Make

  1. Cook noodles according to package directions.
  2. Heat a saute pan or wok with oil over medium-high heat. When oil begins to shimmer add snap peas and carrots. Saute until carrots begin to soften, ~1 minute. Add shrimp and saute until shrimp is opaque, ~3 to 4 minutes (depending on size).
  3. Add sauce and cook until it begins to simmer and thicken, ~2 minutes. Season with some salt and pepper.
  4. Remove pan from heat and add noodles, tossing to coat. Top with peanuts and a squeeze of lime juice. Serve with extra lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!

I subbed chicken for the shrimp. Loved the flavor of the sauce and how easy it was to make.

Very yummy. I used high-protein, no press tofu. However, Cooksmarts and I have a consistently different idea about how much sauce things should have. I need to remember to double all sauces and dressings bc apparently, I like things saucy! :)

I used 16oz of rice noodles, cut the shrimp & sugar snap peas, and doubled the sauce to stretch the meal. I also subbed in Chinese sesame paste instead of pb. It was really good!

This was just not a hit. Turns out we don't care for peanut butter flavor in noodle dishes.
