I really enjoy making fresh dressings and sauces – I think they make such a huge difference in the taste of the meal! And contrary to what a lot of people think, they really don’t take much time to make! My sweet chili, soy, ginger, lime and garlic sauce takes just minutes to make – minutes that are worth the flavors that the sauce adds to the whole dish! These noodles are simply scrumptious!
125g brown rice noodles (organic)
200g shrimp, peeled
1 red pepper, de-seeded and sliced into strips
100g green beans
Small bunch coriander
4 tbsp sweet chili sauce
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 cm ginger root, minced
Juice from ½ lime
2 ginger cloves, minced
Boil the noodles for 5 minutes or until al dente. Drain and rinse in very cold water. Set aside. Boil green beans until just al dente. Drain and set aside.
In a bowl, mix the shrimp with 1 tbsp sweet chili sauce. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a wok and cook the shrimp for 2 minutes. Remove and set aside.
In the same pan, fry red pepper for 2 min. Add green beans and noodles.
Combine all ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl. Pour the sauce over the noodles, add the shrimp and snip the coriander over.
