What’s better than Garlic Noodles?
SHRIMP GARLIC NOODLES.
Shrimp Garlic Noodles are very popular now in many Asian restaurants here in Southern California. Everywhere I go, there is a garlic noodle dish on the menu.
I first published my Crustacean-inspired garlic noodles recipe back in 2008, which was 10 years ago. Sometimes I really think that these Asian restaurants copied my recipe, as it has happened many times in the past!
Anyway, garlic noodles recipe is one of the most popular recipes on my site. Over the years, I have simplified the recipe to a few versions.
This Shrimp Garlic Noodles recipe is very easy but crazy delicious. You really have to try it.
Which Noodles to Use?
There are many kinds of fresh noodles in Asian stores or supermarkets; it can be overwhelming if you are not familiar. For the best results, you want to use fresh Taiwanese-style yellow noodles. Below is the picture of the noodles.
The noodles are coated in oil and yellowish in color. The noodles are packaged in a clear plastic bag. They are the best for garlic noodles.
Fresh Noodles vs. Dry Noodles
If you have an Asian store, definitely buy fresh noodles. If Asian stores are not accessible, you can always use spaghetti for this recipe.
To be honest, I often use spaghetti when I make garlic noodles. It’s easy and convenient.
Ingredients of Garlic Noodles
Here are the key ingredients:
- Oyster Sauce
- Grated Parmesan Cheese
You can’t make decent garlic noodles if you don’t have proper Asian seasonings.
I used three (3) different kinds of sauces to make the garlic butter sauce, but over the years, I have simplified it down to oyster sauce.
This is oyster sauce or oyster-flavored sauce, the pillar of many Asian recipes. You need to have a bottle of this if you want to make delicious Asian food. I recommend Lee Kum Kee brand. Click here to buy.
How to Make the Shrimp?
The shrimp is the star of this recipe. Buy jumbo-sized or medium-sized shell on shrimp. Keep the shell but devein the shrimp. Saute the shrimp with garlic, soy sauce, sugar and scallion. It’s really that simple.
For serving, you just add a few shrimp on top of the noodles, and you will have an utterly scrumptious serving of Shrimp Garlic Noodles.
