This Shrimp Stir Fry is paired with saucy ramen noodles and fresh stir fried veggies for a take-out inspired dinner that's ready in under 30 minutes! Hooray!
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.
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.
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.
Now that the prepwork is done, this dish will come togehter quick!
Cook noodles via package instructions in boiling water, approx. 3-4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
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.
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.
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!
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.
