Spicy Shrimp with Peanut Noodles

This meal consists of sweet peanut noodles topped with spicy shrimp and crunchy water chestnuts. I absolutely loved it!

This meal has just the right amount of spice for me. If you don't like spicy dishes, gradually add the hot chili sauce, taste, and adjust the amount of spice according to your taste buds.

Spicy Shrimp with Peanut Noodles
·½ lb pre-cooked shrimp
·½ cup cornstarch
·2 TBS extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
·1 - 8oz. can water chestnuts, drained
·1-2 TBS Sriracha hot chili sauce
·1 TBS lime juice
·1 recipe Thai Peanut Noodles

Prepare Thai Peanut Noodles according to recipe. In a medium bowl, toss shrimp with cornstarch. In a large non-stick skillet, heat EVOO and add shrimp. Cook for a 2-3 minutes on each side, until they begin to brown. Add water chestnuts, hot chili sauce, and lime juice. Stir well and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until flavors are mixed well together.

Serve spicy shrimp and water chestnuts on top of a bed of peanut noodles.
