PREP TIME: 20 MINUTES
COOK TIME: 10 MINUTES
1 package rice noodles
2 tbsp ground turmeric
1 1/4 tsp kosher salt, divided
1 lb shrimp, shelled and deveined
1 tsp ground pepper
2 tbsp olive oil, divided
1/4 cup diced red onion
3 garlic cloves, minted
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup chicken stock
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp chili garlic sauce
1 tbsp lime juice
Fresh basil chopped, for garnish
Fresh cilantro chopped, for garnish
salt and pepper to taste
In a large mixing bowl, combine turmeric, 1/4 tsp kosher salt, noodles, and enough boiling water to cover the rice noodles. Let the noodles soak in the water for about 20 minutes. Once softened, drain the noodles and set aside.
In a large bowl toss together shrimp, 1 tsp kosher salt and 1 tsp ground pepper. Heat a large skillet to medium high heat. Add 1 tbsp olive oil and the shrimp to the skillet. Saute the shrimp on the first side for about a minute, flip, then cook for another minute or until the shrimp are slightly pink and starting to curl up. Remove the shrimp from the skillet with a pair of tongs to a plate.
In the same skillet, turn the heat back to medium. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to the skillet and then add the red onion, garlic, and ginger. Sauté the veggies until softened about two minutes. Next, deglaze the skillet with white wine making sure to scrap up all the brown bits. Stir in the chicken stock, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, and lime juice. Let the sauce simmer for a few minutes and then add the noodles and shrimp back to the skillet. Toss together making sure the sauce has coated the noodles and the shrimp. Remove the skillet from the heat and garnish with fresh basil and cilantro. Serve immediately!
