Direc­tions

1. In a bowl, com­bine all sauce

in­gre­di­ents. Set aside.

2. In an­other bowl, com­bine the shrimp with the soy sauce. Re­frig­er­ate.

3. Place the noo­dles in a large bowl of boil­ing water. Let soak for about 10 min­utes; the noo­dles should be very al dente. Rinse and drain. Set aside.

4. In a wok or large skil­let over medium-high heat, soften the gar­lic, ginger and the white parts of the onions with the sam­bal oelek and the oil.

5. Add the peanut sauce, egg, shrimp mix­ture and noo­dles. Cook for 3 min­utes, stir­ring un­til the shrimp are cooked through and the sauce coats the noo­dles. Ad­just the sea­son­ing and add chicken broth, if needed. Sprin­kle with bean sprouts, the green parts of the onions and peanuts. Serve with lime wedges, if de­sired.
