Simple & Delicious.

Asian Shrimp Salad, originally uploaded by razzieswirl.

Two of my favorite things. I love it when I can come home after rushing around all day and throw together something utterly delicious, that's healthy, and also takes minimal effort to prepare. I feel so accomplished, like I've done something grand. It's almost more satisfying then those meals that take forever to prepare/and or cook.

This recipe is a prime example of that. Most everything I had laying around (even the shrimp, which is not recommended on pizza by the way).

Recipe: Spicy Asian Shrimp Noodles


- 1 package rice noodles
- 1/2 lb. shrimp
- 2 medium carrots grated
- 1/8 cup spicy teriyaki sauce
- 1/8 cup sweet chilli sauce
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1/4 cup chopped scallions
- 1/4 lime juice
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. fish sauce
- 3 cloves garlic minced


1.Mix the teriyaki sauce, and the sweet chilli sauce together
2. Skewer the shrimp and grill on grill pan or bbq, brushing with teriyaki/chilli sauce (reserving the rest for the pasta).
3. Prepare noodles according to package (generally you boil water and then pour the boiling water over the noodles in a covered bowl, allowing to sit 2-5 mintues).
4. Put everthing between cilantro and garlic into a jar or shaker and shake well. Pour this over the pasta, toss.
5. Add shrimp and crushed peanuts if you like.

And viola!
Simple, easy, and really very scrumptious!
