2packagesuncooked ramen noodles (discard spice packet that comes with it)
1/2 - 3/4lbshrimp
2cupsjulienned (thinly sliced) veggies of your choice, such as carrots, red peppers, and chopped broccoli
1garlic clove, minced
optional garnish: sliced chives or green onions, chopped parsley
Make the sauce
In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, and ground ginger. Set aside.
Cook noodles according to package directions. When cooked, drain and set aside.
In a wok or large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook the shrimp until fully cooked (both sides should be a nice pink color), about 2-3 minutes. Add the vegetables and garlic, and stir constantly until vegetables are slightly softened, about 2-3 more minutes. Toss in the noodles and the sauce, and toss together until the noodles and veggies are well coated.
Garnish with fresh herbs if you wish. Serve immediately.
SHRIMP: Use as much or as little shrimp as you would like. This is truly a dish that you can make easily to your personal taste preference. You can even omit the shrimp to make this a vegetarian meal.
