Recipe

Once you have gathered the ingredients, this dish comes together quickly to create a fast weeknight supper. Good with a fresh salad of bean sprouts and shredded carrot, tossed with lime juice.

Yield : Makes 4 servings
Prep Time :  20 mins
Cooking Time :  10 mins

Ingredients

  • 12 oz (350g) flat rice noodles
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 small hot red chile, seeded and finely chopped
  • 9 oz (250g) large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 4 shallots, finely chopped
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp Thai fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 9 oz (250g) bean sprouts
  • 4 scallions, white and green parts, sliced
  • 1 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 1 lime cut into 4 wedges, to serve

Directions

1. Soak the noodles in a bowl of hot water to cover for about 15 minutes, or until soft. Drain.

2. Meanwhile, heat a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add 2 tbsp of the oil, then the cilantro and chile. Immediately add the shrimp and stir-fry until the shrimp look opaque around the edges, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate.

3. Add the remaining oil to the wok. Add the shallots and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the eggs and sugar and cook, stirring, for 1 minute, until the eggs are scrambled.

4. Stir in the oyster sauce, fish sauce, and lime juice. Add the noodles, bean sprouts, and shrimp. Stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the scallions and ½ cup of the peanuts, and stir-fry for 1 minute. Sprinkle with the remaining peanuts and garnish with lime wedges to serve.
