference. Any size works here; simply adjust cook time to compliement shrimp size.

  2. Prep veggies. I always suggest slicing carrots and bell peppers thin for faster cooking, and also chopping broccoli into small bites. Snow peas can be kept whole or cut in half.

  3. Next mix up the sauce. Combine minced garlic with lemon juice, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, and crushed red pepper flakes. Whisk and set aside. In a small separate bowl, stir together corn starch and water.

  4. Now that the prepwork is done, this dish will come togehter quick!

  5. Cook noodles via package instructions in boiling water, approx. 3-4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.

  6. Heat a large wok or skillet to medium-high heat with sesame oil. Add veggies and stir fry for 2 minutes for still-crisp veggies or a few extra minutes for more tender vegetables.

  7. Add shrimp to the vegetables. Add sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes or until shrimp are visibly opaque/curled and cooked through. Add corn starch and cook for an additional minute to thicken the sauce. Alternatively, if your pan seems a bit crowded, the shrimp can be cooked on their own in a separate skillet then added to the dish at the end.

  8. Add ramen noodles and mix well. Adjust spices/sauce to taste if needed. Top with chopped green onion and drizzle with sriracha or chili sauce if desired <— always a must for me! Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you plan on adding more veggies, extra shrimp, or a larger amount of noodles to this dish, simply double the sauce so you have enough. Easy peasy!

If you have ginger handy, it’s a marvelous addition to the sauce. Sriracha is also a spicy and delicious mix-in.

    Love the concept of this recipe; I mean, how can you go wrong with ramen in any form? The primary issue I ran into was cooking the shrimp. I’d recommend cooking them in a separate dish rather than mixing them in with the rest of the veggies. It was hard to get an even cook since there was already so much in the stir fry pan, which resulted in some chewiness.

    • Ramen is for sure my love language right now, lol! If your pan seems crowded the shrimp can 100% be cooked on their own then added. I’ll add a note in the recipe for those who don’t have a lot of room to cook it all evenly together! I think the cook time may vary a bit on the size of shrimp used which may be a good factor to note. Do you remember what size shrimp you used? xoxo
