Ingredients

  • 10 oz peeled and deveined shrimp equals to 20 oz raw shrimp
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • 3 tbsp canola oil divided
  • 4 oz asparagus
  • 4 oz red onion sliced
  • 4 oz cabbage shredded
  • 2 oz bok choy
  • 2 oz red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 tbsp garlic chopped
  • 14 oz boiled egg noodles equals to 7 oz dry egg noodles
  • 2 tbsp scallion sliced
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

Instructions

  • Make the sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together 1 tsp cornstarch, 1 tsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp sesame oil, 1/2 tsp ground pepper, 1/2 tsp paprika, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp hoisin sauce, and 1 tsp sriracha until well combined. Set aside.
    Step 1: Make the sauce.
  • Heat 1 tbsp canola oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add 4 oz asparagus and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
    Step 2: Stir-fry the asparagus.
  • Add 4 oz red onion. Cook and stir occasionally for 30 seconds.
    Step 3: Sauté the onions.
  • Add 4 oz cabbage, 2 oz bok choy, and 2 oz red bell pepper to the pan. Cook and stir constantly until the vegetables start to soften, about 4 - 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
    Step 4: Cook the cabbage, bok choy, and pepper.
  • Heat up the remaining 2 tbsp canola oil. Add 1 tbsp garlic and sauté for 30 seconds until fragrant.
    Step 5: Sauté the garlic.
  • Add 10 oz shrimp. Cook and gently stir the shrimp for 1 minute before adding 14 oz egg noodles to the pan. Stir the noodles until the excess water has evaporated — about 5 - 7 minutes.
    Step 6: Cook the shrimp and the noodles.
  • Return the stir-fried vegetables to the pan. Cook for another 2 minutes.
    Step 7: Return the vegetables to the pan.
  • Remove from heat and pour the prepared sauce over the noodle mixture.
    Step 8: Remove from the heat and pour the sauce.
  • Toss the noodles with the sauce until coated evenly. Sprinkle with 2 tbsp scallion and 1 tbsp sesame seeds. Serve hot.
    Step 9: Garnish and Serve.
