This easy stir-fried rice noodle recipe is bursting with Asian flavors and delicious shrimp.

This recipe is so easy to make. If you do a lot of Asian-style cooking at home, then you probably have all the ingredients needed for this recipe in your pantry already. If not, don’t worry! Most of the ingredients are fairly easy to find at most grocery stores or online. 

 

Key features and tips

The most time-consuming part is stir-frying all of the vegetables separately since they all have varying cook times. This results in vegetables that aren’t mushy and still have the perfect texture. You could also adjust the cooking time to be longer or shorter depending on your preference of how done you like your veggies. So feel free to adjust the cook times to your preferred veggie doneness. 

We used shrimp in this recipe, however, you can substitute it out for any protein you like. You could use chicken, beef, pork, or even tofu. Or you could even simply just load up on more vegetables instead for a meatless Monday-styled meal.

How to make our easy stir-fried rice noodles with shrimp

Step 1: Soak the rice noodles

Put the package of rice noodles in cold water. Make sure the water covers all of the noodles. Let it soak for 20 minutes.

 

Step 2: Prepare the stir-fry sauce

In a small bowl, mix everything together for the stir-fry sauce. Set aside.

 

Step 3: Time to stir-fry the shrimp and each vegetable separately

Place a frying pan on medium-high heat. Add a little bit of oil to the bottom of the pan. We are going to stir-fry all of the ingredients separately since they all have slightly different cooking times. First, we’ll stir-fry the shrimp until opaque and pink. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate. (Note: You can set everything aside on the same plate in steps 3-6 to save dishes.)

In the same frying pan, add in a little more oil. Add in the sliced cabbage strips. Stir-fry for about 5 minutes and add in a pinch of salt. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Add a bit more oil to the bottom of the pan. Stir-fry the carrots for about 4 minutes and add in a pinch of salt. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Add a bit more oil to the bottom of the pan. Stir-fry the celery for 3 minutes and add in a pinch of salt. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Finally, add a bit more oil to the pan and add in the sliced green onions for 2 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.

 

Step 4: Drain and cut the noodles

After the noodles have soaked for 20 minutes, drain the noodles. With kitchen shears or a knife, cut the noodles so that they’re about 6 inches in length.

 

Step 5: Stir-fry the noodles

In the same frying pan you cooked the vegetables and shrimp on medium-high heat, add a bit of oil to the bottom of the pan. Add in the rice noodles and stir-fry for about 10 minutes.

 

Step 6: Add everything back into the pan with the noodles

Add all of the stir-fried vegetables and shrimp back into the frying pan with the noodles. Add the stir-fry sauce. Continue stir-frying everything together for about 3 minutes.
