Make

  1. Cook noodles according to package directions.
  2. Heat a saute pan or wok over high heat. Add oil. 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). Add sauce and cook until it begins to simmer and thicken, ~2 minutes.
  3. 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!

Not a big fan, but I ran out of soy sauce -- and not sure I had the right noodles (I used Thai that you had to warm up). I may try again using FRESH shrimp instead, not frozen. NOT precooked.

I doubled the sauce recipe and based on the comments used a little less than the 1/4 cup of soy sauce that the recipe called for. It was a huge hit, this will definitely be in our regular rotation. I may add in whatever leftover veggies I have on hand next time.

Full of great flavors. Easy to prepare. Had a hard time finding the noodles at my local store, but substituted with something else which was fine.

Allergic to shrimp (Hello, Cook Smarts!! Need shrimp substitutions for your many shrimp recipes), so I used chicken instead. Really good, but I think the chopped peanuts overpowered the overall taste of the dish. Will omit them next time. Otherwise, good!

I think the problem was, we omitted the shrimp and used salted peanuts. It was way too saucy and salty.
