Heat a saute pan or wok with cooking oil over medium-high heat. When oil begins to shimmer add snap peas, carrots, and white parts of green onions. Saute until carrots begin to soften, ~1 minute. Add shrimp and saute until shrimp is opaque, ~3 to 4 minutes (depending on size).
Add sauce and cook until it begins to simmer and thicken, ~2 minutes. Season with some salt and pepper.
Remove pan from heat and add noodles, tossing to coat. Top with peanuts, green parts of green onions, and a squeeze of lime juice. Serve with extra lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
I am allergic to shrimp, so I subbed a pound of chicken, cubed. It took a little longer to cook, but turned out great! Delicious and easy meal!!1 Helpful
Really tasty and easy to make! We skipped the chopped peanuts on top, and I'll probably cut out (or at least cut down) the peanut butter next time; I'm not a big fan and I could definitely tell the peanut butter was there. But even so, the meal was great. I ate the leftovers for lunch the next day and it was actually even better.0 Helpful
Very good! I mistakenly picked up wheat ramen noodles, but they worked well. Upped the spice a little, but otherwise made as written.0 Helpful
So good and super simple!0 Helpful
Did not add water to the sauce and was generous with sauce measurements. Thin sliced the carrots and found this preferable To shredded. Added onions to the stir fry. Used pad thai noddles, which worked well. Didn’t have peanuts, so used macadamia nuts that I had on hand, which worked well. Yum! This gets a ‘better than take out’ rating from me!0 Helpful
Expected this to be sweeter. Not a big fan of the sauce. It was pretty quick to make.0 Helpful
I think the prep that goes into this dish (which is manageable) is worth the reward.0 Helpful
