Shrimp Chinese Stir Fry Noodles

Hello my dear lovelies!

A little while back, I presented my chicken Chinese stir fry noodles. Today, we’ll cook a variation of this dish: shrimp stir fry noodles.

For those who have tested or read the recipe, you might remember that you have to make a sauce with, among other ingredients, soja sauce and oyster sauce. This sauce can be easily kept a few weeks in your fridge.

My sauce jar was looking straight into my eyes each time I opened my fridge. It was high time to do something, to take things back into my own hands!! And bam!! Shrimp stir fry noodles!!

The recipe is of course very similar. The main difference lies in the making of a shrimp head sauce which will bring an extra yummy taste to your noodles. It does remain a super healthy recipe, easily and rapidly prepared (especially if your sauce jar is ready!) and absolutely delicious!!

So let’s go back to Asia!!

The recipe, Chef!

    Bonjour Emma, merci pour toutes vos délicieuses recettes.
    Nous allons débuter dans les recettes asiatiques.
    Où trouve-t-on les sauces sojas ou la sauce huitre ?
    Merci
    (on a le 1er ingrédient, des tagliatelles de riz !).

      Bonjour Josée, vous trouverez ça au rayon produits exotiques de votre supermarché. Sinon si vous avez une petite superette asiatique, c’est encore mieux. 😉
