Shrimp Tossed in Noodles & Spicy Peanut Sauce #sikandalouscuisine

Spicy Peanut Sauce Recipe adapted from Epicurious

The star of this dish is the peanut sauce - with those brilliant flavors in it you cant go wrong . Use this sauce with noodles , on satay , stir fry shrimp , fish or even mushrooms. Adjust sweet , sour and chilies as per taste .

2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil - I used Sesame oil.
Scallions​ / Spring Onions​ - C
hopped fine

Cloves​ - Chopped

Tablespoon Grated Ginger.​


​Cup Soy Sauce - Adjust .

​Tamarind Pulp - Adjust.

​Tablespoons Brown Sugar - Adjust

​3 Tablespoon #Veeb Chili Garlic Sauce.
Finely Sliced Red Chili- Optional​

    1. 1. Heat oil stir fry onions , garlic and ginger until fragrant - maybe one minute then add all other ingredient , bring to a rolling boil , simmer for 5-6 minutes till sauce thicken . You can adjust all flavors even after you have made the sauce . It's that simple and forgiving.
      Sauce may be made up to 3 days ahead and chilled, covered. If sauce is too thick after chilling, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons hot water until sauce reaches desired consistency.
    1. ​Spicy Peanut Sauce Shrimp Noodles ​:
      6 Large Prawns , retain the tails.
      Noodles - Enough for two servings , boil as per pack.
      1 Cup Vegetables of choice - I used sliced baby corn , grated carrots , sliced mushrooms.
      Suggested Garnish :
      Roasted Peanuts.
      Chopped Spring Onions.
      Fried Garlic.
      Basil Leaves.

      1. Heat oil in a wok , stir fry prawns for a minute , add the vegetables , stir fry another minute.
      2. Add  1/2 cup Spicy Peanut Sauce , on high heat cook another minute , toss in the noodles , cook a minute or two , adjust the amount of Spicy Peanut Sauce at this stage.
      3. By now prawns will be cooked , vegetable still crunchy and everything well coated with Spicy Peanut Sauce ! Garnish and dig in ! Super yum !​
